  •  If they used the word "amnesty" (1+ / 0-)

    I think they get a far different response.   I would suspect that the average Republican voter doesn't know what "conditions" are implied by amnesty.  So if you told someone who responded favorably to these stipulations that they had just indicated their approval of "amnesty," they'd be shocked.  

    I'm not saying it's like a push poll in the sense that it's meant to unduly influence the voter. Rather in the sense that the language of the question in large part influences the response.
