When asked which party is better able to handle the immigration issue, Republicans win a plurality of 29% compared to 25% for Democrats. Back in May, Democrats led on this question, 29% - 23%. That's a 10 point flip in favor of the GOP.
On the question of whether the United States has a "moral obligation to offer asylum to people who come to the U.S. to escape violence or political persecution," only 44% said yes, while a clear majority of 53% said no.
What might be moving public opinion against the president and the media is a big jump in how serious the public now sees illegal immigration as a problem. While Obama plays golf, fundraises, drinks champagne with celebrities, and takes lavish vacations, the percentage of Americans who see illegal immigration as a "serious problem" jumped 14 points to 67%.
