    ABC News Poll: Strong Majority Support for Immigrant Legalization Program

    57% support. 39% oppose. This is virtually the same as the last time the question was asked in 2010 and up ten points from 2007. Interestingly, support has remained strong even in the depths of the Great Recession. Republicans worried about the politics of supporting moderate immigration policies need to stop worrying. This poll is actually one of the weaker ones for the pro-immigration side and it still shows that supporting legalization is popular with the general public and not just Latino voters. Of course, other polls also show that immigration doesn't rank particularly high on the issues of concern to most Americans so even if the policy were not as strongly supported by the public, it would still make sense politically to sign off on immigration reform.
