Support for Trump Among Hispanics Surges

Now here’s a poll the mainstream media probably doesn’t want you to see: A recent Zogby Analytics survey shows Hispanic support for President Trump has increased since the election and is now higher than the president’s overall approval rating.

According to the survey, his general approval rating is 43 percent, but among Hispanics it’s two points higher.

That’s impressive considering Trump only won 29 percent of the Latino vote, exit polls showed.

"The biggest surprise in this new poll is Trump's approval among Hispanic voters, which is at 45 percent approval/51 percent disapproval. In February the numbers were less among Hispanics at 39 percent approval/53 percent disapproval," Zogby said.

Overall, Trump’s approval rating is down 5 percentage points from when the survey was conducted in February, from 48 percent to 43 percent. Still, the president has “broad support” among his base.
