Politico/Morning Consult released a poll today showing that only 30% of registered American voters believe that H-1B workers fill jobs Americans are not able to perform. 44% said that H-1B visa holders definitely fill job opportunities that Americans could do.
The poll was conducted from February 24-26, 2017 with a sample of 2,000 registered voters.
Other key findings of the poll:
- A plurality of registered voters said that the U.S. should not allow more low-skilled immigrants into the country.
- Americans were split on whether current immigration levels strengthened the economy or are a burden on taxpayers because of immigrant’s reliance on welfare programs.
- 45% said they trusted Republicans to handle immigration issues over the 36% that said Democrat.
