American voters want President Obama’s Homeland Security Department to closely monitor the visa issuing process of countries on the terror watch list, according to a poll conducted January 19-21 by Zogby International.

In addition, an overwhelming 80 percent majority of voters think the U.S. should revoke the visas of non-immigrants students in the country who are no longer enrolled in school.

The Zogby poll asked:

Do you agree or disagree that the Department of Homeland Security should post security officials at consular offices in countries on the terror watch list to oversee their visa issuing process?

A very strong 85 percent majority of American voters agree that the U.S. should oversee the visa issuing process in countries on the terror watch list, including 58 percent who “strongly agree.” Only 6 percent disagree.

An overwhelming 90 percent majority of Independent voters agree, and just 6 percent disagree.

The Zogby poll asked:

Do you agree or disagree that the United States should revoke the visas of all non-immigrant students in the country who are no longer enrolled in an educational institution approved by Homeland Security?

An 80 percent majority of voters agree that such visas should be revoked, including 59 percent who “strongly agree.” Only 13 percent disagree.

Among Independents, 81 percent agree with revoking the visas of all non-immigrant students in the U.S. if they are no longer enrolled in school, including 64 percent who “strongly agree.” Just 13 percent of Independents disagree.

The Zogby International poll was commissioned by The O’Leary Report newsletter. The Poll surveyed 2,377 voters January 19-21, and has a margin-of-error of plus-or-minus 2.0 percentage points.
