In yet another sign of impending doom for Democrats, the latest Quinnipiac poll shows a key demographic slipping away.
A series of recent polls suggest President Joe Biden is having trouble with an important demographic – Hispanic voters.
The latest, a Quinnipiac University poll released this week, showed Biden’s overall approval rating at 33%, a record low in that poll. Yet among Hispanic voters, his approval was even worse. Just 26% of Hispanics polled said the approved of Biden’s job performance.
Hispanic voters carried Biden to victory in battleground states like Arizona and Georgia in 2020. Decreasing support spells trouble for midterms across the Democratic Party.
“It could translate into Latinos choosing to support a non-Democratic candidate — whether that’s a Republican or an independent remains to be seen in the different congressional districts,” said Mark Hugo Lopez, director of race and ethnicity research at Pew Research Center. “But the other way that that might happen is that Latino voters may not feel motivated to turn out to vote.”
