| by Edward Arnold

According to a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, nearly half of Americans disapprove of President Obama's taking executive action on immigration.

48 percent oppose, while 38 percent support it, leaving 14 percent unsure.

The poll is released as the President is expected to announce his plans to sign an executive order granting amnesty to as many as 5 million illegal migrants.

He will announce tonight at 8pm (EST).

Also in the poll, some 56% believe Congress should take the lead in setting policy for the country with over 60% wanting it done through compromises and not campaign positions.

When asked about what issues are most important, the poll showed the most support for Congress to take action on lowering student loan costs, increase road and highway projects, and raising the minimum wage.
