    This is so simple. They would credit Obama. We have nothing to gain by aiding the Dems in making the dreams of their new voting bloc come true.

  2. Gerry Owen on November 14, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    OBAMA!
    OBAMA!

    Wait… whyse we comin here, no worrk! ecenomically SHEET!!!!!

    Why isn’t Ron Paul shown as an option on this poll?

    It was the paulbots who, just like blacks, allowed themselves to be exploited and keep 0bacca in power to preserve the status quo – and move the nation closer to a dictatorship without any personal liberties.

    The illegals really should thank the paulbots if they wanted to give credit to the group most responsible for preserving the marxist status quo.

    Hey, at least the left will now have a brand new group to start brainwashing as “poor victims”. The blacks and the paulbots cannot be brainwashed any further in this regard; both groups will be ‘poor victims’ for the rest of their lives and both will keep allowing themselves to be exploited so that the dictator’s status quo is safely preserved.

        Keep playing the “poor victims”, just like your angry black liberal soulmates

        Keep getting exploited and keep letting the dem’s use you paulbots as their own personal Ross-Perot voting block. Keep being the angry victims like your black soulmates – and watch every single one of your personal freedoms go away.

        YOU paulbots are the ones keeping the status quo, and you know it.

        Truth hurts.

      I agree with what the PC version of me said.

      • Anonymous Paulbot on November 16, 2012 at 8:48 pm

        I may be the PC version of you — but I charge the paulbot FOOLS with 0bama’s second term – it is 100% their fault, the paulbots could have changed the country to one that grants power to the states and one that reduces the federal powers — but the paulbots were too stuck on stupid and now they’ve invited 0bama to be their new master and overlord.

        FUCK THE BLIND PAULBOTS — THEY ARE TO BLAME FOR OBAMA STAYING IN POWER!!!

        FUCK THE PAULBOTS UP THE ASS!!!!!!!

    Go Poli! Please, PLEASE keep blogging!

    Your website expounds precisely the bilgewater that turns voters away from the GOP! You give a forum to exactly the fringe nutters that turn away voters!

    You want a permanent minority GOP? Then keep up the good work!

    • Setnaffa on November 15, 2012 at 5:20 am

      Yeah, instead we should join with the worshipers of the false messiah in all 57 states…

      What turns voters away from the GOP are (1) lies in the MSM compounded with (2) voter intimidation, (3) patrimony, (4) lame establishment RINOs and Democrat-lite policies, and (5) assistance from paid internet trolls like you.

      We’ll see what happens. If the USA chooses to reject common sense, we all suffer; but keep on looting… We’ll get to you eventually…

        Finally, some sense, the Georgia GOP is taking up the issue of Agenda 21 Delphi!

        This is good news.

      • allie on November 15, 2012 at 6:32 am

        You are absolutely right. By joining the dems and their policy for immigration, both legal and illegal, the republicans will only be giving the democrats more democrat voters who want free stuff. What kind of war will we have when the free stuff stops because no one will work to provide it? Scary thought.

        • James on November 15, 2012 at 6:52 am

          The problem with the “free stuff” argument is that a good percentage of the so-called 53% vote Dem and a good percentage of the so-called 47% vote GOP. The Red States are reliably the most poor, least educated, and most differential recipients of Federal aid.

          The term “Red State Welfare” is, unfortunately, based upon solid math.

          • Setnaffa on November 15, 2012 at 10:00 am

            Bovine Scatology. Your stats are made up. Your math is apparently not based on where the country will be when the rich move out and the workers decide to shrug…

          • James on November 15, 2012 at 10:53 am

            Unfortunately, setnaffa, the numbers don’t lie, the red states are the biggest moochers:

          • rightwingyahoo on November 15, 2012 at 4:56 pm

            For now. Give it another 20 years and take another look….

            The blue states used to be more free and many businesses were founded therein. Their populations were large and growing.

            Now, its different, and the blue states are losing people to the red states.

            Soon, as the blue states become more and more socialist, and the red states, which used to be farmland and wilderness, develop, those numbers will swap.

            Soon. You’re not wrong now, but the trend is in the direction that will make you wrong in just a few more years.

