In another sign the November midterm elections will see widespread losses for Democrats, another poll finds Hispanic voters are more likely than white voters to disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance and prefer Republicans control Congress.

The poll, conducted by Quinnipiac University and released May 18, found only 35 percent of all registered voters approved of Biden’s job performance, with 57 percent disapproving.  Additionally, 47 percent of registered voters preferred Republicans win control of the U.S. House, with 43 percent preferring Democrats.


But what is surprising to many is Hispanics, generally considered a reliable Democrat voting bloc, are now more likely than white voters to disapprove of Biden and prefer Republicans.

When asked “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Joe Biden is handling his job as president?,” only 32 percent of white registered voters expressed approval.  Among Hispanics it was even lower, at only 26 percent approval.

The trend continued in party approval.  When asked “Do you approve or disapprove of the way the Republicans in Congress are handling their job?” Hispanics were more likely than whites to express approval, 33 percent to 28 percent.

Only 24 percent of Hispanics approve(d) of the way the Democrats in Congress are handling their job,” compared to 27 percent of whites.

While support for Republicans is still weak, the rock-bottom approval of Biden and Democrats appears to be fueling strong Hispanic support for GOP candidates.

When asked “If the election were today, would you want to see the Republican Party or the Democratic Party win control of the United States House of Representatives?,” 48 percent of Hispanic registered voters backed Republicans and 34 percent backed Democrats.

\For control of the U.S. Senate, 49 percent of Hispanic registered voters backed Republicans and 36 percent backed Democrats.

The sudden rise of Hispanic support for Republicans and collapse among Democrats appears to be driven by economic problems, and Hispanics possibly being even more opposed than white to the liberal culture war.

The trend continued in party approval.  When asked “Do you approve or disapprove of the way the Republicans in Congress are handling their job?” Hispanics were more likely than whites to express approval, 33 percent to 28 percent.

Only 24 percent of Hispanics approve(d) of the way the Democrats in Congress are handling their job,” compared to 27 percent of whites.

When asked “Do you think Donald Trump should continue to be banned from Twitter or do you think Donald Trump should be allowed to be back on Twitter?,” Hispanics were more likely than whites to back Trump.  

Among whites, 36 percent wanted Trump to remain off Twitter and 57 percent wanted him back.  But among Hispanics only 28 percent wanted Trump to remain off Twitter and 64 wanted him back.

The last time I remember the news telling conservatives all the great voting news, we lost. I feel that old pain starting to creep in again.

This is a conservative News source, and yes we should be on our guard against being too complacent because the powers that be intend to start another pandemic of great magnitude. We have to pray like there’s no tomorrow. If you don’t pray then expect exactly what you’re worried about as happening.

I agree with you… Why should we expect anything different then in the 2020 election? I haven’t seen anything of great significance done, no hangings, no burning at stacks, no treason charges filed against anyone…
However, I would be surprised if there is even a midterm election in November, I believe the United States will be no more than a nuclear waste land by then.
