Guess the majority of americans are like me. They don't mind giving legal status to illegal immigrants if they pay taxes, were brought here as kids aka dream act or if they are married to citizens. The poll also found that the voters trust the dems to handle immigration better than the republicans. Immigration is not even a top 4 issue.

Census Bureau Projects Population of 303.1 Million
As our nation prepares to ring in the new year, the U.S. Census Bureau today projected the Jan. 1, 2008, population will be 303,146,284 -- up 2,842,103 or 0.9 percent from New Year’s Day 2007.
In January, the United States is expected to register one birth every eight seconds and one death every 11 seconds.
Meanwhile, net international migration is expected to add one person every 30 seconds. The result is an increase in the total U.S. population of one person every 13 seconds.

i find the funniest thing about polls is that we are supposed to believe they are impartial, and widespread.....but i wasnt polled and neither were millions of other americans....
we are supposed to take each independant poll as the gospel...yet if all americans are not polled then how can this be true?
my opinion on illegal immigration is that if you are here illegally you are breaking the law...i believe that if you commit another crime while being here illegally you should be sent home...i couldnt care less if these illegals are paying taxes....because most arent.
and i do believe that the immigration issue is in the top two percent of americans concerns....about dems handleing the immigration issue, hogwash...i dont trust any politician at this point...and if you want to know why, then read some of my threads.

A Yahoo poll? That's dependable, I'm sure.

I'll take Rasmussen or Zogby any day.

In the meantime, folks in Orange County seem to be taking immigration pretty seriously...

I'd say thats hedging the parameters of said pole to the point that results are meaningless. Did you ever take college statistics.
