Majority of Registered Voters Support Path to Citizenship for Undocumented Immigrants, New Polls Show
According to the results of a new poll released on December 10, 62 percent of registered voters support immigration reform that includes a provision granting undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. The new Politico/George Washington University Battleground survey echoes the message of former polls conducted by organizations such as ABC News, The Washington Post, and CNN, in which a majority of voters have signaled support for providing undocumented immigrants with permanent legal status rather than focusing on enforcement and deportation efforts.
The poll also shows that a significant majority of registered voters supports the DREAM Act, which would allow certain young undocumented immigrants to obtain permanent legal status in the United States if they complete college or serve in the armed forces. According to recent reports, the prospect of including a path to citizenship in a forthcoming immigration reform package may come as soon as early next year, after current fiscal cliff negotiations are expected to be resolved.
