Poll: Immigrants Less Likely to Have Supported War

Sponsored by:

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.
