It’s understandable to me that many people, when asked directly, respond to questions about illegal immgrants this way. However, what’s promising to me is the fact that the majority said that would agree to a path of citizenship for those that have been working in this country for two or more years. That tells me that most people are caring and do understand these are human beings not “illegals.”

Ohio might be a swing state for next year’s presidential election, but its voters are decidedly less split on the immigration controversy, a new poll indicates.
The latest Quinnipiac University Poll, which surveyed 1,231 Ohio voters between Nov. 6 and 11, found that 84 percent believe the government should not issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, while 86 percent of surveyed voters oppose providing illegal immigrants with government-subsidized health insurance. The strongest majority in the poll, 88 percent, came from support for the government requiring employers to verify the validity of Social Security numbers used to gain employment.
