EdnaThis week Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny met with President Barack Obama at the White House for the annual St. Patrick's Day event. Obama praised Kenny's "great leadership during the difficult times" and noted the "progress in the Irish economy," while the Taoiseach admitted there is "still a long way to go on the journey to national recovery... but confidence is returning."


Kenny certainly knows something about this road to recovery: In 2011, he took over an economy with nearly 15% unemployment, and public debt estimated at over 105% of GDP. Yet today, Kenny's governing party, Fine Gael, remains the most popular party in Ireland and the island has seen no major protests on the scale experienced elsewhere in Europe against massive cuts and new taxes.


Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, in conjunction with American Viewpoint, conducted this survey on behalf of the University of Southern California Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and the Los Angeles Times. The latest poll shows:



  • Across age, race and political party, broad support in CA for immigration plan that includes path to citizenship
  • Most Californians favor citizenship path for illegal immigrants
  • California Voters Not Supportive of New Taxes
  • California voters split on Jerry Brown school plans
  • Lawmakers get higher marks, but support remains lax
  • Californians Overwhelmingly Support Gun Control Measures
  • Californians show strong support for strict gun control measures
  • Californians still anxious about economy, poll shows

smallstanheadRead Stan Greenberg’s Op-Ed in Financial Times today.  Stan argues that conservatives are caught between the left and right on immigration.

Republicans in the US had not finished grieving over their election loss before they began to debate their party’s hardline stance on immigration Before the defeat, conservative governors had competed to make life miserable for illegal immigrants and harder for their legal compatriots to vote. Mitt Romney, the unsuccessful Republican nominee for president, had called on illegal immigrants to “self-deport”. Little wonder, then, that Barack Obama won 71 per cent of Latino and 75 per cent of Asian voters.


Suddenly, after the vote, serious Republicans announced they could live with comprehensive immigration reform that included a path to full US citizenship. Some Christian conservatives came out in support, too. Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, reminded his supporters that “Both David’s palace and Solomon’s temple were built with skilled artisans from Lebanon and elsewhere”.


This repositioning will not be pretty.
