In a Politico/George Washington University survey, 62% of all Americans favor a road to citizenship for illegal immigrants. 35% oppose any measure.
Republicans favor the idea 49-45%, while Democrats say yes by a margin of 77-19%.
President Obama’s “Dream Act”, allowing children of ‘undocumented’ or illegal workers to stay permanently in the country if they graduate from college or serve in the military received a whopping 77 percent favorability, vs. only 19% in opposition.
The poll also shows that President Obama has not done enough to solve the problem. He received 44% in favor of his policies, vs. 48% against.
The poll showed Republicans lagging behind in serious discussion over the issue.
That may change, all they have to do is to look at the percentage of Latino vote they did not receive in the election.
