The blue tide


Kos has a good roundup of Democratic gains just about everywhere nationwide in Tuesday elections. (Yes, I know, a Republican was elected mayor of Indianapolis.) Interestingly, Republican efforts to stir an anti-immigrant furor fell flat. This is not too surprising given a summaryI saw earlier today of national polling. You name the polling outfit -- from Fox to Gallup and every other big name in between -- a solid majority of Americans favor something akin to amnesty -- forgiveness, a path to citizenship, etc. -- for immigrants already in the country leading productive lives and they also realize mass deportation is unrealistic. Here's a polling roundup on these and other immigration questions. (People clearly still need some educating about the wisdom of giving driver's licenses that are not proof of citizenship to immigrants so they can get insurance and also as a means of identifying their presence here.)
