Official English Polls 85%, Reid Still Clueless

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/2006/June%20Dailies/EnglishAsNationalLanguage.htm

Rasmussen Reports has released a poll which states "Eighty-five percent (85%) of Americans believe that English should be the official language of the United States." Fifteen percent of Americans are either opposed or have no clue. This poll does not claim English-only, just that it should be the official language. This would make English the language of business, education, etc. Nowhere does it state that other languages must be abolished or forgotten.

"Making English the nation's official language is favored by 92% of Republicans, 79% of Democrats, and 86% of those not affiliated with either major political party." Talk about a bi-partisan issue. There is no reason this should not pass. With these numbers, English-only could be a Constitutional Amendment. Hmmm.

I guess Senator Light-Headed Harry Reid (D-NV) must be in that 15% considering his response when the Senate passed legislation to make English the official language. Reid considered the measure "racist" thereby making him a minority in the minority of the minority party.

Interestingly, those respondents over 40 polled in favor of English-only with 91%. That would be the group that has actually put their education into practice. Those with less life experience, under 40, polled at 78%.

Considering how accurate Rasmussen has been in the past several election cycles, I would think the liberal mantra on inclusion will have to be amended to exclude several leading language candidates.
