  • The Democrats Have a Huge Hispanic Voter Problem

    Hispanic voters were supposed to be the party’s future. It’s not working out that way.

    While Trump was enacting his anti-immigrant agenda, Latino voters seemed to have slowly warmed up to the president. In last week’s NPR/PBS/Marist poll, 41 percent of Hispanics approved of Trump’s performance (black Americans? 12 percent). This is no outlier. Another recent poll put Trump’s approval among Latinos at 35 percent. An average of both would put Trump—again, an overtly nativist president—within about 10 points of Barack Obama’s 49 percent approval among Hispanic at roughly the same time in his presidency.

    That this sort of data shocks many Democrats reflects amnesia and a misunderstanding of the complexity of Latino America. Trump himself won29 percent of the Latino vote in 2016, according to exit polls, two points more than Mitt Romney did in 2012. Roughly a third of Latino voters self-identify as conservative, and a fourth self-identify as Republicans (with more being Republican-leaning independents).

    Personally, I'd like to welcome all the new Latino voters over to the winning side.

    Viva America!

        Just YESTERDAY, you were claiming Trump had 35% approval among blacks.

        What happened?

          That's not my words. It's a NY Magazine writer.

          Trump is at 36% with blacks, according to Rasmussen

            I'm sure you believe that too. Whatever poll has Trump at the highest percentage that's what you believe. Regardless of polls that polled significantly more blacks that have him at 12%. You funny.

          Can't tell if the OP thinks this poll is accurate or not.

            Meanwhile in the real world, it looks like support for our "creepy porn President" is declining in his typically stronghold States.

              It's not a single poll.

                "Honey, NPR is at the door trying to show me some BS poll"

                "Did you tell them that Latinos aren't going to turn out for Dems, and it's a serious problem for them?"

                "Yes, but they keep waving this phony poll in front of me like it means something"

                "Shut the door on them"

                  Trump's approval rating is still in the toilet, but then he is a "creepy porn President".

                    WAS.

                    He was at 36, according to Rassmusslol. In early August.

                    Now he is at 12, according to the poll YOU are citing in this thread.

                    I guess sending Ice agents around the Country to arrest Hispanics and splitting up families at the border plus deporting Hispanics who were born here or denying entry to the US to Hispanics who were born here all adds up to Trumps magic formula for big support among Hispanics.

                      Legal Hispanics give me the biggest tips.
                      and no, I don't don't talk politics on my bus ever.
                      they just love me.

                        I figured out why the left likes polls so much.
                        only Daryl and I know the answer.
