77% Latino voters dissatisfied with state of US, but buried data shows GOP still has a lot of work to do

Republican women running for Congress are falling back on 40-year-high inflation and soaring crime to appeal to Hispanic voters, and a recent Pew Research Center poll shows it seems to be working in their favor — or does it?

That’s according to Fox News, which reported that the Republican Party is “touting the number of Latino women they have running for Congress this cycle.”

According to the poll, 77% of Latino registered voters are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country BUT this tidbit was buried in its report that lead with the news that most Hispanics say the Democratic Party cares about Latinos and works hard to earn their vote.  The article was headlined, “Most Latinos Say Democrats Care About Them and Work Hard for Their Vote, Far Fewer Say So of GOP.”

More from Pew:

When it comes to the Democratic Party, the survey finds majorities of Latino adults express positive views of it. Some 71% say the Democratic Party works hard for Latinos’ votes, 63% say it “really cares about Latinos,” and 60% say the Democratic Party represents the interests of people like themselves. By contrast, shares of Latinos say the same of the Republican Party on each statement, though a somewhat greater share (45%) say that the GOP “works hard to earn the votes of Latinos.”

 

As the polling outfit noted, Latino voters are the nation’s second-largest group of eligible voters and are among its fastest-growing voter blocks, making up 14% of voters with nearly 35 million Latinos eligible to vote in 2022.

Nonetheless, when it comes to President Joe Biden, things are not so rosy.

“Overall, 77% of Latino registered voters are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country and 54% disapprove of the way Joe Biden is handling his job as president,” Pew reported. “Meanwhile, just 30% have given ‘a lot of thought’ to this year’s congressional elections, with Latino Republicans and Republican leaners more likely than Latino Democrats and Democratic leaners to say this (36% vs. 27%).”
