Agreeing with your neighbor on hot-button issues can be tough–particularly these days. But Americans, from across the political spectrum, are united in support for welcoming more skilled workers from overseas to the United States. That’s according to a new survey of over 2,000 registered voters from the Economic Innovation Group (EIG), a public policy organization based in Washington D.C. Seven in 10 voters surveyed support increasing the number of skilled immigrants, defined as those with a high level of educational achievement or specialized professional skills. Additionally, three-quarters of voters responded favorably when increasing skilled immigration was linked to promoting economic growth and creating jobs for workers.
