Polling Data Shows GOP Voters Think Republicans Standing Tough On Immigration Most Important Issue
Breitbart ^ | July 31st, 2014 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 07/31/2014 12:52:58 PM PDT by Mariner

Polling data compiled by Tea Party Patriots and provided exclusively to Breitbart News shows that a majority of Republican voters think Republicans standing strong on immigration is more important than repealing Obamacare, getting to the bottom of the Benghazi or IRS scandals—or anything else for that matter.

When asked by TPP’s pollster which issue they think is the important for Republicans in Congress to deal with, 34.6 percent of GOP voters said stopping the flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border. Stopping Obama’s “illegal overreach” with executive power came in a distant second with 24 percent of GOP voters saying that’s the most important, while 23 percent saying repealing Obamacare is the most important and just 7.2 percent say the IRS scandal is the most important issue and 2.8 percent say the Benghazi scandal is most important. A total of 8.4 percent of GOP voters said they don’t know or refused to answer.

The poll was conduced with 1,000 likely GOP voters on Thursday, July 24 via a combination of cell phones and landlines nationwide, with a margin of error of 3.2 percent.

This is make or break for the Repulsicans.

They allow amnesty and they are a dead party.

Future Drudge Report Headline: (apologies, Monty Python group)

The GOP is no more! It has ceased to be! Its expired and gone to meet its maker! Its stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! Its metabolic processes are now ‘istory! Its off the twig! Its kicked the bucket, its shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARTY!!

This is encouraging - it shows a realistic sense of perspective.

Preventing legalization of millions of line jumpers IS the most important issue... if we lose nothing else will matter.

And yes, on this the GOPe is as dangerous an enemy as are the democrats.

There are 3.5 Republicans who stand tough on immigration. There are probably more Democrats against it, for union reasons, but maybe they can’t admit it.

Is Ted Cruz the only one with any nerve anymore?

Think about what just happened. A Freshman Senator goes over to the house and kills a bill that probably would have passed a couple of days ago. That is how weak the GOP leadership is.

It may be political suicide, but the guy is a leader.

I don’t understand why the Chamber of Commerce supports amnesty because when the illegal aliens get their green card, they will no longer have to work for below scale wages.

After nearly fours years of caving-in and then approving payment for everything that Obama has wanted, Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner has proven himself to be Obama’s primary enabler for Obama’s DEMOCRAT BROTHERHOOD GOVERNMENT.

The US House “Sue Obama” Bill defines Speaker Boehner’s political philosophy: TALK BIG, and DO NOTHING.

This “Sue Obama” House Bill will be quickly rejected by the Courts because Judges appointed by politicians in the Democrat Brotherhood Government, (DBG), have promised to not interfere with the goals of the DBG.

Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner is always willing to defer to the opinion of Judges appointed by Democrat Brotherhood Politicians.

Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner has convinced most voters in the Public and US House of Representatives that NOTHING CAN BE DONE to punish B. Hussein Obama for violating the US Constitution unless he is removed from Office by the US Senate.

IOW, Speaker Boehner, by doing nothing, Boehner violates his unique Constitutional Duty to “Control the Purse” or Impeach Obama, and thus is passing the buck to a Democrat-controlled US Senate that will never Remove Obama from Office.

Obama knows that as long as Boehner stays in as Speaker, then Obama has permission do whatever he wants to do, with no fear of punishment.

Boehner as Speaker is ESSENTIAL to permitting Obama to violate the US Constitution on a near daily basis.

Stupid and weak Boehner is, by far, “The best Speaker of the US House that the Democrat Party has ever had.”

Removal from Office can only come from the US Senate, and ONLY if the US House Impeaches BEFORE the US Senate even considers whether or not to bring an Impeachment to the Floor of the US Senate.

BTW, “stupid” people are those people who are incapable of learning, and Speaker Boehner and all those who refuse to use the Checks and Balances found in the US Constitution are TRULY STUPID, especially the Republican Member supporters of Boehner as Speaker in the US House of Representatives.

Well— they are still all jabbering about what to do...

I have put the ear around DC House staffers and some of my other contacts that what they need to do is a DONTGO 2014...

No vaca

Keep the House open and insist that Harry and Obama agree to a solution instead of just demanding money and control...they have been in control and this is what they have created...

If they don’t go on vaca, it takes away Obama’s trick to bash the Republicans for not doing anything for a whole month, forces the press to hang around the House, and the folks there get to get the word out. They are there and ready to pass a bill to solve the crisis... as soon as Harry and Obama want an actual solution all they need to do is sign the bill..

