CBS News Poll: 51% of Americans Support Path to Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants

by Colonel on January 30, 2013

“Fifty-one percent think illegal immigrants should be able to remain in the country and apply for citizenship, while an additional 20 percent think they should stay as guest workers. Twenty-four percent say they should have to leave the country, according to a CBS News poll released Monday night.

The latest survey shows an 8-percentage-point shift from the 43 percent of Americans who thought illegal immigrants should be able to stay and apply for citizenship in March 2010. …

But along party lines, the response today is widely partisan. Only 35 percent of Republicans think illegal immigrants should be able to stay and apply for citizenship, compared with 66 percent of Democrats, according to the CBS poll. Twenty-five percent of Republicans think they should stay as guest workers, compared with 17 percent of Dems.
