Yeah, so Romney and Healey's anti-immigrant-education stance hasn't been going so well lately, and now the State House News Service reports in its roundup (note to MA bloggers: sign up for this) that voters aren't buying:

On the question of in-state tuition rates for the children of illegal immigrants, respondents were asked , "Would you support or oppose legislation allowing children brought into the country illegally to pay in-state tuition rates at public colleges and universities as long as they have lived in Massachusetts for the last three years and have graduated from a state high school and have signed a sworn affidavit that they are applying for U.S. citizenship?" Exactly 54 percent said they'd support the proposal; 43 percent said they were opposed. [my emphasis]

I think the wording of the question pretty much decided how most folks would answer -- there's quite a few qualifiers there that Romney and Healey are hoping you don't notice. We got yer nuance right here...

Also get your hot fresh Schadenfreude here: Healey's approval/disapproval is 32/33, with 37% with no opinion.

"If I'm Kerry Healey, I'm seriously, seriously concerned," said [SHNS pollster] Chervinsky, who's conducted polls for media and politicians for 25 years. "She has as many people who view her unfavorably as favorably. That's horrible for an incumbent running for office. That should be 60/30."

Tom Reilly and Deval Patrick both beat her in a face-to-face. (Chin up, Patrick campaign!)