I do, the powers that be will lower our wages to equal theirs. That is my guess anyway.

Somebody should tell that sobbing worm, Boehner about that very accurate poll.

If any GOP congress beer thinks voting for amnesty will be a plus for them in Nov. after schools in their states will be stuck with illegal illiterate children, they will be very surprised.

“the powers that be” are always temporary. Always. It’s just that they can do a lot of harm during a temporary period.

It’s a little hard to get a C of C genius to clearly spit out just what it is that they want but it shakes out like this: What they actually want is more East Indian techy types who work cheaper than home grown technical graduates which in turn would push down the wage scale for all those non-production geek jobs. They really don’t care so much about low-end un-educated grass mowers except that the threat of their presence helps keep wage pressure down on entry or low level jobs. No member of theC of C is going to get caught hiring illegals, except maybe Tyson, but the presence of the illegals has an effect.

On the upper end it’s not just C of C-—start with guys like Bill Gates and work your way sideways with his friends and you’ll see where the pressure is coming from. And this crowd wants faster population growth. They’re just not happy with our normal 1%. They see new customers as their means to success ——instead of making stuff we can actually use.

“They allow amnesty and they are a dead party.”

They will be dead to me the minute they pass an amnesty bill.

I’m glad the rest of the country is FINALLY joining me in noticing how amnesty would destroy the country. I’ve been saying this for over a decade now, after CA passed Prop 187, which would have all but eliminated illegals from this state.

An activist judge overthrew the will of the people and now we are escaping Mexifornia to move to the U.S. If amnesty and/or infiltration by the defacto amnesty that Obama has allowed to happen or orchestrated happens, the third world is coming to your town next.

I just hope it takes long enough where we are escaping to that I get to die in what seems like the U.S.

Sessions is right there with him. Both are awesome! They remind me of the Tancredo/Hunter team in the 109th House that saved us from having amnesty.

“No member of theC of C is going to get caught hiring illegals, except maybe Tyson, but the presence of the illegals has an effect.”

My hubby was taking to a guy at the races last Saturday that drove a truck. He said wages here are suppressed so much that he can’t make a living. (He blamed the HUGE population of illegals and anchor babies. They don’t necessarily drive trucks, but do hold down wages in other areas. So maybe he’s right.)

What I don’t get - he’s jumping from the 1st most invaded state to the 2nd (Texas). At least there is work there, but almost as many illegals to suppress wages, steal, and destroy what’s left of public education.

Obamacare repeal is not going to happen as long as Obama is in the WH. And every year that goes by just makes it that more impossible. If/When Hillary is elected, then there will be no repeal, And that seems likely due to the rapidly changing demographics of this country fueled by mass legal immigration over the past 40 years.

I am glad to see that smug little wimpering RINO McCarthy get his Ass handed to him today in the well of the house. They Booed him when he said the members may be called back if he can get the votes to sell out America.

Also I have been getting Email bombed by the NRSC pleading for money. It’s been fun telling them to go pound sand, to bad you wasted all that money in Mississippi attacking a Conservative.

Which goes to show just who has representation in our representative democracy.

illegal lawbreakers have plenty of representation.

conservative, taxpaying, law-abiding citizens who will have to pay the bills for illegals have none.

IMO There are many important issues but this one may well have the greatest chance of destroying the country.

Bring in enough 3rd world people and pretty soon it naturally follows you have a 3rd world country.

They also are going to vote as a block for what they want and they will cost trillions in borrowed and unborrowed dollars trillions.

The principal reason, I believe, is to demote Harry Reid from Majority Leader to Minority Leader. (So much legislation that has been passed by the House has never been allowed to see the light of day in Harry Reid's Senate.)

Dummycrats have been lacerating Repubs claiming only they have the "courage" to stand up for "what the American people want"---comprehensive immigration reform and the suckup "Dream Act."

OKAY, GOT IT----- PATRIOTS, PASS IT ON---Dummycrats publicly admit they are the imbeciles catering to the hordes at the border. Go for it---Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, blogs---this needs to go viral.

============================================

TALKING POINTS---all the polls show voters leaning Repub
b/c of their strong stance against amnesty....FAR above all other issues.

PASS THE WORD--Dummycrats are opposed to a pro-America border bill------
w/ provisions Obama claimed he, himself, wanted in US law.
