Wow: Obama down 23 points among Latinos in 2013

posted at 8:31 pm on December 5, 2013 by Allahpundit

Not the only interesting result here — Gallup’s also picking up the trend of millennials abandoning The One — but after so much post-election heavy breathing about his advantage with Latinos and how the GOP can win them back, it’s obviously the showstopper.

Second look at congressional gridlock on immigration reform?

ga

The glass-half-full read: This is proof positive that Democrats do not, in fact, own the Latino vote. They can blow it, and to some extent may already have. But then, we already knew that from previous Gallup polls. Back in August, they noted that O’s job approval among Latinos was conspicuously volatile, soaring to 80 percent at one point in the first four and a half years of his presidency and dropping to 49 percent at another. If the first two months of ObamaCare could push him nearly underwater with Latinos, what will another year of rate shock and shrinking provider networks do? Without lifting a finger, the GOP may be back in play for this demographic — not so much that they’d win it outright, but enough that they could close the gap to, say 15-20 points instead of 40-45. In a tight election, that would be ruinous for Democrats.

The glass-half-empty read: The guy’s entire year has been one policy fartburger after another — a failed gun-control push, phantom red lines on Syria and Iran, the ObamaCare disaster, and of course nothing whatsoever accomplished on immigration — and he’s still above 50 percent with Latinos. Exactly how much has to go wrong to shake their confidence in him? Job approval isn’t even a binary metric, where people are forced to choose between O or the GOP. It’s a pure referendum on Obama and he’s still above water in spite of everything. There’s no reason to think they wouldn’t still prefer him 70/30 to a random Republican. Don’t forget either that ObamaCare, in the abstract, is popular with Latinos. It’s way more likely that the recent downturn is due not to some ideological sea change within the demographic about what government’s capable of but rather dissatisfaction over Glitchapalooza and O’s failure to deliver what he promised. Between that and amnesty, that’s the story of 2013 vis-a-vis Latino voters: The man simply can’t deliver. What happens in 2016 when Democrats shed his baggage and nominate someone as popular with Latinos as Hillary Clinton, who’ll doubtless promise to reform ObamaCare so that it “works”?

As for the great immigration reform debate, you can — and will — read this, of course, to align with your personal preference. If you’re pro-amnesty, then this poll shows that the GOP has a new window of opportunity to impress Latino voters. Seize the momentum by pushing through comprehensive immigration reform now. You’ll show them that you’re serious about their votes at a moment when Obama’s at his weakest. If you’re anti-amnesty, then this poll shows that you don’t need to pass reform in order to have an opening with Latinos. The ObamaCare clusterfark has done it for you. If anything, Latinos might be punishing Obama for the gridlock in Congress over immigration, in which case the GOP has every incentive to keep it going. Focus on bread-and-butter issues like better health-care reform and economic growth and Latinos, like any other part of the electorate, will take a renewed interest in the GOP. Which approach, do you suppose, does John Boehner endorse?

Think about that while you watch this guy, Democrat Jared Polis, freak out on the House floor.

Too many Latinos [that old identity politics crap] have little to nothing in common with the illegals. Many, many have been here since before we were a Republic. Others came legally [under the laws of the time] and built families, businesses. Many many served and are serving in our armed forces. Many many many identify as American, then as Hispanics, then as soldiers, teachers, scientists, business leaders, entrepreneurs. And they achieved, like everyone else who has made something good for themselves, family, and country along the way.

But, to Obama…they are merely a voting bloc to be manipulated, to be trucked out at rallies, rallies that hail those who are here illegally, whilst denigrating those who have been here all along and built this nation over the years…and the loathing seethes.

And, of course, they are sick and tired of Obama and those who pretend to love all Hispanics…so long as they vote Dem…and welcome illegals, remove religion from our neighborhoods, schools and daily life, and accept as their fate being minions in a nanny state.

But, many many many all equally loathe any on the Right who would presume to do the same.

“Latinos”, like Palestinians and Blacks, need to have “I’m freaking STUPID!” tattooed on their foreheads.

The Democrats OWNED the White House, the House and the Senate for TWO YEARS!

So why didn’t they pass “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”?

Guess when you can keep Blacks on the plantation, it’s not hard to keep Latino’s “in their place”.

