Latinos Give Obama Higher Ratings on Immigration, Fox News Latino Poll Says
Source: Fox News
Three months after President Barack Obama announced plans to suspend deportation for some undocumented immigrants, Latinos are giving him higher ratings for his handling of immigration.
In a new Fox News Latino poll of 887 likely Latino voters nationwide, 58 percent of respondents say they approve of the job Obama is doing on immigration, 32 percent disapprove.
Independent Latinos – who are considered particularly crucial in this presidential election – were evenly split, with 42 percent approving and 42 percent disapproving. Among Democrat Latinos, 77 percent approved, 14 percent disapproved. Republican Latinos largely (65 percent) disapprove, 26 percent approve.
Overall, Latinos graded Obama higher in the new poll than they did in earlier polls, when some 60 percent of Latinos said they disapproved of the way the administration had handled immigration, notably deportations, which have reached a record number under his presidency.
