Hispanic voters don’t like Donald Trump, but they like his immigration policies according to a Zogby Analytics poll conducted on behalf of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
According to the poll conducted Nov. 9-10, immigration policy is more important to the general population than it is to Hispanic voters when it comes to deciding on which way to vote.
“The conventional wisdom that advocating enforcement of immigration laws is a deal-killer for Hispanic voters is just plain wrong.” – Dan Stein, President of FAIR
The key findings of the Zogby Analytics poll include:
“Donald Trump may not have won the Hispanic vote in this election, but clearly it was not because of his views on immigration,” observed Dan Stein president of FAIR. “If anything, his positions on immigration seem to have helped him among Hispanic voters whose economic circumstances are being harmed by excessive immigration and unchecked illegal immigration.”
“The conventional wisdom that advocating enforcement of immigration laws is a deal-killer for Hispanic voters is just plain wrong. It is a myth perpetuated by groups and individuals with a political stake in maintaining mass immigration and by a bunch of high-price political consultants who continually misread public sentiment,” said
“As Republicans lay out their immigration agenda for the next two years in control of the White House and both houses of Congress, they would be well-advised to ignore the self-anointed spokespeople and the political consulting class. Enforcing immigration laws, securing our borders, protecting American workers and taxpayers, and setting reasonable limits on immigration enjoy broad public support, including large numbers of Hispanic Americans who stand to benefit economically from the policies President-elect Trump ran on,” concluded Stein.
