Poll: Majority Of Voters Agree With Obama’s Immigration Move

Poll: Majority Of Voters Agree With Obama’s Immigration Move

A majority of voters agreed with President Obama’s decision to halt deportation of young undocumented immigrants, according to a new Bloomberg Poll out Tuesday. The President made a popular move with his announcement last Friday, with 64 percent of likely voters agreeing with the new policy, while just 30 percent disagreed.

Along party lines, only Republicans disagreed the move, with 56 percent of likely GOP voters opposed to the policy. Close to 9 in 10 Democrats (86 percent) liked the move. A large majority of independents, 66 percent, backed the decision, while just 26 percent opposed it.

Thus far, the new rule has been a political win for the president, while Mitt Romney – who has refused to say whether or not he would repeal the executive action if elected – is caught between his right-wing base and alienating Latino voters. Yesterday, a Latino Decisions poll showed that enthusiasm for Obama among Latino voters jumped significantly after the announcement.

The Bloomberg poll surveyed 734 likely voters and had a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percent.

4. Latest has it Romney is now bashing Obama for this move. At least he's taken a position,

but the magic Etch a Sketch won't help him win over the majority who favor this move.

He's doomed.
