Support for Senate Amnesty Bill at all time low.


From WorldNetDaily…

The Rasmussen survey showed a bipartisan lack of enthusiasm for the Senate bill.

It has the support of only 22 percent of Republicans, 23 percent of Democrats and 22 percent of those not affiliated with either major party.

The opposition numbers are similar: 52 percent of Republicans, 50 percent of Democrats and 48 percent of unaffiliateds.

Rasmussen also broke down the results by ideological persuasion. The bill is opposed by 59 percent of Americans who say they’re politically conservative, 54 percent of liberals and 45 percent of moderates.

Rasmussen said just 32 percent believe it would be better to pass the current bill instead of doing nothing. Forty-five percent think it would be better to pass nothing at all.

Rasmussen, noting it was the first polling firm to document broad public opposition to the Senate bill, said its results have been confirmed by an NBC/Wall Street Journal survey and by the Democratic polling firm Greenberg Quinlan.

“Even polls touted by supporters of the legislation showed a strong desire for more serious enforcement measures,” Rasmussen said, pointing out a CBS News/New York Times survey found 69 percent of Americans want illegal aliens prosecuted and deported.

Rasmussen has found just 15 percent of voters say President Bush is doing a good or an excellent job on the immigration issue.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who has been identified with the immigration bill along with Sen. Ted Kennedy, has seen his presidential poll numbers collapse across the board, Rasmussen pointed out.
