Gallup: Hispanics split with Obama
   
 

By Mario Trujillo


President Obama’s approval rating has taken the steepest dive with Hispanics since his reelection last year, according to a Gallup analysis.

Obama's approval rating recorded a 23-percentage-point drop among Hispanics since last year, compared to an average drop among all Americans of 12 percent.

Fifty-two percent of Hispanics still approve of Obama, but that's a drop from 75 percent in December 2012.
Exit polls showed that Obama won Hispanics by a 71percent to 27 percent margin in the 2012 election against GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

Other voting groups that make up Obama's base also have seen 15-point plus drop offs — including people making less than $24,000 a year, nonwhites and young voters.

Centrist and independent voters also recorded a 16-percent and 15-percent drop, respectively.

Democrats have seen a 13-point drop, while centrist Democratic approval of Obama dropped 16 percent.

A separate poll by Harvard’s Institute of Politics released Wednesday recorded a similar decline in support among young people.

Obama’s approval among 18- to 29-year-olds has dropped 15 points to a low of 46 percent in Gallup’s monthly average. The Harvard poll of young voters found Obama’s overall approval rating had dropped to 41 percent.

Gallup noted that Hispanics have been the most volatile demographic in terms of supporting Obama throughout his presidency.

Obama's approval among Hispanics peaked at 80 percent. Obama's lowest approval rating level recorded for Hispanics is 49 percent.

Overall, the drop off in support has come most drastically from people who tend to have high support for Obama because approval among those who disagree with him cannot get much lower. His approval among Republicans has only dropped 3 points this year, from 11 percent to 8 percent support today.

Obama’s approval rating has dropped among every demographic and his overall approval stands at 41 percent in November's monthly Gallup average.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

I would like some research about these tickets:

--Paul/Cruz
--Cruz/Paul
--Paul/Martinez
--Paul/Sandoval
--Paul/Rubio
--Walker/Cruz
--Walker/etc.
etc.

I think Cruz, Rubio, Martinez or Sandoval will be on the ticket, and the GOP could win the Presidency.

How many calls do they have to ignore to keep him above 40%?

They've got to be working hard at it, because there's no way this guy has that high of an approval rating.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
