Most Americans now favor a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are in the United States illegally — provided that they meet certain essential requirements, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll.

In all, the survey found that 83 percent of respondents would support a so-called path to citizenship similar to one proposed by Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio.

The conditions that would be imposed by a clear majority of Americans include learning English, passing a criminal background check, and paying all fines and back taxes, according to the wide-ranging survey.

The poll also found that Americans were “closely divided” as to whether Republicans would handle such issues better than President Barack Obama, the Times reported.

The poll was conducted between April 24-28.