And the IDIOTS continue to suck it up!

Not all Latinos want illegal alien amnesty. It is so insulting to suggest that they do. Just because someone is Latino doesn’t mean they feel common cause with illegal aliens. Other issues are way higher on their list of priorities, I believe.

We should be promoting attrition through enforcement, which has wide support.

NO ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY. EVER.

…that is why there are people in the gallery who are potentially facing deportation and their families are being torn apart. It’s very simple.

Um, no. They are facing deportation because they entered the country illegally, and according to our laws they should be escorted back out. No one is tearing their families apart since their families can and should go with them.

Should children be with their parents? Yes! So if the parents are sent back to their home country they should take their children with them. If they choose to leave those children behind because the children were born here, that is their choice.

It’s very simple.

Just imagine what Obama’s poll numbers would be with BUsh’s Press!!! Like the Democrats can’t run on the truth, so Obama and company can’t survive without a sycophant media. The fact is they don’t deserve to win elections or have good polls, based on what they actually accomplish. I read a piece today that questions whether Obama is actually all that he’s trumped up to be. Based on his actual accomplishments, you really have to wonder how smart he really is. If his name were Bush, his college transcripts would already be public. If his name were Bush, the press would be interviewing everyone who knew him at every level of his path through life. Obama could not survive that sort of scrutiny and he should be a little respectful that our illustrious free press has given him a pass.

I’m one of the few pro path-to-citizenship amnesty Reagan conservatives here. Many of the conservatives that oppose a path to citizenship seem to focus their anger on the establishment, but they seem to overlook the fact that a good chunk of the evangelical/catholic GOP base are increasingly more sympathetic towards the idea of a path to citizenship. The SBC, of which I am a member, passed a resolution in support of legalization, and the Catholic church has long been a champion of a path to citizenship. This may help explain, in part, why the poll numbers on legalization versus deportation are so lopsided.

Hispanic is not a race. Its an ethnicity.

Secondly, the F.S.A. is not going to suddenly go away.

TX-96 on December 6, 2013 at 6:15 AM

This is proof positive that Democrats do not, in fact, own the Latino vote. They can blow it, and to some extent may already have.

No it isn’t. Hispanics have massively socialist and racially self-interested attitudes. They can shift right and left a bit depending on how things are going, but their default is far to the left of whites.

Non-white mass immigration is Democrat mass immigration, or Socialist mass immigration.

What non-whites tend to want is a powerful state that favors them as much as possible, with goodies like affirmative action and free stuff.

The more non-whites there are getting preferred access to education, jobs and goodies, the worse things are for the whites being shoved aside and made to pay for this, so a conflict of interests is locked in – and that conflict of interests is the basis of Democrat strategy. It’s openly “punish our enemies” now, and it’s only going further in that direction.

Every white kid born today is in the minority – out-voted before he or she was born. This disempowered minority has to pay for goodies for the majority – while being given second-class access to education and jobs, and less-than-equal protection of the laws.

Older whites live in a fantasy world, like the mostly white world they grew up in. Young people do not live in that world.

Basically, the Democrat attitude that race is the main game is proving correct, because they are making it that way; meanwhile the “race-blind” conservative attitude gets more ridiculous every year.

David Blue on December 6, 2013 at 6:48 AM

Wow: Obama down 23 points among Latinos in 2013

So, freaking what?

Has anyone noticed in the Right Talk radio that NO ONE CARES that his numbers are in the crapper? Has Boehner or McConnell gotten any more assertive since these polls? mmmmmm, NO.

Wait until a week of OBAMA is MANDELA news coverage.

Early this week the media had the Paul Walker racing distraction, now they have the Mandela is dead (forget he was a commie) meme. Looks like we’ll need another “SQUIRREL” by late next week so what will it be? A natural disaster? Snowstorm in NYC? Celebrity overdose? Shooting in a public place?

So predictable, and his poll numbers won’t go much lower until the employers start dumping employees into ObamaCare in 2014…….BUT…..HE’S NOT RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION.

The impostant one was this:

Hispanics – 18 to 29 year old: 46%

We have to remember that many Hispanics are “white” or they look “white enough” to be negativity impacted by racial politics or shall we say Black victimization politics.

Getting hit in the head can do that…
