Pew Poll confirms most illegal immigrants favor Democrat party by nearly 3-to-1

Illegal immigrants strongly favor the Democrat Party, according to a new Pew poll, a finding that suggests the illegal immigration form plan could hurt the Republican Party.

According to data from the Pew Research Center released Monday, Hispanic illegal immigrants identified themselves as Democrats 54 percent to 19 percent, when those who leaned toward either party were included.

In Pew’s 2012 National Survey of Latinos, 31 percent of illegal immigrants described themselves as Democrats, while only four percent said they were Republicans.

Thirty-three percent said that they are politically independent, 16 percent said they prefer another political party, and 15 percent said they either didn’t know or refused to answer the question altogether.

The longer Hispanic immigrants are in the United States, the number of immigrants that identify with a political party increases. Thirty-eight percent of those who have been here fewer than 15 years identified with a party, while 63 percent of those who have been here more than 15 years do so.

Pew notes that in the 2012 presidential election 71 percent of Latino voters supported the Democrat candidate, President Barack Obama, and only 27 percent supported Republican Mitt Romney. 

By contrast, in the 2004 election, John Kerry earned 58 percent of the Hispanic votes, and George W. Bush earned 40 percent.
