Oh, Hey, 57% Support Arizona’s Illegal Criminals Law

On Monday, The Christian Science Monitor had an article (via Yahoo News) that had support at 51-35% for/against the Arizona legislation. Yesterday, CBS came out with

Public support for Arizona’s controversial new immigration law has increased slightly, a new CBS News poll shows, with 57 percent of Americans characterizing the law as “about right” in the way it addresses the issue of illegal immigration.

Is anyone else getting tired of that phrase, “controversial new immigration law”? OK, moving on, a nice quote from the Yahoo article

“What is interesting here is that Americans are on the side of Arizona and seem to not share the US government’s views against the law, despite wide media coverage of the clash between [President] Obama and [Arizona Gov. Jan] Brewer on this issue,” says Raghavan Mayur, president of TIPP.

As usual, Obama is on the wrong side of what the American people want.

    CBS is being even sneakier than you mention.

    57% say ‘about right’. Plus another 17% say ‘doesn’t go far enough’. That’s 74% support.

    23% ‘too far’
    2% ‘don’t know’

  2. John Ryan says:

    74% ??? That was about the same level of support that the law against inter racial marriage had before it was declared unconstitutional
