As President Bush makes himself a central player in immigration debate, a newly released Rasmussen poll puts support for his handling of the immigration issue at 15%. This result comes at a time when, again according to Rasmussen, only 20% of the American public wants the Senate to return to the current "grand bargain" bill; 51% would prefer "smaller steps" in reform and 16% would like the whole process to wait another year. 69% of those polled would support an approach that "focuses exclusively on securing the border and reducing illegal immigration.”
