Regardless of whether they or their parents are U.S.-born, Democrats enjoy a wide advantage among Hispanics, the Gallup poll released Thursday found.
Among U.S.-born Hispanics with both parents born in the country, 64 percent lean Democrat. And U.S.-born Hispanics with at least one parent born outside the U.S. and foreign-born Hispanics heavily lean Democrat, with 57 percent identifying with the party.
Meanwhile, Hispanics not born in the United States also give President Barack Obama a high job approval rating of 79 percent. That drops to 60 percent among those born in the U.S. with at least one parent born elsewhere and 59 percent among those who, along with both parents, are U.S.-born.
The poll was based on telephone interviews conducted June 13 to July 5 among a random sample of 4,373 adults, with a 95 percent confidence that the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
