A plurality of Americans say President Barack Obama should hold off on any executive action on immigration, according to a poll USA Today released Monday.
The poll found that 46 percent of Americans say the president should wait for Congress, with its incoming Republican majority, to address immigration reform. Forty-two percent say the president should take action on his own.
Respondents also offered their views on a pair of issues related to the environment, with Keystone XL pipeline construction and the climate deal the president struck with China each receiving at least 60 percent support.
The poll was conducted by Princeton Survey Research and reached 1,000 people by phone Nov. 13-16 with a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
