RE :”Much of the discussion surrounding the Gang of Eights 867-page immigration-reform bill has focused on how many Republican senators will ultimately support it. Their Democratic colleagues, meanwhile, are generally assumed to favor the bill but have largely escaped scrutiny. This is particularly true of Democrats from conservative states seeking reelection in 2014, for whom supporting immigration reform could prove politically challenging. Recent polling suggests their constituents may not be so enthusiastic about the Gangs proposal.
Numbers USA, a group that favors lower immigration levels and opposes the Gang of Eights bill, recently commissioned polling in states such as Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, and North Carolina, all of which voted for Mitt Romney, where incumbent Democrats are seeking reelection in 2014. The results, obtained by National Review Online, indicate that likely voters in those states do not support the major policies in the Gangs bill, particularly its lack of a strong border-security and enforcement trigger, and would be unlikely to back a politician who does.”
Of course GOP Senate traitors will give them cover by supporting it.
