Numbers don't lie

72 percent of Latinos support Obama's immigration order

Nearly three-fourths of Latinos support President Obama's decision to circumvent Congress and spare millions of undocumented workers from deportation, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Wednesday. By comparison, 52 percent of all Americans support president Obama's action, while 44 percent oppose it.

The finding is the latest to show Latinos and, to a lesser degree, the general public rallying around the president on the issue. And that could be a warning sign for a Republican Party that has shifted to the right on immigration and is planning votes next year attacking the president's move.