          • Budahmon on November 15, 2012 at 5:21 pm

            Ahh….Another person who cannot read. The problem with your post and link is that we are talking returns. There are a lot of problems using this as a reference. You are not taking into account the type of returns, or the fact that some people deliberately increase W-2 forms so they pay at the end of the year, while others would like to get a return. These are returns and they are indicative of a lot of factors. One thing they are not indicative of is recipients of federal aid. I for one choose to pay….I keep more of my money and refuse to give the government a interest free loan. Many hard working people see it as a way to save money….yet you call them a freeloader because they overpaid on their return.

            I do not think your chart means what you think it means.

      • James on November 15, 2012 at 6:37 pm

        “worshipers of the messiah in all 57 states”

        This comment illiustrates perfectly why the GOP lost the 2012 election. They chose to cartoon the President as a “messiah”‘, whereas Obama voters did not view him as such. They chose to believe that Obama does not know how many states are in the USA, even though he was born in the 50th state. Voters of Obama knew it was a misspoke. The right wing nutters chose to believe a myth. Setnaffa chooses to believe many, many myths.

        Choose to swallow the memes fed to you by the right wing entertainment industry, at the peril of the GOP future.

    Polipundit: Who would Hispanics credit for amnesty?

    So? Immigration reform should be based on what is the right thing to do, not because it gains or loses Republicans a few votes.

    • Setnaffa on November 15, 2012 at 5:30 am

      The right thing to do is treat everyone the same under the law.

      If you break the law, you should not be rewarded; we should not be giving free citizenship, free education, free healthcare, etc. to those who essentially are commiting numerous felonies including ID Theft, SS Fraud, Conspiracy to violate US Immigration laws, driving without insurance, and so on. Regardless of race, creed, color, etc.

      The right thing to do is to stop giving them rewards for cutting in line in front of those who follow the rules.

      The right thing to do is to punish the employers who hire illegals. Put them out of business. Confiscate their illegitimate gains and use them to fund enforcement like we do with drug money.

      The right thing to do is to defend the country against terrorists slipping across the border with weapons and plans to hurt our friends and neighbors. Why isn’t that damned fence built? Those stopping it are terrorist sympathizers.

      The right thing to do is to punish the guilty and reward those who obey the law. Right now we have that backwards.

      • Zachriel on November 15, 2012 at 4:20 pm

        Setnaffa: If you break the law, you should not be rewarded

        No. Not sure that immigrants are being given such big advantages.

        Setnaffa: The right thing to do is to stop giving them rewards for cutting in line in front of those who follow the rules.

        Why not simply liberalize immigration? By bringing immigrants into the open, it reduces the security threat.

        • rightwingyahoo on November 15, 2012 at 4:51 pm

          Because they are unskilled, use more resources than they contribute, vote Scumocrat, and think the country is theirs for the taking.

          Also, because there are 20 million Americans looking for work, or more work than they’ve got now.

          I don’t expect any of that to mean much to you, but to most of the middle class, it means a bit more.

        • Budahmon on November 15, 2012 at 5:33 pm

          By introducing an underclass into society with limited education and skills it increases the criminal element, degrades health of all our citiens, adds to the burden of taxpayers throughout the Unites States and reduces the value of Citienship to being able to jump across border…

          • Anonymous Paulbot on November 16, 2012 at 8:53 pm

            You can thank the fucking paulbot retards for that one Budahmon!

            Only the blind, deaf and dumb paulbots could be so foolish as to believe in such absurd stupidity. Fucking idiots — all of them!

          rightwingyahoo: Also, because there are 20 million Americans looking for work, or more work than they’ve got now.

          That would be a matter of markets. Immigration largely correlates with job opportunity.

          You don’t like those kind of people. In any case, we were addressing Setnaffa’s argument concerning the illegality of much of current immigration.

  6. Eric W. on November 15, 2012 at 7:48 am

    Ronald Reagan ironically sealed California becoming a Democratic state with the 1986 amnesty. People forget that California voted Republican in every election save 1964,from 52-88. Or that as late as 1992 and 94,Republicans almost won senate seats. But by the late 90s,as the illegals came of age,California had become a Democrat lock.

