A new Gallup poll finds that 51% of Americans oppose President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty plan for illegal immigrants versus 41% who support it.
Among Hispanics, 64% said they approved of Obama’s executive amnesty plan, with 28% saying they disapprove. Among Hispanics born in America, 51% support Obama’s immigration plan, while 75% of Hispanics born in another country said they backed his executive amnesty policy.
Not surprisingly, opinions broke strongly along party lines. Among Democrats, 70% approved of Obama’s executive amnesty plan, versus 85% of Republicans who disapproved. Of concern to Democrats, the poll found that Independents disapproved of the plan by a 15-point margin.
The Gallup poll was conducted Nov. 24 through Dec. 7, 2014.
