A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters feel that employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants are a bigger problem than the illegals who are seeking a job. Just 17% say the illegal immigrants seeking a job are the bigger problem. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The May results mark the sixth time in the past seven months that there have been more Republicans than Democrats in the nation. April’s numbers represented the lowest number of Democrats ever recorded in Rasmussen Reports tracking since November 2002. See the History of Party Trends from January 2004 to the present.
Rasmussen Reports tracks this information based on telephone interviews with approximately 15,000 adults per month and has been doing so since November 2002. The margin of error for the full sample is less than one percentage point, with a 95% level of confidence.
