However, Amnesty peddlers have spun "CIR" to represent Amnesty and are using these poll results to enable the pardoning of criminals..

Also, this "research group" sounds like one backed by La Raza, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and or some other ethnocentric or open-borders affiliated group..
Exactly, and that's why when people were explained what it meant, the number of acceptance increased.

Do you have EVIDENCE of this? The polls that I have had to respond to the questions were "In General" and was told to answer as best I can.. The pollsters don't necessarily ELABORATE, if this was the case it was unlikely that Ethnocentric groups could spin the results to promote amnesty for Illegal Aliens..

Gulfnews: US economy is improving, Summers says

From the Business journal;

Quote:
U.S. unemployment rose to 9.4 percent in May from 8.9 percent in April. (Full report.)
Here is the statement on the latest unemployment data by Keith Hall, commissioner of the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor, which released the new numbers, as prepared for delivery Friday to the Joint Economic Committee of Congress.



Madam Chair and members of the committee: Thank you for the opportunity to discuss the employment and unemployment data that we released this morning.
Nonfarm payroll employment declined by 345,000 in May. Job losses had averaged 643,000 per month during the prior 6 months. In May, the unemployment rate rose from 8.9 to 9.4 percent. Since the recession began in December 2007, payroll employment has fallen by 6.0 million, and the unemployment rate has increased by 4.5 percentage points.
Just because thing aren't getting worse at the same pace does not mean it has turned around. Your left hand spin is unbelievable. Its like GM claiming that things are getting better by not going bad so fast?

I really love that people and economist are saying thing look better in May because they PLANNED on losing 500,000 jobs and they only lost 345,000. That is the most up the ass thinking I have ever seen in my life.

I'm getting hailed on, rained on, and the wind is blowing really hard, but hey! I didn't get hit by lightning!
