Most american voters so far favor a comprehensive approach to immigration just like John McCain. He won easily in florida, california, arizona, oklahoma, missouri. Romney tried to take a hardline approach and failed miserably. So in the general elections, we will have both dem and McCain supporting Comprehensive Immigration Reform. I am extremely glad that the conservative talk show hosts and the followers have been exposed for being all talk but no voting power. They are seriously out of touch with the majority of the American Voters.

.....nothing new there....

The talking heads and the 'pundits' haven't been able to track the correct narrative for ages.

I think all the Ron Paul votes in America are actively on this city-data.com (conservative-data.com) forum .

I am very proud of Americans, they have spoken on side of reason, even in states like California and Arizona.

Please show your data.

Using the election results to gain insight into opinion on illegal immigration is faulty. I may as well state that Americans support an Islamist takeover, seeing that Huckabee failed to take the lead. Or I could claim that Americans support the war in Iraq...or any other non-sequitur I can come up with.

Every poll taken, over many years, shows that Americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration, but go ahead, keep kidding yourself. I mean, all these states and localities legislating against illegals must just be a fluke. The 80% of New Yorkers who stopped Spitzer from issuing licenses to illegals really do support amnesty; they just don't know it yet.

The illegal immigration issue is now being handled by the states, and will continue to go that way. The federal govt (no matter who is President) will not do their jobs.

I don't think that's why McCain has more votes than Romney. In fact, McCain is a liberal Republican, and some say that it'll be like voting between two Dems - McCain and either Hilary or Obama.

Maybe he's ahead because he's so liberal. Some Dems are probably voting for him, and independents.

Whatever makes you happy explorer. The fact is hardliners on immigration have been rejected by the American People. Spin it anyway you want.

Actually, hardliners on immigration have been rejected by the media elite who have their own agenda to follow, the one being written by their corporate paymasters. The American people are the ones who in poll after poll REJECT amnesty for illegals by 4 to 1.

From most polls i have seen, majority of americans support legalization. Immigration is not even an issue in the democratic party, it is a distant third in the republican party.

Thank you.

Who thinks that our so-called "leaders", no matter who they are, are going to stop illegal immigration? WE, the people, must do it, like we did with the shamesty bill TWICE last year. Our leaders do not represent us on this issue. But, you'd have to have your head in the sand to not realize how the American people feel.