    • Setnaffa on November 15, 2012 at 9:57 am

      Bovine Scatology. The people in California made their own bed.

    • rightwingyahoo on November 15, 2012 at 5:04 pm

      Eric, that is correct. Reagan was a liberal fool on immigration and it punched the hole in the USA that will slowly sink us, just as the Titanic’s iceberg punched a small hole that eventually sank it.

      Ironic that Reagan who honestly loved America more than himself, was so easily fooled on immigration, and tragic that Bush 43, who was so pompous and arrogantly Anti-American that he boasted of Latino culture overrunning American culture, did so much to sink us that we almost didn’t need the Democrats’ help.

      Now that the Scumocrats are in charge, they will finish off what’s left of us.

      Reagan’s two biggest mistakes (signing an amnesty and selecting Bush as his running mate) will end up destroying the country.

      Awful, since he did so much more to save it. But where it counted most, he failed.

  7. Rational on November 15, 2012 at 7:59 am

    For republicans, amnesty is a no-win issue.
    If republican goes along with amnesty, Hispanics would still not give republican credits as they perceive republican is forced to go along by democrats;
    If republican continues the current stance against amnesty, what worse it can make? At least, it can reduce a large amount potential democrats voter pool.
    So, at the end, republican should stick with current anti-amnesty stance.

    Republican do have opportunity to improve their image on immigration. They should adopt a strategy to separate legal immigration with illegal immigration. They should promote legal immigration for educated professionals from other countries, especially non-Hispanics ones. As we know, educated immigrants not only are good for the country, they tend to be more likely successful and enter middle or upper-middle class as well. Most importantly, middle or upper-middle class tend to vote for republican.

    • Setnaffa on November 15, 2012 at 9:58 am

      Benefits for those who follow the law. Penalties for those who don’t. But the Democrats have the White House and the Senate. The GOP can’t do anything but resist or become irrelevant.

    • rightwingyahoo on November 15, 2012 at 5:11 pm

      Very good post. Let our immigration policy BENEFIT us, rather than HINDER, which it has done for 40 years now…

  8. IP727 on November 15, 2012 at 10:00 am

    As we know, educated immigrants not only are good for the country, they tend to be more likely successful and enter middle or upper-middle class as well. Most importantly, middle or upper-middle class tend to vote for republican.

    That group is outnumberd by the bottom 2/3 that have their hand out.
    The most we can expect is 35% for the GOP~~~~~65% for the dems.

    • bc3b on November 15, 2012 at 1:08 pm

      I am willing to bet that the new illegals will vote for Dems in even higher numbers – approaching 90%.

      • IP727 on November 15, 2012 at 1:58 pm

        I was being optomistic. :grin:

        • James on November 15, 2012 at 6:38 pm

  9. Kamimeni on November 15, 2012 at 11:12 am

    They should credit Polipundit for supporting a candidate who lost so badly that everyone said amnesty is the only solution. Perhaps that was the plan all along of Rove and Co. Upset at the failure of comprehensive immigration reform under Pres Bush, they run up a candidate who is very effective and have him run on a hard anti-amnesty platform as his only conservative position, then lose the election, so that Republicans will stop opposing amnesty.

    • Karl__Rove on November 15, 2012 at 1:47 pm

      Shhhhhh! I’ve already given directives to GOP leaders to allow amnesty to pass. My company, American Crossroads, and its sponsors are set to profit handsomely when it does so, thereby increasing our power and influence. “Legal” American citizens — BE DAMNED!

  10. bc3b on November 15, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    In 1988, after the Republican Senate majority voted to approve amnesty (and Ronald Reagan signed the bill), Hispanics gave Michael Dukakis – yes, that Michael Dukakis – a larger percentage than the majorities they gave Walter Mondale in 1984 and Jimmy Carter in 1980 and 1976.

    • Anonymous Paulbot on November 16, 2012 at 8:31 pm

      Maybe you should go take a look at the Michael Dukakis electoral map, idiot.

  11. bobo on November 15, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    It would appear that this poll has been skewed in favor of Obama. I predict A GOP victory!
