Among nonwhites in this poll, blacks and Hispanics have similar preferences on immigration levels, with 67% of blacks and 68% of Hispanics in favor of maintaining or increasing immigration. Historically, though, Hispanics have been more likely to hold these views.

Even Republicans, independents, and Democrats are far from homogenous in their views toward immigration, as each group contains sizable segments on all sides of the immigration question.

However, at 46%, Republicans lean more heavily than the other parties toward favoring a decrease in immigration, and are alone in showing plurality support for this view. By contrast, roughly equal proportions of Democrats favor an increase or a decrease, and the 29% favoring an increase is the largest of any party group.
