LA Times poll finds Californians split on AZ law, Latinos opposed
The LA Times has a new poll out this morning, and the headline is “Californians split on Arizona’s illegal immigration crackdown.”
Here is a quick summary from the story:
Overall, 50% of registered voters surveyed said they support the law, which compels police to check the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally, while 43% oppose it. That level of support is lower than polls have indicated nationwide.
But attitudes among the state’s voters are not uniform. Strong majorities of white voters and those over 50 support the Arizona law, while Latinos and those under 30 are heavily opposed.
