A Washington Post poll released Tuesday showed enormous support among Republicans for a path to citizenship for undocumented workers in the country — that is, unless President Barack Obama is associated with the measure.
Seventy percent of those surveyed, including 60 percent of Republicans, said they favor a path to citizenship. But GOP support for the measure took a steep drop when the measure was linked with Obama.
With the President’s name included in the question, only 39 percent of Republicans said they support a path to citizenship. Overall support slipped to 59 percent with Obama’s name included.
