Raleigh, N.C. – 53% of Florida voters support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, compared to 31% of voters who are opposed to it. There's a bipartisan consensus on the issue with independents (58/25), Democrats (57/30), and Republicans (45/35) all supportive of reform.
Marco Rubio's been a leading voice on the immigration issue recently. 31% of voters say they support his stance on immigration while 27% disagree and 42% aren't sure either way. What's interesting within the crosstabs is that 28% of voters who say they support his position on immigration actually oppose a path to citizenship. And 65% of voters who say they oppose his position actually support a path to citizenship. Those numbers suggest a lot of people on both sides are reacting more to his party label than his actual position on the issue when assessing their opinion of Rubio's view.
We also asked voters their opinion about Jeb Bush's stance on a path to citizenship...but 57% of voters said they're not sure what it is.
