Few Think States Should Be Able to Ignore Federal Laws

California is on the brink of declaring itself a sanctuary state which would shield illegal immigrants from federal immigration authorities. But most voters don’t think states should have the right to go against the federal government.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 23% of Likely U.S. Voters think that, generally speaking, states and localities should have the right to ignore federal laws that they don’t agree with. Most (62%) disagree, but 15% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 2-3, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
