...the Democratic blue collar base (or what is left of it) that is seen as the pollster as the most negative because they know that economic competition with third world labor is reducing their standard of living.

True. Look at the construction trades--they're being flooded with illegals that'll work for peanuts, forcing the tradesmen to either compete or get out of the field.

Tell me, cheap labor Dane, is there some poll out there that says different ? Is there some poll out there that shows blue collar Americans just thrilled about illegals driving down their wages ? You have some poll about Americans construction workers happy about losing their jobs ?

This poll is the latest in a series saying pretty much the same thing. There is a strong grass roots anger about illegal immigration especially among Americans who are hardest hit economically by competition with illegals.

Religious conservatives are blue collar primarily. If the GOP nominates a McCain or a Giuliani who is weak on borders and the Dems nominate someone who at least talks tough on illegal immigration, they will either sit home on election day or cross over.
