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.
