A poll of voters commissioned by the International Dairy Foods Association shows strong support for reforming immigration policy as a way to help control food prices.  Almost 90% of Democrat voters, and 79% of Republican voters support the idea of immigration reform.  When asked about the price of food, it was an almost unanimous 94% who said that rising food prices are a problem in America.


It turns out that over 40% of the voters see a connection between immigration issues and rising food costs.


Democrat and Republican voters aren’t aligned in connecting immigration issues with rising food costs.  Over half of Republican voters say they’re connected while only one-third of Democrats do.  Over half of the voters, including 55% of Democrats and 58% of Republicans, support Congress passing substantial immigration reform.


Older voters, post-graduate voters, and urban voters are the most supportive of reform.
