Skip to comments.Poll: Majority Less Likely to Support Candidates Who Back Amnesty (the "dream" is dying!)
Posted on 03/12/2014 12:58:21 PM PDT by cotton1706
Another national poll has found that a plurality of Americans are less likely to support candidates for Congress who support amnesty.
An NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll asked respondents whether they would be more or less likely to vote for a candidate who "supports a pathway to citizenship for undocumented."
Forty-two percent of those surveyed, a plurality, said they would be "less likely," while thirty-six percent said they would be "more likely" to support a candidate who supports amnesty. Twenty percent of those surveyed were indifferent.
The poll's findings are consistent with those from an ABC News-Washington Post poll last week that found that 39% of registered voters were less likely to vote for a candidate who supports amnesty. That poll found that only 27% of registered voters were more likely to vote for candidates who support amnesty, while 31% said it would not make a difference.
As Breitbart News has reported, House GOP leaders, backed by big-business interests like the Chamber of Commerce, have tried to argue that the GOP can only remain viable if they pass amnesty legislation. But after the House GOP leadership released its "immigration principles," which leaders like Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) blasted as "amnesty," any momentum for such legislation has stalled. GOP leaders have said they would not move forward on immigration reform until President Obama can be trusted to enforce the country's immigration laws.
Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), though, have said they still want to get amnesty legislation done this year, and leading Democrats have indicated that this year would be the last chance to pass such legislation.
The poll interviewed 1,000 adults from March 5-9, and its margin of error is +/- 3.10%.

It's already mid-March of 2014 with no vote in the House. Time is running out...again!
Amnesty guarantees low wages and a permanent underclass; that’s why the Dems want amnesty.
Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico take away our jobs, Jobs, JOBS!
Let the word go forth: the ‘pathway to citizenship’ begins in one’s home nation.
If you’re at the end of the road, you’ve done it wrong and must start over. Sorry, Miguel!
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
If the GOP is complicit in this amnesty fiasco, either by taking up the Senate bill or through some piecemeal slight of hand with a series of House bills such as we hear are being cooked up of late, the GOP will cease to exist. It will not survive through the 2016 elections. The people will shun the over-tanned, glad-handing, backslapping quislings and look elsewhere for leaders who actually have the spine for the fight. Make no mistake - to me and to many, many others, amnesty is the GOP's Rubicon. Cross it at your electoral peril.
Except the underclass is us.
Many of these “business interests” aren’t even American owned corporations. Unless a corporation has a majority US citizen ownership, they shouldn’t be allowed any influence on American politics.No donations and no issue ads and not even political related letters to the editor.
Paging Marco Rubio...
Go for it, RINOs! The path to victory, right?
It is very simple for me: however we decide about the future legal status of people who violated the law to enter this country, who violated the law to stay here, and who violated the law to work here, it indicates moral confusion and denigrates the value of citizenship to even suggest that such people should ever have the right to vote.
If we allow millions of people who currently live here in violation of the law to have legal status, it means that they can fully compete in the labor market against full citizens. Unless the Congress repeals ObamaCare, at the low end of the value scale of jobs, most jobs will be part time with no benefits.
People who are food service workers, etc. have a hard enough time as it is. Now, thanks to ObamaCare, they must work at multiple part time jobs, and their standard of living will drop because they now have much higher commute costs and no benefits.
It is just as shameful to see corporate management pushing for amnesty as it is to see politicians who look upon the “amnesty demographic” as a new source of votes and support. This is cronyism of the worse sort, and it is doubly troubling how many low information voters who work for amnesty-supporting companies and who vote for amnesty-supporting politicians are just going to get screwed by the flood of newly legalized workers.
And Paul Ryan.
