EspañolA survey commissioned by Politico concludes that immigration reform in the United States has the support of 71 percent of the people living in areas with a disputed primary campaign in the November congressional elections. According to the survey, support for reform transcends Republican and Democrat party lines, with just 28 percent of voters opposed to changes in immigration law.

The results further reveal that 9 out of 10 Hispanic voters support immigration reform, regardless of party affiliation. Results indicate 64 percent of Republicans, 78 percent of Democrats, and 71 percent of independents support these measures.

In highly contested regions, 41 percent of those surveyed say that they would vote for the Republican candidate if the elections were held today, 34 percent would support the Democrat candidate, while 25 percent of the electorate is still undecided.

In the same vein, 73 percent of voters believe that immigration is an “important” issue to determine which candidate they will support. The survey’s questions were made available in English and Spanish to 867 likely voters between May 2 and 13, with a margin of error of approximately 4.1 percentage points.
