This is from Tuesday’s USA Today, but it’s very important. It shows how out of touch the President and the Congress are with the pulse of the nation, when it comes to illegal immigration. While most Americans are sadly clueless on this very important issue, those that have a clue have the right view, overwhelmingly:
As the Senate prepares to vote on a landmark immigration bill, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds that Americans who have an opinion about it are overwhelmingly opposed to the deal.
By nearly 3-1, those who have a view say they’re against the compromise supported by Senate Democratic leaders and President Bush. However, 58% of those surveyed say they don’t know enough about the legislation to favor or oppose it.
The telephone poll of 1,007 adults was taken Friday through Sunday.
For the 58% clueless, I recommend they read Kris Kobach’s column in today’s Washington Times: “A Wake Up Call for the Senate,” on immigration and terrorism and how they are inextricably linked.
