Most Americans think voter laws requiring photo IDs are neither unfair nor burdensome —
and a solid majority are opposed to President Barack Obama using his executive authority to enact immigration reform, a midterm election day poll shows.
"The Judicial Watch-Breitbart poll reflected an electorate strongly supportive of protecting both the integrity of the ballot box and our national sovereignty," Judicial Watch's president, Tom Fitton, declared in a statement Friday.
The election day survey,
conducted for conservative news site Breitbart and the watchdog group, finds 76 percent think the new voter ID laws are "mostly fair," while 21 percent find them "mostly unfair."
A total of 69 percent consider such laws "not a burden at all," including 45 percent of blacks and 51 percent of Hispanics, according to the survey.
The poll also found 58 percent of voters think the nation should enforce laws requiring illegal immigrants to return to their home countries, and 50 percent believe the United States should change current immigration law to slow the rate of legal immigration.
However, a majority of blacks and Hispanics think there should be changes in immigration laws to provide legal status to those in the country illegally – 57 percent and 53 percent respectively. Just 25 percent of white voters think so, the poll finds.
There was also a racial divide when respondents were asked if they agreed with President Barack Obama should use executive action to let illegal immigrants stay in the country.
Overall, 63 percent disagreed with that strategy, and 30 percent agreed; among minorities, 52 percent of blacks and 60 percent of Hispanics support executive action on immigration, the survey finds.
Election day voters weren't supportive of Obamacare, with 89 percent saying the law should be change, and 60 percent saying it should be repealed, the survey finds.
The survey, conducted by the Polling Company Inc., has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
"The new Congress has a strong mandate to pursue Obama’s abuse of power in the IRS scandal, hold him accountable for the Benghazi lies, protect our borders, close the door on amnesty, end Obamacare, confront government secrecy, and ensure the integrity of our elections," Fitton said. "This election shows that Americans want Congress to follow our lead and get Washington back under the rule of law."
