It seems that President Obama will do almost anything to secure the legacy he wants — even if that means making the American people dislike him.

His approval rating hasn’t been stellar for years, but he’s now at under 40% and things don’t seem to be moving in a positive direction, according to a Quinnipiac poll.

The recent dip is likely due to the drastic move he just made on immigration. In case you’ve been living under a rock, the President used executive action to implement his own personal immigration reform.

Last night, he was caught on tape admitting that he violated the Constitution, saying, “I just took action to change the law.”

He didn’t have to say it out loud for the truth to be revealed but it certainly solidifies what much of the nation already thinks.

And it’s not just a segment of people —  it’s actually a widespread disapproval across party, age and gender. The under-30 Democrat crowd is excluded from that set but otherwise, it’s fair game from every angle.

The downfalls within in Obamacare, botched foreign policy and now, the move to offer amnesty to over 5 million people is taking it’s toll.

According to the Hill,  “only 48 percent of American voters now say illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the U.S. with a pathway to citizenship — down 9 percentage points from a year ago.”

There has been outcry from legal immigrants who came to the United States and went through the legal immigration process. So many toiled for years to become citizens and now, individuals who broke the law and crossed the border will get that same opportunity at much less a personal cost.

President Obama may achieve his dream of allowing amnesty in America, but the legacy of that will have more consequences than he can imagine.
