Skip to comments.Paul Bedard : Shock poll: Hispanic support for Trump increases 55% since election
Posted on 05/03/2017 1:41:43 PM PDT by ameribbean expat
In its latest survey, Zogby Analytics said that Hispanic support has hit 45 percent, two points higher than the president's generic approval.
That is 55 percent higher than the total Latino vote for Trump in the election. He won just 29 percent.
"The biggest surprise in this new poll is Trump's approval among Hispanic voters, which is at 45 percent approval/51 percent disapproval. In February the numbers were less among Hispanics at 39 percent approval/53 percent disapproval," said Zogby.

The dirty little secret is that it’s all over 50%
Hispanics, like whites, are a mixed bag; they come from various countries for various reasons, and trying to forge them into a voting block like blacks has proven futile. Some come here for free sh!t, and some come here to work hard for a better life - and the latter I suspect overwhelmingly support Trump.
As one astute FReeper pointed out (and I concur, from experience): I’ve never seen a Hispanic panhandler (and I live in a heavily Hispanic area). I’m more likely to be approached by a white panhandler than a Hispanic one; there is just something culturally unacceptable about that to them (and I AM lumping them together on that score).
Heh heh heh.
My bet is his approval with whites and blacks is higher too.
I would love to see his numbers among Russian Americans.
Florida: the panhandlers are 95% white or black. Once in a while you’ll see a Hispanic.
If you’re Hispanic unless you’re a schizophrenic hophead or drug addict you don’t need to panhandle
Advocacy groups make sure you supplement your cash with voting rights and services paid for by bad ol’ whitey
Yet, the idiot Republicans that oppose the wall claim building it will hurt his support among Latinos.
Oh we can’t build a wall and deport illegal aliens.
We’ll lose all the Hispanic support.
Ha ha ha...
We were right on target, and the GOPe was lost in space.
[Yet, the idiot Republicans that oppose the wall claim building it will hurt his support among Latinos]
It’s a red herring. The real reason is that their corporate donors are against it.
Did they ask specifically why?
They are probably happy that he is getting the criminal aliens out of their neighborhoods.
Wait! What? /he he he
How ‘bout that - in spite of ‘rat propaganda that Hispanics are robots who vote lock-step for leftwing policies, the fact is they are pretty much like the general population in wanting security, prosperity, good education and religious liberty for themselves and their families.....

When they were trying to get NAFTA passed, the same people said there would be a “flood” of illegal immigrants if NAFTA failed.
What’s happening here is what happened to me personally under Reagan. We were a pretty strong democrat Hispanic-American family. After figuring out the media and the leftist DC establishment was lying about what President Reagan stood for was enough for me to question my loyalty to the democrat party.
I soon realized President Reagan stood for more of what I believed than the democrats. While I wasn’t old enough to vote the first time around for President Reagan, you bet I did for his second term.
The leftist DC establishment and the media’s lies about Donald Trump was far worse than what President Reagan went through. More Hispanic-Americans and I’m sure other Americans are figuring this out as well or at least we hope this is the case.
Not only that, but many have been here for generations. They don’t want open borders any more than other Americans. They don’t like being lumped in with border jumpers and pandering to illegals only alienates them. They do want good jobs.
“Florida: the panhandlers are 95% white or black. Once in a while youll see a Hispanic.”
LOL. I can see how someone would read the comment that way!
