It seems as though President Obama will proclaim his executive actions on immigration tomorrow.  A WSJ-NBC poll showed that only 38% of Americans support the president taking unilateral action on immigration.  As a point of reference, Richard Nixon never seemed to dip below 40% of public support for his policies in Vietnam, according to Gallup.

It's also worth noting that, in the lead-up to the president's proclamation, he will be reportedly dining exclusively with congressional Democrats tonight.  The president may be hoping that partisan polarization will allow him to centralize power further through executive decrees.
