A new poll released by Latino Decisions today shows that Latino voters would be more likely to vote for Republicans who support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

When asked which party they would be more likely to support if the GOP supported a pathway to citizenship, and Democrats did not, 63 percent of respondents said that they would vote Republican. When the positions were flipped and Democrats were in favor of a path to citizenship, 72 percent said they would support the Democratic party.

When asked which party would be most to blame if immigration reform doesn’t pass this year, the GOP received 60 percent of the vote, with 64 percent also saying that Republicans are to blame for failed efforts to address the issue over the last several years.

The poll was conducted with a sample of 100 registered Latino voters, with 61 identifying as either Democrat, Strongly Democrat, or Independent leaning Democrat, 23 identifying as either Republican, Strong Republican, or Independent leaning Republican and 6 identifying as Independent.

The survey was released one day after former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (R) announced that he is opposed to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Bush, the brother of former President George W. Bush, is commonly considered a potential presidential candidate in 2016.
