The Helena IR polls its readers on the immigration bill

Anyone who wonders why Sens. Baucus and Tester were exceeded in their zeal to oppose the recently defeated comprehensive immigration bill only by a couple of the most conservative Republican Senators need only look at the unscientific poll of Helena IR readers, where 80% of readers who responded opposed that bill.

One suspects that their mail and their switchboards were telling them the same impressive numbers, even taking into account the unscientific nature of such polls.

Incidentally, the wording of the question, "whether the U.S. Senate was right to kill the president’s immigration plan," shows how successful Democrats were in defining a bill that was largely crafted in Sen. Kennedy's offices as "the President's bill."
