Famous last words from Matthew Yglesias:
Kaus notes that near the end of their most recent polling memo (PDF) Carville & Greenberg aren't finding a ton of enthusiasm for the Senate compromise [on immigration]. It should be said, though, that the compromise with a description pulls about even. Without the description, it's horribly unpopular.
It should also be said that the Clinton health care plan of '93-'94 was actually quite popular when polled with a description that didn't mention Clinton -- and look how that turned out. The problem, of course, is that most people never hear a neutral description of controversial proposals.
Update 6/20 12:02 PM: Yglesias emails to point out that he has a "mildly unfavorable view" of the current bill; the original post title ("Yglesias grasps at straws on immigration"), which may have incorrectly suggested that he supports it, is now changed above.
