Pew Poll: Half of Americans Oppose Obama Exec Amnesty

Pew Poll: Half of Americans Oppose Obama Exec Amnesty

Half of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, while 56% disapprove of his handling of immigration. 

A new Pew poll found that 46% support Obama’s executive amnesty and 38% approve of his handling of immigration. 

There were stark differences between Republicans and Democrats and whites and Hispanics. While 82% of Republicans disapproved of Obama’s executive amnesty, 71% of Democrats approved. Eighty-one percent of Hispanics supported Obama’s executive amnesty, while only 34% of whites approved.

The poll also found that Obama’s “executive action on immigration draws more intense opposition (39% disapprove very strongly) than intense support (30% approve very strongly),” while “about two-thirds of the public say they are ‘very sympathetic’ (23%) or ‘somewhat sympathetic’ (42%)” toward “immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally.”

The poll was conducted December 3-7.
