RUNNING ON HATE IN A COUNTRY THAT DOESN'T:

Americans see immigrants more favorably than do Trump, Cruz (Cathy Lynn Grossman   | March 29, 2016, religion News Service)

PPRI found that 50 percent of Americans have a favorable view of newcomers from other countries, saying they strengthen U.S. society rather than threaten "traditional American customs and values" (34 percent). [...]

The general public in every state except South Dakota favors an immigration reform policy that includes a path to citizenship, the study finds.

62 percent -- including most Democrats and Republicans -- say it should be allowed if immigrants meet certain requirements.
19 percent want to see undocumented immigrants identified and deported.
15 percent say they should get legal residency but not citizenship.
