    Poll: Voters split over immigration debate

    The Associated Press
    SALT LAKE CITY -- A new poll shows voters in Utah's 3rd Congressional District are equally split in the debate over solving the problem of illegal immigration.

    The Deseret Morning News poll found 47 percent of voters surveyed support a combined effort of enforcement and pathways to legal immigrant status, while 44 percent said they preferred an enforcement-only strategy.

    But the Dan Jones & Associates poll of 617 registered voters from the district has a 4 percent margin of error, making it difficult to analyze voter differences, the newspaper reported Sunday.

    Five percent of those polled said they did not prefer either option, while 4 percent said they didn't know. Solving the illegal immigration puzzle has become the pivotal issue in the primary race between 3rd District incumbent Rep. Chris Cannon, R-Utah, and his challenger, Republican John Jacob.

    The survey showed Cannon with a 46-to-33 percent lead. Eighteen percent of respondents were undecided heading into Tuesday's primary.

    The U.S. House and Senate are at a stalemate over immigration reform. A House proposal calls for tougher border security and stricter enforcement of immigrations laws, while the Senate has passed legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants currently in the U.S.

    Jacob said he was surprised the poll reflected a lower percentage of support for enforcement-only strategies, but said the response may be colored by the complexity of the issue.

    "They understand a wall, they understand sending illegal immigrants back. They're not clear on what amnesty means, or guest worker," Jacob said.

    Poll respondents who support enforcement-only proposals placed the candidates in a dead heat. Forty-two percent said they would vote for Jacob and 41 percent said they'll vote for Cannon. But of those favoring comprehensive immigration reform, 56 percent said they support Cannon, with 22 percent supporting Jacob.

    Jacob picked up endorsements from two national anti-illegal immigration groups Friday, including 9/11 Families for a Secure America and Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee.

    Cannon has garnered support from President Bush and received more than $58,000 in contributions from pro-immigration groups, including business political action committees whose members employ immigrants.

    JUST REMEMBER, THOSE PEOPLE ARENT RICH FOLKS, THEY ARE THE POOREST OF THE POOR, AND EVENTHOUGHT THEY DID BROKE THE LAW BY COMING HERE, AMERICAN WILL ALSO SEE THAT THOSE PEOPLE DID IT BECAUSE THEY WERE HUNGRY AND THEY WILL ALSO NOTE THAT THEY RISK THEIR LIFE TO GET THERE.

    Utah race closes to virtual dead heat
    By Charles Hurt
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES
    June 26, 2006


    SALT LAKE CITY -- Rep. Chris Cannon, the five-term Republican facing a stiff primary challenge here over his stance on immigration, has lost a comfortable lead and heads into tomorrow's primary in a statistical tie, according to the latest poll by the Salt Lake City Tribune.
    The survey of 400 voters found that 44 percent of "likely" Republican primary voters prefer the incumbent Mr. Cannon, compared with 41 percent who prefer developer and political newcomer John Jacob, who promises to crack down on illegal immigration. The three-point gap is within the poll's five-percentage-point margin of error.
    Of those who said they are "definite" about voting in the primary, Mr. Jacob netted 45 percent and Mr. Cannon netted 44 percent. Among both groups, the 15 percent of "undecideds" will determine the outcome of the race. The district is heavily Republican -- voting 77 percent for President Bush and 63 percent for Mr. Cannon in 2004 -- and whoever wins the Republican primary is expected to coast to victory in November.
    Mr. Jacob surprised Mr. Cannon by winning the May Republican convention, although his victory -- 52 percent to 48 percent -- did not get the 60 percent support needed to avert a primary. But at the time, Mr. Jacob was hardly known outside the most active Republicans who attended the convention, and the polls then had him trailing by as much as 20 points among Republican voters in general. The new poll, conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, shows that wide support for Mr. Jacob has since spread to party regulars.
    House Republicans are banking their control of the chamber in November's elections on the issue of immigration and their resistance to any plan they see as amnesty, including the bill passed by the Senate last month. Though House leaders -- along with Mr. Bush -- support the incumbent in this race, they are watching it closely, aides say, to see how the issue of immigration plays out.
    So far, the race has cost more than $1 million, according to both candidates, and it has been almost exclusively about immigration.
    Of those polled by Mason-Dixon, 91 percent said the issue was important. Among backers of Mr. Jacob, 97 percent said the issue is important and 69 percent said immigration is the primary reason they support him. And among supporters of Mr. Cannon, 64 percent said immigration is the primary reason they back him.
    While Mr. Cannon says that he opposes granting amnesty to any of the estimated 10 million to 12 million illegal aliens in the U.S., he has convinced many Republicans here that he's soft on the issue.
    Mr. Jacob's supporters point to a comment Mr. Cannon made four years ago while accepting an "Excellence in Leadership" award from the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
    "We love immigrants in Utah, and we don't oftentimes make the distinction between legal and illegal," Mr. Cannon said. "In fact, I think Utah was the first state in the country to legislate the ability to get driver's licenses based on the matricula consular and of that I am proud."
    The matricula consular is an identification card issued by the Mexican government.
    Adding to his problems, Mr. Cannon was given the award for his support of legislation to allow the children of illegal aliens to get in-state tuition rates at state colleges and universities. An earlier poll by the Tribune found that 71 percent of Utah residents want that law repealed.

