Gallup Poll: Barack Obama Down 36% Among Hispanics and Overall Job Approval at 40%



There is a reason why President Barack Obama has a 40% jobs approval rating, while 53% disapprove of the way “The One” has handled the his job as president. According to CNS News, Obama has dropped 36% among Hispanics Americans since 2009 and is presently at a 49% approval rating.

Only 49 percent of Hispanic Americans said last week they approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, according to the Gallup poll. That is down 36 points from the high of 85 percent that Obama’s approval hit among Hispanics in the Gallup poll in the spring of 2009, his first year as president.

This can completely explain Obama’s “quid pro quo” attempt to buy back Hispanic votes with his “end run” around Congress and changes the manner in which the US exports illegals. Imagine that, Obama himself deciding on what laws of the United States he will follow and which ones he will not.  Sadly, this is nothing more than “back door” amnesty and a president making law himself, rather than that being passed by Congress.

Bowing to pressure from immigrant rights activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria, such as attending school, having family in the military or having primary responsible for other family members’ care.

The move marks a major step for President Obama, who for months has said he does not have broad categorical authority to halt deportations and said he must follow the laws as Congress has written them.

      No worries there, Hispanics know what NOT to vote and that’s republican.
      SM: Actually my Hispanic friends who came to the US legally and many of whom fled Castro’s Cuba are proud to be Americans and despise those that would try and circumvent the laws that they followed.

      Julia, you miss the part that Hispanics are predominately Catholic and many of the social views that Obama has are directly against their views, like gay marriage. Many Democrat and liberal/progressive social policies are in direct opposition of Hispanic culture. That’s a major reason why the vote has been reduced so much.

      They don’t vote Republican, huh? Don’t tell that to Marco Rubio in Florida where Latinos voted for him at 55%.

      The only word to describe him… desperate!

      (Maybe we can pass him off as an illegal Mexican and deport him)

      Mr. President:

      Why, oh, why did you have to turn out to be such a dud? All our hopes and dreams – down the toilet!

      This is a Democrat/Socialist move that they hope will work with the hispanic vote. A backdoor type of amnesty that is calculated to provide a new reason to vote Democratic tickets.
      The fact that illegals do not have a vote will only mean an opportunity for more vote stealing. ACORN and SIEU are still out there doing the dirty work even though ACORN has changed its name.

      If Obama can’t get something passed through Congress, he does it anyway.
      Our Republic is set up so there are checks and balances.
      Obama is a dicktator, ignoring the laws of America to force his agenda.
      God Help Us.

      Julia is just another misinformed leftist talking points LIBTARD who watches people like Ed “hates women” Shultz; the butch Rick Maddow; Chris “I have a tingly feeling up my leg Matthews and just regurtitates their vile libtard spew….

      Hey Julia, get a thought of your own you minion!
