IN 2008, President Obama received 67% of the Hispanic vote. Last November, a Associated Press-GfK poll found 68% support for President Obama. This July, a Associated Press-Univision poll has found Obama's support down to 57%. This comes on the heels of President Obama's immigration reform push. When Hispanics realize there will be no immigration reform this year, that bump will wear off and Obama could see Hispanic support numbers below 50%.
President Barack Obama’s once solid support among Hispanics is showing a few cracks, a troubling sign for Democrats desperate to get this critical constituency excited about helping the party hold onto Congress this fall.
