Laughable Amnesty Polling, Politico Edition

They just keep coming. Politico has a story on its own poll crowing that "GOP voters back immigration reform." They asked "likely voters in competitive U.S. House and Senate races" questions on a variety of issues, including this one: "Do you support or oppose comprehensive immigration reform?"

They had allied themselves with the ruling Congress Party (of the Nehru/Gandhi family), which lost heavily to the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party.
