Short version: 9 out of 10, and public trust in the Democrats to craft a proper immigration policy went through the floor.

Not precisely one of the Democrats' better months; immigration wasn't even the absolutely worse shift for them. Immigration is still of most interest here: it looks like the Democrats are on track to lose the illegal immigration debate the same way that they've lost the health care one - and, yes, that still seems weird to type out. Also: it would appear that, once again, 'government ethics' is one of those things that require constant Democratic scandals to move the needle. I think that, all things considered, I can more or less live with that for right now; which is good, because there doesn't seem to be much of an alternative.
