Wall shutdown drives Hispanics to back Trump

According to NPR, most Hispanics support President Donald John Trump. His job approval is +4 among Hispanics, while it is -10 among whites and -76 among black people.

The poll was conducted last weekend. It showed a 37-point gain for the president among Hispanics in two months.

The NPR poll consistently shows President Trump has a low job approval. He was minus 11 in the first one in February 2017. Two years later, he is minus 14. So his low numbers overall are not news.

But going from minus 33 among Hispanic voters to plus 4 in two months is huge news, especially when the media assumed that the wall was racist and turning off Hispanic voters.

Media-ite delved into the NPR poll to find this nugget.

Media-ite reported, "The January poll was conducted during the government shutdown over border wall funding, most notably. So the big swing among Latinos was while Trump and Democrats faced off over funding for the wall."

Glenn Reynolds observed, "Well, that’s a shock all right. I wonder what the Democrats’ internal polls show. They haven’t been acting like they think this shutdown thing is a winner for them, but wow. Or else this is an outlier, but if so it’s a big outlier."

One explanation is that legal immigrants resent line jumping illegal aliens.

Another explanation is that Hispanics are more likely to be victims of MS-13 rapists, muggers, and murderers.

Another explanation is that Democrats take Hispanics for granted and let them down.

Finally, President Trump is making America great again. Hispanic employment is at an all-time high.

Whatever the reason, this development is news.

Someone should tell NPR to read its own poll.

  1. Legal hispanic imigrants are harmed finacially by illegal imagrants as are all Americans. I can tell you from personal experience that it is very simple, and cheap to get the false documentation required to gain employment in the U.S. A social security card, a permanent resident card, and a state ID are easily purchaced for usually under $200. These are fake, but they look real. Trust me, those who employ these people know very well, whom they are hiring. They accordingly pay them as little as possible. Using the fake S.S number, the illigal alien can file his taxes at the end of the year. Most of them claim several dependents, therefore the refund will be several thousand dollars, due to the earned income credit. These refunds would be much better spent on a wall accross our southern boarder.

  2. Hard working, family oriented Hispanics are tarnished by the illegal Immigrants. Many are from families that have been in the US for generations and are as legal and American as I am.

    It is easy to see why they support the wall and PDJT instead of the illegals and their enablers.

    I despise those that tarnish my religion with their disgusting liberalism. I despise those whose actions perpetuate stereotypes about the south. I don’t think I am alone in my reactions.

    1. I'm a conservative yankee. We love the south. When I go to Myrtle Beach, most of the license plates seem to be from Ohio.

    2. In Florida, they refer to the winter people as "Q-tips." That's what you see when you see who's in the front seat of their cars. Little wisps of white hair poking up.

      I'm hoping to become a Q-tip, myself. We have friends in Florida and love visiting, but I'd rather live in Virginia and visit Florida. If I had a few hundred thousand to spare, I'd buy a condo on Pine Island or Cape Coral.

    3. In that case, I want to be a Q tip too. To have made it to the age where my hair is white, means I'm still among the living, although I'm close to being bald now. I might gualify as a Q ball though.

  3. “My style of deal-making is very simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I’m after. Sometimes I settle for less than I sought, but in most cases I still end up with what I want.”

    2. Illegal immigrants also harm illegal immigrants in all kinds of ways. More competition for work, handouts, or whatever.

    3. I'll tell you who looks like she started out very high.

      AOC.

      Whether she's pushing or not, though, that's a matter for the DEA.

    1. No need to be afraid of the tote bag carrying liberals at NRP. The might very well get the hell kicked out of them by the Little Sisters of the Poor in a pick up football game. Plus, the all sound sedated when the are on the air.

  5. Even among the illegals here the wall is becoming popular. here in Kansas, most of the illegals want to work and be left alone. They know full well that the caravans trekking north are populated with the drug gang members they fled when they came here.
    To put it another way, neither of the conservatives who fled from California to Texas were happy to see disillusioned Cali liberals arriving in Dallas.

  6. "Another explanation is that Democrats take Hispanics for granted and let them down."
    So, is it racist to deduce Hispanics are more intelligent than blacks?
    Two more days. I think keeping nancy home will be good for at least that much.

  7. If Hispanics wouldn't watch CNN, they would vote more conservative than whites. Hispanics are conservative by nature but very prone to propaganda.

  8. I love telling my immigration pals who work on the other side of my building, "no one hates illegal immigrants more than you clients." They are all liberals and hate when I say that.

  9. +76 among blacks means that the percent favoring Trump is 76 points higher than the percent against.

    So, that means 12% approve and 88% disapprove.

  10. The legal immigrants, and their kids, are understanding about the problems, for them, brought on by the illegals.
    More and faster approval of legals, after a Wall is built and enforcement against illegals, and lots of pro-family Catholic Hispanics will go Rep.
