Gallup Finds Americans Opposed to DOJ Law Suit Against Arizona

By on 7.9.10 | 11:01AM

A new Gallup poll has found that by a 50 percent to 33 percent margin, Americans oppose the Obama Justice Department's lawsuit against the Arizona immigration law. Among those who say they're following the matter very closely, the number is more lopsided -- with 64 percent opposed and just 31 percent supporting it. Independents oppose the lawsuit by a 56 percent to 27 percent margin.

Democrats are clearly hoping that the lawsuit will help boost Hispanic turnout, which could be depressed this fall because the Obama administration hasn't delivered on comprehensive immigration legislation.
