Poll Shows Wide Support for Immigration Reform

According to the poll released by POLITICO, voters showed broad support for comprehensive immigration reform, even among Republicans.  64% of GOP respondents said they want comprehensive reform, compared with 78% of Democrats and 71% of independents.  The POLITICO poll is just the latest in a long line of national surveys that has found wide support for immigration reform.

Congress has not been able to get nothing done on legislations since the Senate passed its bill last June.  Overall, only 12% of those respondents in the POLITICO survey said they "strongly oppose" the reform.  Hispanics and Latinos "strongly supported" comprehensive reform while 85% of those respondents said it was "important" and 53% said it was "very important."  Most of the opposition was from Republican conservatives and Tea Party members.
