Most Americans have unfavorable image of anti-Arizona marchers

Activists Across U.S. March For Immigration Reform
The public continues to be on the side of the Arizona illegal immigration law and not on the side of its vocal supporters.

Following weekend protests against the new Arizona law cracking down on
illegal immigration, support for the Arizona policy remains unchanged.

However, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that
only 25% have a favorable view of those who marched and protested for
immigrant rights in major cities. Fifty percent (50%) hold an
unfavorable opinion and another 26% are not sure.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters still favor legislation like
Arizona's that authorizes local police to stop and verify the
immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant.
Thirty-two percent (32%) oppose such a law. Those figures are virtually
unchanged from a week ago.

Actually, I don't share the public's unfavorable impressions of the demonstrators. This is America, and demonstrate is what we do.
