In an NBC/WSJ poll, conducted between November 14-17, about the President taking action and granting amnesty, the results are not good for democrats. The overall numbers show half of the country, at least, is not in favor of such actions by a margin of 48% against to 38% for it.
It gets even worse as one breaks down the numbers. Latinos only favor amnesty by a slim margin, of 43% to 37%. This is not the minority, block group voting that democrats were expecting to find.
