Poll Watch: Washington Post/ABC News Poll: 29% of American approve of the way President Bush is handling immigration; 64% disapprove. 52% of Americans would support "program giving ILLEGAL immigrants now living in the United States the right to live here LEGALLY if they pay a fine and meet other requirements" (44% would oppose).
Still, some political observers wonder, this slim majority in favor of the idea of legalization may provide only so much public comfort to the architects of the current "grand bargain" Senate bill. Two consecutive polls by Rasmussen show that only 26% of Americans support the concrete bill actually being debated at the moment, S. 1348.
