Comment: Voters' Stand on Immigration
Ahead of the midterm election Politico conducted a poll that attempted to gauge voters' attitudes toward the political parties' handling of immigration issues.
The poll found that 35 percent of voters in the most competitive House and Senate races this fall said they approved of how Obama has dealt with immigration, compared with 64 percent who said they disapproved of the president's handling of the issue. And by a narrow margin, more voters said they trust the GOP over Democrats on immigration.
Yet the same poll found that a significant majority (two-thirds) support comprehensive immigration reform - which is regarded as a key issue in this election. These two findings appear conflicting, since the GOP is the one (so far) opposing the reform that passed by the Democratic-led Senate. The explanation for that paradox could be the President's decline in approval rating (relating to foreign policy). Share your thoughts by writing to email@example.com.
