The Paragon Insights poll gives cautious GOP senators an armory of darts in their pending effort to pin Democrats to Obama’s unpopular amnesty policy.

Voters will side with the GOP if they fight President Obama’s effort to print work permits for millions of migrant workers, according to a new poll.
The large poll shows that 47 percent of the 1,593 respondents approve of Obama’s overall performance — but also shows lopsided opposition to his amnesty among the critical independent voters and lower-income voters that the GOP needs to persuade and turn out in 2016.
Just 19 percent of 691 people who earn less than $50,000 a year strongly support Obama’s amnesty move, while 40 percent strongly oppose. One in six of 693 blue-collar respondents, or 15 percent, strongly supported Obama’s decision, while 47 percent strongly opposed it.
