Swing-state Dems who support amnesty proposal in budget bill could face voter backlash: Poll 

Senate Democrats are facing increased pressure to support the party’s lofty budget proposal.

According to a new poll, however, support for one of the most polarizing provisions could spell political trouble among moderate Democrats representing largely Republican states.

Polls reveal clear trend

As Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard explained in a piece this week, an immigration-related proposal tucked inside the budget bill would provide amnesty and a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants and would turn off a large number of voters.

He pointed to a tweet from Bloomberg’s Steven Dennis that confirmed Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) supports the proposal even at the expense of support from many of his constituents.

Fox News reported that U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) touted the perceived benefits of the amnesty provision, though Bedard noted that many ordinary Americans are notably less enthusiastic.

For his part, Manchin is not up for re-election in next year’s midterms. Democratic colleagues in Arizona, Georgia, New Hampshire, and Nevada are, however, and Zogby pollsters found that most voters would be “less likely” to favor a candidate who supports amnesty.

In Nevada, 47% of respondents said they would be less likely to support Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto in her re-election bid if she supports the measure, compared to just 28% who said they would be more likely to vote for her.

“Reckless policies”

Similar results were evident among respondents in Georgia, Arizona, and New Hampshire in connection with the re-election bids of Democratic Sens. Raphael Warnock, Mark Kelly, and Jeanne Shaheen, respectively.

Meanwhile, Manchin could pay an electoral price in 2024, as 55% of those polled in his state signaled a reduced willingness to support him if he supports the amnesty measure.

Daniel Stein, who serves as the president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, cautioned Democrats not to ignore the results of the Zogby survey.

“The reckless policies of the Biden administration have created an unprecedented illegal immigration crisis,” he said.

Stein went on to argue that voters across much of the U.S. have made it clear that senators who submit to “pressure from open borders radicals” and resort to “legislative trickery to gain amnesty for millions of illegal aliens” do so at their own “political peril.”