    Lets make it clear:
    There are 2 polls: The Deseret Morning News poll done last week and it polls 400 people and the Dan Jones & Associates poll which was done over the weekend and it questions 617 people. According to the first one the two candidates are too close to call where as the second one gives the edge to Cannon.

    Cannon and Jacob in Challenging Battle for Congressional Seat
    June 23rd, 2006 @ 6:00pm
    Richard Piatt Reporting

    After ten years in Congress, Chris Cannon is facing his toughest challenge yet.

    Results of an exclusive Dan Jones poll for Eyewitness News and the Deseret Morning News tells the story: Political newcomer John Jacob is giving Congressman Cannon a real run for his money.

    Today, Cannon says he is confident. But he's not taking anything for granted either. In the meantime, Jacob's campaign is dealing with a few unexpected challenges.

    John Jacob is spending a lot of his day explaining comments he made to a newspaper that the devil--Satan--is behind some recent bad fortune. He's not too worried about how those comments might affect his campaign.

    John Jacob (R) Candidate For Congress: "I think the way I tried to explain it was in the last ten months I've had more adversity than I've had in the last ten years. So chalk it up to whom you'd like."

    Even before that issue broke, both Jacob and Congressman Chris Cannon were getting national media attention. Their primary race, with it's heavy focus on immigration, is widely seen as a litmus test on the issue, that could affect the debate in Congress.

    Rep. Chris Cannon (R) Utah: "He keeps saying I've flip-flopped on immigration. I'd like to see him show where I've ever changed."

    The GOP Candidates
    Utah Third District, Congress

    Rep. Chris Cannon 46%
    John Jacob 33%
    Don't Know/Refuse 22%
    +/- 4%

    But fresh poll results from Dan Jones and Associates show Jacob is giving Cannon a serious challenge.

    Among 617 Third District registered voters, Cannon is ahead by 13 per cent. But his support is not over 50 per cent--a lead Jones typically sees for an incumbent. Plus, a large number of undecided voters could leave the race up for grabs.

    High Interest

    Rep. Chris Cannon 49%
    John Jacob 39%
    Don't Know/Refuse 9%
    +/- 4%

    Of the 117 people who show a lot of interest in the race, the most likely to vote, Cannon leads by 10 points, 49- to 39 per cent. Jacob only sees opportunity here.

    John Jacob (R) Candidate For Congress: "All the polls we've done show that the incumbent is not where he needs to be to be able to win. And it depends on who votes. If we can get people out to vote, we'll win."

    Rep. Chris Cannon (R) Utah: "This is a close race. The key is, is it going to be decided by the few who get out and vote, or by a lot of people who get out and vote? I'm hoping for a lot, by the way."

    There are other factors affecting the race, too. Jacob sees The President and First Lady's Cannon endorsement is a sign Cannon is in trouble. Cannon is waiting to see how Jacobs comments about the devil--and past gambling activity--will affect public perception. There will be much more detailed information in this weekend's Deseret Morning News: Including a close look at how important the immigration issue really is to 3rd District voters.
