    Local Miami Television News Poll Shows Vast Majority Agree With Tancredo Miami "Third World Country" Comments

    Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colorado, recently outraged Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Miami politicians and business leaders by pointing to Miami as an example of what he calls uncontrolled immigration. World Net Daily quotes Tancredo as saying, "Look at what has happened to Miami. It has become a third world country. You just pick it up and take it and move it someplace, you would never know you're in the United States of America."

    Florida elected officials and business leaders predictably reacted to these comments with righteous indignation and passionate defenses of Miami as a vibrant, multi-ethnic, diverse, but nevertheless "All-American," community.

    The local NBC affiliate conducted a non-scientific poll in which it asked viewers what they thought of Tancredo's comments. In what appears to be a remarkable disconnect between the expressed views of the politicians and business leaders and the views of ordinary citizens, 78% of those responding to the poll said they agree with Tancredo, 14% said Tancredo's comments are ridiculous, and 8% allowed that Tancredo is entitled to his opinion.
