If there’s one thing people in the Great Lakes region seem united about in these politically divisive times, it’s their hatred of Asian carp.

A new poll shows more than 90 percent of residents in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin want the federal government to form a stronger blockade in the Chicago area to keep northerly migrating silver and bighead Asian carp from getting into Lake Michigan via Illinois rivers.
