According to a poll done for CBS and the New York Times, a majority favor the components of the compromise immigration bill. 66% of Republicans favor the plea bargain in this compromise. In other words, two out of three Republicans are satisfied with fining the illegal immigrants and letting them stay here.
The writing is on the wall. It has wide support from a silent majority - almost a silent supermajority, one could say. So who is really out of step, the politicians, or the bloggers, columnists, and talk show hosts who are fighting this bill? If so, then it could be yet another good sign for Rudy Giuliani.
