I just saw this poll from Americans United for Change: Virginia 7th Congressional District Survey Results . [PDF}
I am a big fan of VDARE.com and donate when I can afford it. (I am just a student, though.) I would like to know how you would square the interpretation of Coulter et al. that Cantor was defeated because of Amnesty with the results from this poll. I tried to spot it myself but couldn’t.
I found the poll reading this article a friend suggested I look when I mentioned Cantor was defeated on the issue of immigration reform: Immigration reform supported in Cantor’s district, poll suggests, By Steve Goldstein, Marketwatch, June 15, 2014
James Fulford writes: The short answer is that the polls are wrong–what we call “pollaganda.” Peter Brimelow keeps asking “If the polls were right, why haven’t they passed Amnesty/ Immigration Surge already?”
I wrote an article called Pollaganda on Obamnesty: If MSM Asks The Right Questions, It Polls Well, Otherwise Not,on June 20, 2012. This poll’s question is an example of that, here it is in all its glory:
There is bipartisan immigration reform legislation being debated in Washington. The bill would secure our borders, block employers from hiring undocumented immigrants, and make sure that undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. with no criminal record register for legal status. If a long list of requirements is met over more than a decade, it provides eligibility for a path to citizenship. Would you support or oppose this proposal?
I might almost support that bill myself, but it’s a total fantasy.
