Gallup: Hispanic Voters' Preferences Unchanged Post-Arizona Law (Nationwide Poll)
Gallup ^ | June 11, 2010 | Gallup

Posted on 06/11/2010 2:56:18 PM PDT by GOPGuide

PRINCETON, NJ -- Hispanic voters nationwide haven't shifted their congressional voting preferences since the signing of Arizona's new immigration law on April 23. Their preference for the Democratic candidate over the Republican candidate, 61% to 32%, in April 23 to June 8 interviewing almost identically matches the 60% to 32% margin recorded between March 1 and April 22. White voters and black voters also haven't changed their voting intentions.

But that does not appear to be the case -- at least to this point in time.

That said, President Obama's job approval rating is down among Hispanics this year. This drop appears to have begun prior to the April 23 signing of the new Arizona law. It should be noted that the drop in Obama's approval rating between January and May of this year was primarily among Hispanics who chose to be interviewed in Spanish, while the current sample of registered-voter Hispanics includes significantly fewer of this group.

Something the idiotic GOP should keep in mind when they are warned that if they do "X", they will "lose the Hispanic vote".

The liberal rags here in Arizona are really pimping a lot of crap about an Hispanic “surge” to the ‘RAT party. I don’t believe any of it for a second. I personally know WAY TOO MANY Hispanics who agree with the rest of us Americans. If anything, some may go over to the GOP. I wouldn’t be surprised. The libbie losers need to knock of the drugs and stop pushing their lies. Saying something does not make it so. That’s just wishful thinking.

They’re thinking short term cheap labor. They don’t care what happens after they retire or die.

Not mentioned in the illegal immigrant debate are the uncollected fees for documentation and other processing.

Every legal immigrant is required to pay fees as listed on this schedule:

i.e.Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions

It is difficult to accurately measure the number of illegal immigrants in the United States, but most public agencies and private groups had settled on a figure of about 11 million.

multiply 11 million X $500 per application = uncollected revenue $5.5 billion.

They’re only upset with Obama because the free stuff isn’t flowing fast enough.

The moment the GOP accepts the democrat premise that views voters in ethnic blocks they are sunk.

You just cannot out-pander a democrat.

The GOP's ONLY chance is to appeal to the individual American. Its a crying shame most in the GOP have fogotten that.

Those Hispanic voters who will vote Democrat because they favor amnesty and easing of immigration laws are not voting in the best interest of the US. It's just that simple. Why is it wrong for us to defend ourselves against those who brag about changing the demographics of the country to make other groups (e.g. Caucasians) into minorities? That is, in and of itself, an aggressive and racist goal, and should be identified as such. As a society we are anything but colorblind, and the color vision we use to judge is clearly not just against ‘people of color’.

Hispanics are 15% of the population or about 50,000,000 and only 60% of those vote Dem.

Do the math.

Most of the Hispanic vote is a deadbeat vote. Promise me free stuff and I’ll vote for you. Not quite as bad as the Blacks, but getting there.

How foolish the pundits were to think the election would swing on this. everybody that wants a hand out and not a hand up votes democratic.. so the swing number on this would be insignificant

Yeah, the “lose the Hispanic vote” conservatives seem to resort more to hysteria than to hard facts I think. The important thing is not to write off Hispanics as voters or officeholders. Same goes for blacks. You just shouldn’t throw away want you stand for though to get a few more votes.

I think it will help the GOP when Hispanic Republicans win in Florida and New Mexico this November.

It’s mostly white libs who have have white guilt written all over their faces who are selling this crap.

The same white libs who never have 1 single non-white friend in their circles. Same thing here in L.A.: it’s a segregated city but no one will admit it.

Well it would be interesting to see how Rubio (and the New Mexico guy I’m unfamiliar with) respond if conservative immigration reform were to ever get to the point where it might pass on a federal level.

I not only have Hispanics in my circle of friends, I’ve got them (LEGAL) in my family and I know how they feel about this. They too have been robbed and burglarized by illegals in southern Arizona.

Yeah, but when push comes to shove, leftist demagoguery on immigration will drive many Hispanics who otherwise might vote GOP towards the Dems. I’ve seen polls that show most Hispanics agree that there is too much immigration into the United States, but if a immigration reduction bill were to ever get a real shot in Congress, I am sure that in the end Hispanics would overwhelmingly oppose such a bill.

I’m glad you said it first. The Arizona Repulsive is a putrid liberal rag. (Which is too bad because it was once a pretty decent paper.)

The above plus a TWENT TWO PERCENT ENTHUSIASM GAP GOPers/Democrats and the Hispanic vote will be minor except in places where they already make up a large majority.

In New Mexico it’s actually a woman. If she wins she will be the first Latina Governor.

This poll still active!

MSNBC

n July, Arizona will begin enforcing a new law that requires law enforcement officers to check someone’s immigration status if they have reason to suspect that he or she is in the country illegally. Do you think this is a good idea?

As Mark Levin pointed out on his radio show last night and as anyone with common sense has known for years - but Gallup seems to miss - there is no such thing as a “Hispanic vote.” Those who are today considered Hispanic Americans trace their lineage back numerous distinct countries and cultures, e.g., Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican, having only the common factor of the Spanish (or, technically, perhaps Portuguese) language. These distinct groups generally don't even associate with each other, let alone necessarily think alike on sensitive political issues.
