In the lead up to the election, Democrats were absolutely certain that Hispanic voters would reject Trump and deliver a win for Hillary Clinton. In the end, Trump got more votes from the Hispanic community than Mitt Romney.
Now we learn that up to 59 percent of Hispanics support Trump’s immigration policies.
The Lid reports:
Hispanic voters may not have liked Donald Trump, but they liked his immigration policies according to a Zogby Analytics poll conducted on behalf of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
According to the poll conducted Nov. 9-10, policy on immigrants is a more important factor in making electoral choices to voters the general population than it is to voters Hispanic voters in making their electoral choices.
“The conventional wisdom that advocating enforcement of immigration laws is a deal-killer for Hispanic voters is just plain wrong.” – Dan Stein, President of FAIR
The key findings of the Zogby Analytics poll include:
- 77.4 percent of Hispanic voters rated immigration as important or somewhat important in their voting decisions. That figure is substantially less than the 84.6 percent of all voters who said it was important or somewhat important, and a full ten percentage points less than the 87.8 percent of white voters who rated it important or somewhat important.
- 58.5 percent of Hispanic voters said they “support Donald Trump’s immigration policies,” including many who said they do not like him as a person. Conversely, only 32.9 percent of Hispanic voters said they “support Hillary Clinton’s immigration policies,” even though a much greater percentage liked her as a person. Among all voters, 54.7 percent supported Trump’s immigration policies compared with 38.4 percent who supported Clinton’s.
That’s the sort of news which will increase panic among Democrats. And the media!
