A new Rasmussen Reports phone and online survey shows 78 percent of likely voters in West Virginia believe the state should mandate all employers use E-Verify to ensure only legal workers are hired for American jobs.

Only 12 percent of those voters oppose mandating E-Verify while 10 percent are unsure.

The West Virginia House of Representatives passed a bill last month requiring businesses with 15 or more employees to use E-Verify. The bill is awaiting its verdict in the West Virginia Senate.

Support for the measure is not dependent upon party affiliation. Eighty-two percent of Republicans, 80 percent of unaffiliated voters and 70 percent of Democrats are supportive of the requirement.

Nationally, sixty-nine percent of likely voters support using E-Verify.
