Look at the comments underneath the article & I agree with many of their statements regarding this poll.

I would like to know who all these "most Americans" are? I have an idea. If most Americans are for it, it would pass a national vote for a Constitutional Amendment. If not, nice try - media! I miss the days when the media reported the news as opposed to created the news.

The survey, conducted between March 6 and 10, was based on 4,465 Spanish and English telephone interviews with adults." Sounds like there was a disproportionate number of Spanish interviews compared with English ones! What else would you expect from the Brookings Institute? Once again, it's like Mark Twain said: "There are lies, there are damned lies, and then there are statistics!!"

Why in the world would any of these polls be conducted in Spanish? Hmm. Did they also conduct them in Mandarin, German, Polish, etc.? Thought not.
