Poll: Support for Path to Citizenship for Illegals at Record Low after Obama Exec Amnesty
A record percentage of Americans polled by Quinnipiac do not want illegal immigrants to have a path to citizenship and feel illegal immigrants should be deported.
Quinnipiac found that support for a pathway to citizenship “is at its lowest level ever measured by the” independent polling outfit while the percentage of Americans who feel that “illegal immigrants should be required to leave” is “higher than this number ever has been.”
The poll, which was taken after Obama announced his executive amnesty, found that 48% of Americans believe illegal immigrants “should be allowed to stay, with a path to citizenship, down from 57 percent November 13, 2013, and the lowest this number ever has been.” Another 11% said “immigrants should be allowed to stay, but not be allowed to apply for citizenship,” and 35% felt “illegal immigrants should be required to leave the U.S., up from 26 percent 12 months ago and higher than this number ever has been.”
A plurality of Americans also disapproved of Obama’s executive amnesty—48% opposed while 45% approved.
Quinnpiac conducted the poll from November 18-23, and its margin of error is +/- 2.4 percentage points.
