Even with that small a populace + or - 3 could easily make that 51 in favor.

So? BTW half of those who opposed it on the poll were actually illegal aliens. They were not Americans.

This poll was most likely taken in sanctuary cities and states.

Besides, 1,009 out of 3000,000 is a very small percentage.

If there was a God, He would probably have all illegal aliens deported.

Funny thing is, this is from CNN: A liberal haven whose ratings are down in the dumps. They may as well put this poll up on the Huffington Post.

As much as I abhor illegal immigration, I despise the thought of changing the constitution. It's an extremely drastic measure and not really in keeping with legal precedent. Further, I do not like the idea of taking ANY individual rights away. When that happens it is time to start burning things...

Oh puhlease..........it's already BEEN changed, many times - wtf do you THINK amendments are?

No-one is suggesting rights be taken away except the FUTURE "rights" of those yet to deliver their babies on US soil while here illegally.

This would be the first amendment (apart from the 18th) that reduces rights.
