Running his mouth at what was billed as a town hall meeting in Nashville Obama expressed confidence that no future president would have the courage to undo his executive amnesty.
“It’s true a future administration might try to reverse some of our policies. But I’ll be honest with you — the American people basically have a good heart and want to treat people fairly and every survey shows that if, in fact, somebody has come out and subjected themselves to a background check, registered, paid their taxes, the American people support allowing them to stay. So any future administration that tried to punish people for doing the right thing, I think, would not have the support of the American people,” Mr. Obama told a supportive crowd at a town hall meeting in Nashville. “It’s true, theoretically, a future administration could do something that I think would be very damaging. It’s not likely, politically, that they reverse everything we’ve done.”This poll from Bloomberg suggests otherwise with only 39% of Americans approving of executive amnesty while 56% disapprove.
Conversely, a future Democratic presidential candidate such as a Hillary Clinton must run on a platform that promises more presidential overreach and to preserve amnesty and what is left of Obamacare by 2016 which is under water 52% to 38% in the RCP average? Go girl!
The poll also gave Republicans the best marks they have received since the inception of the poll in 2009. Forty-five percent of Americans approve of the Republican Party while 47 percent disapprove. The Democrats achieved a 41percent favorable rating juxtapose a 50 percent unfavorable. The poll sample was 1001 Americans. Had the sample been composed of registered or likely voters disapproval of Obama's amnesty would have been more pronounced.
