Guess how many think that the "invasion" is the most important problem facing the U.S?

Wowza . . . . . . NOT. The outcome of a poll is dictated by the population being polled.

As far we know this one could have been done in the White House.

Or in Mexico.

I doubt that we would have unprecedented enactment of state laws to combat illegal immigration if a mere 2% of the populace considered it important. The evidence highly contradicts this.

BTW, I have NEVER been contacted to vote on a poll. Have you? As a matter of fact, I canít think of ONE person Iíve spoken with who has participated.

Isn't Immigration Watchdog full of bias polls? I mean people go to the website to read on the negative effects of illegal immigration, why would they read the content when it says "Most Americans don't care about immigration"?

If even ONE American citizen who has to pay for these freeloaders objects to it, then no illegals should be allowed.

The American people did not agree to pay for them. I object - the pro-illegal crowd can pay for them.

If you want them and have no objection, PAY for them. That's fine with the rest of us who are anti-illegal. That way, there would be a lot less illegals.

We're all created equal-- if we're born in the U.S. So we must bare the burden . Even though I think most social programs should be cut off from the sole purpose of people abusing them. Most being American.

Agreed

Mind reader Seriously, to answer your question no, I have never been contacted/polled. I was going to add that very comment to my post but figured why bother since the only response from the OP would be a change in the topic or an impartial justification masquerading as a reply.

The fact that they are polls in and of itself dictates a degree of bias. Even those polls that may or may not target a race/gender specific populations are only going to illicit a response from "X' amount of people.

A totally unbiased poll would be solicitation of an entire population (regardless of race/gender) and of course we all know that never happens.

Yeah you're absolutely correct. But there is nothing like riling up people by jacking up polls another 20% LOL!
