Inside Politics: Voters like Obama’s limits on deportations
President Obama’s immigration move last week is a hit with American voters, according to a Bloomberg News poll out Tuesday.
The telephone survey of 734 likely voters showed a better than 2-1 majority agreeing with the policy, which would let many illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children stay here.
According to Bloomberg, 64 percent of respondents favored the president’s order, 30 percent opposed it and 6 percent said they were not sure.
The survey, which had an error margin of 3.6 percentage points, was taken from Friday, the day Mr. Obama made the announcement, through Monday.
While a majority of Republican likely voters — 56 percent — opposed the deportation halt, a solid majority of independents (65 percent) and an overwhelming share of Democrats (86 percent) supported it.

While schools across the country are letting out this week, class is in session on the Mall. That is where the College Board set up 857 student desks in the blazing sun on Tuesday.
The empty desks — one for each student who drops out each hour of every school day, according to the College Board — are part of its Don’t Forget Ed! campaign.
The College Board is an association with members representing more than 6,000 educational organizations. It offers standardized tests including the SATs, among other educational services.
Senators request live TV for Supreme Court ruling
Chairman Patrick J. Leahy and ranking Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said the issues in the case are as important and consequential as any in recent court history.
In a letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the senators said the court should be aware of the great interest Americans have in the outcome of the case. They also noted that millions of citizens would be able to view what only a few could see from the court’s limited public seating.
