Rasmussen Poll: Voters Angry Over Immigration

Friday, August 22, 2008 1:43 PM

By: Jim Meyers Article Font Size

About 70 percent of voters believe that controlling the U.S. borders is more important than legalizing illegal immigrants, a new Rasmussen Reports national phone survey reveals.

Only 21 percent think legalization is more important.


Three out of four respondents said the government is not doing enough to secure the borders, while just 14 percent said the government’s efforts are sufficient.

Backers of Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain in the presidential race have differing views on immigration, Rasmussen found.

Among likely McCain voters, 86 percent believe gaining control of the borders is more important than legalizing undocumented workers; only 53 percent of likely Obama voters feel that way.

Nearly half of McCain supporters say they are angry about the current immigration situation, compared to just 19 percent for Obama backers.

This can't be true!

Only us whacko racists on this board are concerned about illegal immigration. Isn't that the sentiment of pro-illegals posting here?

Exactly. But we've known all along that there are plenty of Americans who'd rather voice their true opinions anonymously and in private.

Can I get a lil Hammertime.. . . . .?

Thanks Benicar!

That's even better since the copy cats can't come up with anything of their own. Then again, not only is their mission in life to emulate, they don't ever have anything to celebrate do they?

You're welcome! Yes, it was time for a change, since the other was shamefully hijacked.
