American attitudes toward immigration are hardening

According to a new Gallup poll, half of all Americans say immigration should be decreased - up 11 points from 39% in 2008. Some 61% of Republicans say they would like to see immigration decreased, up from 46% in 2008, compared to 46% of Democrats, up from 39%; and 44 percent of Independents, up from 37%. The poll also saw a shift in American attitudes toward whether immigration is a good or a bad thing for the country with more than a third (36%) saying it is a bad thing.
