Obama’s popularity among Latinos is back

President Barack Obama has once again improved his standing among Latinos. A new Gallup poll released this week finds Obama’s approval rating among Latinos has surged to 68 percent following the announcement of his executive actions on immigration. Meanwhile, Obama’s approval rating among all voters across the nation stands at 43 percent.

This year, the president’s approval rating among Latinos has mostly hovered in the fifties. In September, however, it dropped to a low of 47 percent. That’s around the same time Obama announced that he would delay taking executive action on immigration until after the November elections, instead of by the end of the summer like he had promised. When Obama was first elected as president in 2008, he received 67 percent of the Latino vote. He also received 71 percent of the Latino vote when he ran for re-election in 2012. Over the years, the president’s approval rating among Latinos has ranged from a high of 82 percent in 2009 to a low of 48 percent in 2011. Another peak occurred in 2012 when he had an approval rating of 75 percent among Latinos. That’s around the same time he announced that undocumented youth who came to the United States as children would be protected from deportation and granted work permits under a new deferred action program. The latest Gallup poll results come more than a week after a Latino Decisions poll found that 89 percent of Latino voters surveyed said they supported Obama’s decision to use his executive powers to offer deportation reprieve and work permits to millions of undocumented immigrants. The poll also noted the immigration issue is personal for many Latino voters, as 64 percent of Latinos surveyed said they know someone who is undocumented.
