Poll: Hispanics Support Obama, DNC Party

 NEW YORK, NY - The findings of the Univision-AP Poll relating to Politics show that Hispanics still overwhelmingly support the Democratic Party and the majority think President Obama is doing a good job overall, but the once solid Hispanic support is now waning. On issues important to Hispanics, the President received tepid ratings. The study also found that:


·         70 percent of Hispanics surveyed are U.S. citizens.

·         In relation to Hispanic-related issues, only 41 percent of Spanish Dominant and 46 percent of English Dominant respondents believe the President is doing a good job.

·         Immigration is the #2 most important topic for those surveyed, behind concerns on the economy.

·    Some 59 percent said it is likely that a woman will be elected president sometime in the next two decades while just 29 percent thought it likely that an Hispanic will be elected president over that period. 

·    A significant percentage of Latinos - 41 percent - said they are more likely to vote for a candidate who is Hispanic.
