GOP Backs Path to Citizenship Unless Obama Supports It

A new Washington Post poll finds that 70% of Americans said they would support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, including 60% of Republicans.

But when the same question was asked of a separate sample of respondents, this time with Obama's name attached to it, support dropped to 59% overall and just 39% among Republicans.

Numbers inply that a greater number of people voted FOR
the measure if associated with Obama.

The overall only lost 11% (70%-50%=11%)

The Repubs went down by 21% (60%-39%=21%)

Which means that more Dems and/or Independants voted for the measure when it was associated with Obama.

3. It is good to see the high polling numbers in support of a path to citizenship in principle.

If some republicans want to change their support if Obama's name is attached to the idea that just proves what mental midgets they are.

4. Suppose you were an idiot....

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
- Mark Twain, a Biography

Congressman is the trivialist distinction for a full grown man.
- Notebook #14, Nov. 1877 - July 1878

All Congresses and Parliaments have a kindly feeling for idiots, and a compassion for them, on account of personal experience and heredity.
- Mark Twain's Autobiography; also in Mark Twain in Eruption
