Sipa USA / Douliery Olivier

When pollsters attached Obama's name to the immigration action, 54 percent of Americans supported it, and opposition grew to 62 percent among Republicans.

As for Democrats, their support for Obama's immigration plan increased when told he was behind it, from 78 percent when he was not mentioned to 80 percent when he was.

The online poll, which as a sample size of 1,200 people, was conducted the week after the Supreme Court took up a case earlier this month challenging the President's immigration actions.
