Poll: Immigrants Less Likely to Have Supported War

Immigrants are more likely to fear the consequences of the war in Iraq than the broader public, and less likely to have backed it in the first place. That´s according to a national poll released today for New California Media.

Immigrants´ opinions differed based on their region of origin, but they appeared more ambivalent than the country at large about the war. While 61% of respondents from Asian countries said they supported the war, only 44% of Middle Easterners and 50% of Latin Americans said the same.

Those findings contrast with other recent polls that found about 75% of the public supported the war.

The poll was conducted in 11 languages. It surveyed 1,000 immigrants during April.
