WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The nation is split when it comes to President Obama's stance on gun control and immigration.
 
According to a recent Rasmussen survey, 44 percent of those surveyed believe Mr. Obama is doing a good or excellent job on issues related to gun control.  However, 38 percent disagree.
 
On the matters of immigration, 39 percent of voters rate the president's handling of immigration issues as good or excellent, while 37 percent say he is doing a poor job in this area.
 
The survey noted that 67 percent of Democrats believe the president is doing a good or excellent job in the area of immigration and 75 percent say the same thing of his handling of gun control issues. 
 
On the opposite end of the spectrum, 70 percent of Republicans feel he's doing a poor job in both areas.
