Data in WSJ Best of the Web Column polling data was featured in the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web column today.

The column explores whether or not the Democratic presidential candidates are moving too far to the left.

“Today pollster Scott Rasmussen shares results suggesting Democrats may not want to fall so hard for illegal immigration:”

Twenty-one percent (21%) of voters nationwide believe the United States has no right to decide who is eligible to enter the country. They believe anyone who wants to live in the United States should be allowed entry. However, 79% disagree and take the opposite view.

This is consistent with a vast collection of survey data showing that eight-out-of-ten voters believe illegal immigration is bad for the United States (eight-out-of-ten also believe that legal immigration is good for the country).
