President Trump's approval rating has skyrocketed among Latinos during the government shutdown over the border wall.
According to a new NPR/PBS News Hour/Marist Poll, his approval among the demographic has improved by 20 points since December. The poll was taken from January 10-13, 2019 and asked "Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president? [And, would you say you strongly approve/disapprove of the job he is doing or just approve/disapprove?]"
Twenty-nine percent of Latinos responded "strongly approve," with another 22 percent who "approve." The combined number puts his approval at 51 percent. Nearly half, 41 percent, "strongly disapprove."
In December, 31 percent of Latinos approved and 64 percent disapproved.
In the meantime, the battle over border security and the ongoing government shutdown continues in Washington D.C.
There are now 77 major or significant Walls built around the world, with 45 countries planning or building Walls. Over 800 miles of Walls have been built in Europe since only 2015. They have all been recognized as close to 100% successful. Stop the crime at our Southern Border!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 16, 2019
It's been 27 days since @realDonaldTrump forced the start of the #TrumpShutdown -- and the Senate still hasn't held a single vote to re-open government. Tune in as I speak with reporters. #EndTheShutdown https://t.co/uxnjhp0VSn— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) January 17, 2019
