    I haven't seen the questions asked, so who knows how these were actually framed. Most of you know how I feel about numbers, and polls. They can be manipulated in many different ways. Never the less, these numbers do seem to fall in line with what the general public sentiment was towards the Amnesty Bill. Interestingly enough, it's this bill, which most likely is dead, that sank John McCain's campaign chances.



    Poll: Voters Want Smaller Steps to Immigration Reform With Focus on Enforcement

    Wednesday, June 13, 2007

    Just 20% of American voters want Congress to try and pass the immigration reform bill that failed in the Senate last week. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 51% would like their legislators to “take smaller steps towards reform” while 16% believe they should wait until next year. The survey was conducted on Monday and Tuesday night as the President was publicly attempting to rally support for the legislation.

    Sixty-nine percent (69%) of voters would favor an approach that focuses exclusively on “exclusively on securing the border and reducing illegal immigration.” Support for the enforcement only approach comes from 84% of Republicans, 55% of Democrats, and 69% of those not affiliated with either major party.

    Overall, just 21% are opposed to the enforcement-only approach.

    Just 30% would favor legislation that focused “exclusively on legalizing the status of undocumented workers already living in the United States.” Fifty-seven percent (57%) oppose that strategy, including 63% of Republicans, 52% of Democrats, and 55% of unaffiliated voters.

    Fifty-seven percent (57%) favor a proposal giving “all illegal aliens up to three years to leave the United States. After leaving, the illegal aliens would have to get in line and wait their turn for legal entry into the United States.” Support for that concept comes from 67% of Republicans, 49% of Democrats, and 56% of unaffiliated voters.

    Once the problems start the Left Wing Media won't be able to hide them, they will come, fast and furious so the only option they will have to cover for the Illegal Alien will be to find some way to blame the middle class white christian conservative (honkies).
