Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

Undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, so-called "Dreamers," should be allowed to remain in the U.S. and apply for citizenship, 79 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Another 7 percent say Dreamers should be allowed to stay but not apply for citizenship, and 11 percent say Dreamers should be required to leave the U.S.

Support for allowing dreamers to stay and apply for citizenship ranges from 64 percent among Republicans to 92 percent among Democrats, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe- ack) University Poll finds.

American voters oppose 63 - 34 percent building a wall along the border with Mexico. Republicans support The Wall 78 - 19 percent and white voters with no college degree are divided with 47 percent supporting The Wall and 49 percent opposed. Every other party, gender, education, age and racial group opposes The Wall.

Looking at marijuana, voters say 58 - 36 percent, including 79 - 17 percent among voters 18 to 34 years old, that marijuana use should be made legal. Voters also support 91 - 6 percent the legalization of medical marijuana.

Every party, gender, education, age and racial group supports legalization of marijuana except Republicans, who are opposed 62 - 33 percent, and voters over 65 years old, who are opposed 50 - 41 percent. Hispanic voters are divided 48 - 48 percent.

Voters oppose 70 - 23 percent enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana. No listed group supports enforcing federal laws. "Looking at immigration, voters insist emphatically, 'Don't dash the dream.' Voters say that immigrants who were brought here as kids should be allowed to live out their adult lives here as citizens," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"The demographics say pot is here to stay, either for fun or to provide medical comfort," Malloy added. "And the message to Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Hands off."

American voters have a 47 - 14 percent unfavorable opinion of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, while 37 percent haven't heard enough about him to form an opinion of him. The Tax Plan

Voters disapprove 52 - 32 percent of the recently enacted Republican tax plan. Support is 76 - 7 percent among Republicans. White voters with no college degree are divided, with 41 percent approving of the tax plan and 38 percent disapproving. White men are divided at 46 percent approve of the plan and 43 percent disapprove. Every other listed group disapproves.

The tax plan will increase their taxes, 33 percent of voters say, as 24 percent say the plan will reduce their taxes and 37 percent say it will not have much impact.

The wealthy will benefit most from this plan, 66 percent of American voters say, while 22 percent say the middle class will benefit most and 4 percent say low income people will benefit most.

North Korea

American voters say 61 - 36 percent they do not have confidence in President Donald Trump to handle the situation with North Korea.

But voters say 59 - 27 percent that the U.S. will be able to resolve the situation with North Korea diplomatically, rather than through military force.

And voters say 66 - 26 percent that it is not likely the U.S. will get into a nuclear conflict with North Korea in the near future.

Trump Tweeting

American voters say 69 - 26 percent, including 49 - 44 percent among Republicans, that President Trump should stop tweeting from his personal account.

From January 5 - 9, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,106 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percentage points, including the design effect. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado as a public service and for research.
