Rating President Obama on The Issues

Immigration? Obama’s Negatives Jump

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Just over half of voters now give President Obama poor marks for his handling of immigration issues, the highest level of criticism we’ve found to date.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 27% of Likely U.S. Voters now think the president is doing a good or excellent job when it comes to immigration. That’s down five points from 32% in June and his lowest positives in monthly surveying since January of last year.  Fifty-one percent (51%) rate Obama’s performance on immigration issues as poor, a seven-point jump from 44% in the previous survey and a new high. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
