Mr Weeks :

Thanks for giving us this wonderful and useful link :

"--more on how immigration is not the third rail of Republican politics" from America's Voice.

Excerpt from this link :

Washington-Post/ABC News: Iowa Caucus-Goers Largely Support Gingrich on Immigration: A new Washington Post-ABC News poll of likely Iowa Republican caucus-goers finds that likely participants trust Gingrich the MOST on immigration, that the candidate’s recent immigration discussion has not harmed him and may have actually helped his candidacy in Iowa. The poll finds, “On immigration — where Gingrich and Romney squared off in a recent debate — 27 percent trust Gingrich the most to Romney’s 8 percent, with Perry and Paul in between, at 18 and 13 percent, respectively.” The poll also asked likely caucus-goers their specific reaction to “Newt Gingrich’s position on illegal immigration,” finding that for 38 percent it was a “major reason to support” Gingrich compared to only 15 percent for whom it was a “major reason to oppose.” Immigration also ranked low among the most important issues for caucus-goers, as only 3% of likely participants ranked immigration as their top issue. By comparison, 38 percent of likely caucus-goers named “economy and jobs,” 28 percent named “federal budget deficit,” and 15% named “social issues like abortion and gay marriage.”
