Supplementary notes
During the survey, the question was posed as follows: "Do you think immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally and meet the requirements should: 'not be allowed to stay in the country legally', 'be a way for those who meet certain requirements to be able to apply for U.S. citizenship, or permanent residency, but not U.S. citizenship'."
Figures may not add to 100 percent because of rounding.
