Tyler (KETK) — During the last year, we have heard all the wise men on the left and right tell the Republican Party if they don't do this amnesty thing, they would be in big trouble.
Even media gadfly Karl Rove has played this trumpet until his face was red. Then the current immigration crisis happened.
Neil Munroe has an interesting piece in today's Daily Caller.
Here is what it says:
Only 28 percent of swing-voting independents support President Barack Obama's immigration policies, while 59 percent oppose those policies, according to a new CBS poll, which also shows that GOP voters think immigration is a more important issue than Obamacare.
That's a big problem for Obama, as he heads into a critical election season while promising to impose an unprecedented national amnesty for several million illegals, in the face of opposition from Congress.
Munroe writes GOP-leaning supporters already oppose his immigration policy, by 85 percent to 7 seven percent, while Democrats are split, with 33 percent disapproving and 56 approving of his immigration policies, said the poll of Americans, not voters.
Overall, Americans disapprove of his immigration policies by 57 to 31 percent. That's much worse than his overall rating, which showed 40 percent approval, and 54 percent disapproval, said CBS.
So, once again, the wise men in Washington are so disconnected from the rest of the country-- living in their vacuum.
Doesn't this surprise you? Not me.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
