New Hispanic Poll from Gallup
Gallup has a new poll of Hispanics, with two headline results regarding immigration and approval of President Obama. Here are quotes from the survey release:
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.
hat 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.
