Poll: 62% Oppose Driver’s License Bill

Edwin Garcia, San Jose Mercury News, Mar. 4

A contentious measure being pushed in the Legislature to allow undocumented immigrants to apply for driver’s licenses is opposed by more than six in 10 Californians, according to a Field Poll released today.

Sixty-two percent of those surveyed disapprove of the measure, while 35 percent are in favor.

The poll also showed a deep split between Latinos and non-Latinos: Three out of four non-Hispanic whites are opposed to the licenses, while nearly two in three Latinos are in favor; the vast majority of undocumented immigrants are from Mexico.
