    has it exactly right

    1.What does "has it exactly right" mean in the following sentence? Is it a fixed phrase?

    (On policy grounds, President Bush has it exactly right: Although the extent of illegal immigration has become unacceptable and should be curbed, immigration remains a big plus for the U.S.)

    2.In the following sentence, does "can't get a majority of his own party " mean "his own party can't win the majority (more votes) in congress" or "the president can't win the suport of his own party"?

    (President Bush can't get a majority of his own party in Congress to sign on to his program about immigration.)

    Thanks.

    Hi
    .
    1. The writer thinks Bush's opinion is exactly right.
    .
    2. Yes, the writer is saying that Bush is not able to convince even half of the Republicans in Congress (his own party) to support his immigration program.
