The poll also showed that American voters 48 to 45 percent oppose birthright citizenship for the children of illegal aliens who are born on U.S. soil.
A total of 1,905 voters were interviewed for the poll, which was conducted Aug. 31 – Sept. 7. Among the number of voters who disapprove (60 to 28 percent) of Obama’s handling of illegal immigration, the data were higher for Republicans, with an 88 to six percent disapproval rating and for Independents, 66 to 20 percent disapproval.
On the flip side, Democratic voters, 54 to 32 percent, said they agree with the way Obama is handling illegal immigration, and those voters who identified as liberals concurred, with a 54 to 29 percent approval rating.
