Hispanics split on SB 1070

Wow: A Quinnipiac poll finds that Hispanics are split almost evenly on Arizona’s SB 1070 (the controversial anti-illegal-immigration law), 49% against and 47% in favor.

I’ve heard people claim that most Hispanics oppose illegal immigration because illegal immigrants steal their jobs, but I had trouble believing it. It was too much at odds with the picture painted by the media. But it turns out to be true, or very nearly so.

It’s a valuable reminder not to believe what the media tells you.
