When the Narrative becomes Fact, Print the Narrative! Washington Post‘s Rosalind S. Helderman tells her readers that Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law, S.B. 1070, is “deeply unpopular with Latino voters.”  Really? A very recent Quinnipiac poll found that 49% of Hispanics oppose the law, but 47% approve of it.  If thats “deeply unpopular” I wouldn’t want to be President Obama. … A similarly slim majority of Hispanics actually wants the Supreme Court to uphold S.B. 1070. …

In general, the Arizona law has actually been getting more popular in recent months. A 68-27 majority of all the nation’s voters now approves it, according to Quinnipiac.  How much more lopsided does public opinion have to get before the national Dems quietly drop the S.B. 1070 issue? Not much more lopsided, you’d think. …

P.S.: Don’t blame Helderman. It’s often hard to recognize facts that disrupt an ingrained narrative (i.e. what was formerly known as “news”). …
