Rasmussen Reports says that 26% of people are angry about immigration—but they don`t have anyone to vote for, because of "bipartisanship."
26% Angry About Immigration, The Issue Candidates Ignore
Rasmussen ReportsThursday, October 23, 2008
Itâ€™s the issue both presidential candidates have largely ignored as they court the nationâ€™s growing Hispanic population, but one-out-of-four U.S. voters (26%) is still angry about the current immigration situation.Twenty-eight percent (28%) express frustration about immigration, but for 43% itâ€™s just one of many issues, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.With increased enforcement of the borders and Americaâ€™s struggling economy serving as less of a magnet for illegal immigrants seeking better-paying jobs, it is perhaps not surprising that the number who are angry is down from 34% in August.But as in August, 74% continue to believe the government is not doing enough to secure the nationâ€™s borders. Just 12% think enough is being done.Only 35% say it is possible to end illegal immigration, compared to 52% who say it is not possible. [More]
Republicans look like losing this election not only in the White House, but in the Senate and the House of Representatives, too. And it`s partly because they`re failing to pick up a lot of those angry voters.
