Half Of Americans Oppose Lawsuit Against Arizona

Posted by | July 9, 2010 12:49 | Filed under: Top Stories

A Gallup poll shows that half of Americans oppose the U.S. Justice Department’s lawsuit against Arizona because of its immigration law. Half of Americans are wrong.

“Emotions run high on both sides of the issue,” Gallup said. “The substantial majority of those in favor and those opposed to the lawsuit say they feel strongly about their position.”

It noted that those who followed news about the law most closely were most likely to oppose it.

Obama’s Democratic administration is seeking an injunction through the Justice Department to stop the Arizona law from going into effect on July 29, slamming it as unconstitutional, abusive and divisive.

Nearly eight in 10 Republicans (79 percent) opposed the lawsuit, while 56 percent of Democrats were in favor of the Obama administration’s decision.

Overall, 50 percent of Americans said they were against the move, compared to 33 percent in favor.
