    Poll information from NumbersUSA

    Below is the press release we are sending nationwide later today.

    The poll data shows a far greater agreement with our goals of reducing immigration numbers than I had imagined.

    If you know anybody in any kind of media, please pass this email on to them so that they might incorporate some of this data into their writing.

    I hope you feel encouraged to find out how many Americans agree with you.

    Poll: As Nation Hits 300 Million Milestone,
    Most Americans Prefer Cutting Immigration
    Over Adding Another 100 Million

    Contact: Caroline Espinosa

    WASHINGTON D.C. – A poll of likely American voters at the end of September has revealed great discomfort about the rapid U.S. population growth being caused by federal immigration policies.

    With the U.S. Census Bureau predicting U.S. population will pass the 300 million mark about three weeks before the November elections, Americans do not appear to be in a celebratory mood about having added another 100 million people to their communities since the 1970 Census.

    The full results from the population survey by The Polling Company Inc./Woman Trend will be provided and discussed Tuesday in the Murrow Room of the National Press Club.

    8 a.m. – Reception

    9-10:30 a.m. – “300 Million: Milestone or Millstone?” Press conference and panel, moderated by William B. Dickinson, founding Director/General Manager of the Washington Post Writers’ Group, Professor of Journalism, University of Kansas.

    Key poll findings:

    Current population growth trends draw a negative reaction from the majority of likely voters of every group of Americans, regardless of race, political party, age, gender, income, education, marital status, type of occupation or place of residence in the nine regional divisions in the survey.

    In light of Census Bureau projections that immigration will add another 100 million people to the U.S. over the next 50 years, only 3% of likely voters believe immigration numbers should be increased over present levels. This suggests that leaders of Congress made a wise political choice to go back home to campaign for re-election without moving the Senate’s and the President’s plans for large immigration increases.

    Asked how the present population-growth trend would affect their own community if immigration is not reduced, nine times more likely voters said the population growth would make their quality of life worse than said it would make it better (65% to 7%). There was little difference among the regions.

    64% of likely voters say the country’s response to current population growth should be to “reduce the number of immigrants entering the U.S.”

    People who identify themselves as Born Again Christians are among the most concerned of voters about the effects of immigration-driven population growth.

    The "Milestone or Millstone" event will feature:

    I believe that all of you should be able to find many different ways to use the information in this poll to good effect between now and the election.
