Obama and Romney Battle Over Immigration But Poll Shows Voters Don't Care as Much as They Used ToPublished: Sep 25, 2012 3:30 pm By: JORDAN FABIAN
"Forty-one percent of registered voters consider immigration "very important" to their vote in November, the lowest of twelve issues tested by the Pew Research Center (the economy and jobs are number one). That number is down 11 percentage points from 2008.
President Obama's supporters (36 percent) and "swing" voters (39 percent) are less likely to see immigration as very important compared to Romney supporters (47 percent). But among Republicans, the fervor over the issue has significantly died down compared to four years ago; 61 percent said it was very important to their vote. Forty-six percent of GOPers say the same today."
