, among other things, that 56% of American voters think the US is a fundamentally "fair and decent" society. Furthermore, most Americans think that "those who move here need to adopt the prevailing culture." While 59% of the 1,000 likely voters reached support a "welcoming" immigration policy, 53% also favor automatic verification of immigration status during routine traffic stops.
"Over half of voters still think police officers should automatically check someone's immigration status if they pull them over," writes Rasmussen, which notes that this figure is actually the lowest to date.
