The president’s most unpopular stance, according to the poll, is on immigration. Obama announced executive actions late last year that would protect some 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation -- a move that angered Congress and set up a fight between the president and the legislature over how to fund the Department of Homeland Security, which enforces immigration. The agency is set to run out of money later this month if Congress doesn’t secure funding.

A majority of Americans -- 56 percent – disapprove of how Obama is handling immigration while 42 percent approve and 1 percent said they don’t lean either way. The president fares only slight better on health care, where 55 percent of Americans said they approve of his job, 43 percent said they approve and 1 percent said they don’t lean either way.
