Immigration is now an issue in America

In The near term future of European politics, I linked to a Swedish political ad that painted immigration in terms of us and them.

In Sweden, a party can win by capturing a slice of the electorate because it is not a winner take all system like the U.S. Catching the social mood early can deliver big payoffs for candidates in ways that could be costly in the U.S. if done too early. We'll find out whether Sharron Angle's recent ad pays off in her run against Harry Reid for U.S. Senator from Nevada.
