New Poll Illustrates the Myth of the Monolithic Hispanic Vote
"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 . . . 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," Fox News Latino says.
"These results demonstrate that there is a real divide among this extraordinarily complex component of the electorate," said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. 'The condescending elite that cavalierly claims to speak for a Latino voting bloc disrespects the fierce individualism of Latino voters - who are clearly wide ranging in their views on [immigration].'"
