It isn’t just immigration: Latinos agree with Dems about jobs, too
The debate over how badly Republicans have damaged themselves among Latinos during the nomination battle understandably focuses on their efforts to woo primary voters by outshouting one another with ever-more-incendiary immigration rhetoric. But what if Latinos also agree with Dems about health care, jobs and the economy?
* Fifty-five percent of Latinos think the best way to help the economy grow is for government to “invest resources in federal projects to stimulate the economy.” Only 31 percent favor lowering taxes to get the economy going again.
* Sixty-one percent of Latinos trust Obama and Dems to make the right decisions to improve the economy, versus only 24 percent who pick Republicans.
* Fifty-seven percent of Latinos say Obama’s health reform law should be left to stand, versus 28 percent who support repeal.
* Romney’s favorable ratings among Latinos are upside down, at 28-41, though many are undecided.
* Seventy-two percent of Latinos say that the GOP either doesn’t care about reaching out to them (45 percent) or is outright hostile to them (27 percent). Only 17 percent say the GOP has done a good outreach job.
