I believe that it will sway more than it did last time. His credibility is in question. More are aware of the illegal immigration problem before and many more are angry about the actual numbers.
Personally I dont think Obama pulled any strings to help his aunt. It may have been done just because of who he is. I dont know.
Now his uncle and the same story.

FWIW illegal immigration was a much bigger issue last election just because it was a hot button issue in 2005/2006. But rhymetime is talking about this dude (his alleged uncle) in particular.

You don't think he pulled any strings? If he pulled strings there wouldn't even be an issue because they both be legal. As the other guy noted, the fact that the PRESIDENT'S UNCLE can't get a green card shows that the "go get in line" mantra is totally bogus (not to mention shows that he's not pulling any strings).

Find me a poll that is not sponsored by FAIR,Numbers USA,CIS or some other immigration restrictionist group that support your claims.

In all actuality, the price of a gallon of gas at the time will have more effect...
