63% in Connecticut want LEOs to check immigration status during lawful contact

I saw this in Ed Morrissey’s post on the Rasmussen poll results concerning Blumenthal’s poll ratings and it deserves its own post. Sixty-three percent of Connecticut residents want law enforcement officers to verify immigration status during lawful contact.

As a reminder, this was a Connecticut poll of 500 likely voters from yesterday. I’ve reached out to Ed to see if he can provide me with the exact question wording and the breakdowns since I don’t have access to the full survey

From Morrissey at Hot Air, with my emphasis in bold.

There are other interesting results from Rasmussen’s internals, and these don’t look as good for Blumenthal as the toplines do, considering the news from this week.  Ninety percent of likely voters have closely watched the news of Arizona’s new immigration-enforcement law, and a plurality wants a law like that in their state, 48/35.  Sixty-three percent want law-enforcement officers –  in Connecticut — to check immigration status during lawful contact. A 53% majority favors repeal of ObamaCare, with 44% opposing it.  Neither of these go very well with the current Democratic narratives, and those in combination with Blumenthal’s fabulism may turn into a toxic blend come November.

Update: Ed will be able to provide me with details about the question asked, but we’re not sure if we’ll be able to get it to you immediately.

    And most people in Massachusetts did not want gay marriage, bilingual education or a host of other supposedly "progressive" concepts.  The Dems in the legislature used the courts to end run the people.  Sound familiar?  Think "health care/insurance reform" or anything else the Dem majority is trying to ram down our throats (sorry, Barney!  Nothing to see here.).


    When do we start calling a duck a duck?

    I got the call from Rasmussen yesterday, the AZ issue was spread out over several questions. First they asked how closely you have been following it in the news, then if you supported the AZ law, then if you would support the same kind of law in your state.

    Contrary to the popular belief of liberals and the press (I guess that is redundant), 63% is a majority.

      If 52% of the vote was enough to hand Øbama the presidency, why isn't 63% enough to stop him from acting like a dictator.  Or is it petulant child?

    Will those same sixty-three percent of Connecticut residents please, please, please show up at the polls in 2010 and 2012? Pretty please?
