Trump 51% job approval among Latinos — 20-point increase since December!
Is President Trump’s determined stance on illegal immigration helping him with Latino voters? A new poll shows the President has a 51% approval among that voter group, according to numbers released this week.
The PBS-NPR-Marist survey, taken from January 10th through 13th, finds 29% of Latinos "strongly approve" of Trump’s performance, while 22% "approve."
Just 4% disapprove, while 41% "strongly disapprove," according to the numbers posted by Harlan Hill.
The poll finds Trump’s approval among Latinos is 1% higher than it is with Whites. Trump’s approval stands at 39% among registered voters, according to the survey.
The numbers find a dramatic rise among Latinos and maybe related to his strong stance against illegal immigration and coincides with his demand for border wall funding as a condition to end the partial government shutdown.
In December, the same firm found just a 31% approval among Latinos — 12% "strongly" approving, while 19% just giving approval. That’s a 20-point jump since December! The survey also found 22% disapproved of his performance, while 41% "strongly" disapproved.
The poll also finds Trump enjoys the largest job approval among Generation X voters, who are currently 38-53 years old. 44% of Gen X voters approve of Trump’s job.
Gen Z/Millennials: 37% approval
Baby Boomers: 39% approval
Silent/Greatest: 37% approval
