A new poll being released later Thursday could send a warning to politicians nationwide: Oppose immigration reform at your peril.
The results from the survey, sponsored by a trio of GOP-friendly groups and provided to POLITICO in advance, indicate that voters will be warmer toward politicians who favor immigration reform, an effort that faces an uphill battle in the Republican-led House.
Organizations that put together the poll includes Spiess group (Republicans for Immigration Reform), as well as the Partnership for a New American Economy, the pro-reform coalition headed up by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Compete America, a tech-industry coalition backing reform.

Intensity of support matters. If 20% of the voters will vote against you if you support immigration reform, the wishy-washy guys who would kind of like immigration reform if it’s not too much trouble won’t save you.
Yeah, just like the polls that said TMac was going to crush Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia by double digits.
they do favor a temporary farm worker program that provides for the temps going home after the work season ends.
and they do want the borders sealed.
Another poll says all of America like sugar cookies. It doesn’t mean they will get them, however.
Despite Seung Kim’s cheerleading, immigration ‘reform’ is where it was in 2007 which is why both parties jawbone it but know better than to act on it.
And a poll of the supreme Court justices provided us with the right to kill our own children. So what. what does the constitution provide.
Are we a mob rule nation? Or a nation of rules based on natural law?
Who are they polling? Illegals?
Someone with the know-how needs to start exposing who is commissioning these polls. They’re not random samplings, someone is footing the bill.
It’s dead, Jim.
B/S!! No amnesty!!
For the last 40 years, the Party of Government (both Democrat wing and Republican wing) has done all it can to replace American voters with Mexicans.
No agendas here, nothing to be suspicious about. Seems all good, true and above-board. Just some anonymous but honest RINOs are teaming up with their good friends at Politico to help the nation out of bind, and showing what selfless public servants are all about.
Let’s put them in Bloomin Idiots and Facebook punk’s neighborhoods (to live, not to clean their toilets)
And see how much enthusiasm the hypocrite elites have
So three push polls... conducted by three pro amnesty GOP groups... published by Politico... Equals Bogus!
Everyone is for “Reform”, who wouldn’t be?
It’s Open-Borders AMNESTY they are against.
Wording means everything.
The libs are being told we are against IMMIGRATION.
We aren’t, we are against ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Be sure to ask them if they know the difference.
This is great! The gop is dumb enough and unprincipled enough to go for this - which means it will die that much quicker!!
DIE RINO party, DIE!!!
