    Not to quote myself, but something is wrong with this poll??? I voted yes that too many people are in this country illegally.

    The vast majority of polls show that 80% or more of the American public want immigration laws enforced, borders secured and illegal aliens deported, etc.

    This poll's results are scewed for lack of a better term or spelling.

    I am puzzled and confused

    DECEPTIVE WORDING

    Poll is worded wrong (DECEPTIVE). Legislation wording may change during the polling. Who's legislation was not specified. Fair for who? Americans or illegals - it doesn't say. It should have specified which legislation at which point in time. Option 3. Vague. Tancredo said on TV, about existing laws needing better enforcement.

    The pollmeister can interpret the results any way he pleases after it's over. I think that the pollmeister is PRO ILLEGAL.

    What part of "We don't owe our jobs to India" are you unable to understand, Senator?

    I think the poll is talking about the Congressional bill, not the one in the Senate.

    Also, just l like that AOL poll the other day... this poll has been cooked the wrong way and now is starting to shift back towards the publics true attitudes. It is up to 32.4

    William, I agree that the way the choices are worded implies 4437 but I can't figure out how come there are so many sticking up for the "poor workers" who came here to work us over.
