Actually, it is from a paper with more Hispanic employees then gringos. You don't want to believe it because without the illegal aliens Democrats don't have the Hispanic vote. Legal Hispanic immigrants are Republicans now. They work, and raise children that don't kill each other off in gangs. They are educated Gasp!
good one.im sure its true.why would they lie.told you looking better all the time.

The Journal staff didn't conduct the survey. It was Gallup that did the survey. The Journal merely reported the poll results.

That is even better Gallup has been conducting political polls for decades. They tend to lean Democrat, if they say Democrats are losing the Hispanic vote it must be worse then we think.

I can't figure why legal immigrants would vote for him in the first place. Amnesty will hurt legal immigrants as much or more than anyone else. Obama and the Democrat scammers main objective is to capture the illegal alien vote. They're trying to turn amnesty into a racial thing so they can BS the legal immigrants to keep voting for them, even while they're screwing them.

Yes, and brought to you by the same pollster that predicted Romney would win by a landslide in 2012.
Can you say, "credibility deficit".
LOL
All polling has a "credibility deficit". Whoever pays for the poll gets the results they are looking for.

No truer words were ever spoken. They are just meant to sway public opinion, usually for other than honest reasons.

Nah, the bias comes in on the part of the reader. Cat74 is a perfect example. Most of us take the "poll" with a grain of salt but Cat74 thinks it's gospel coz it reinforces his/her/its bias.

bonehead, there is no such thing as the undocumented voting to any great extent. Proven fact in NM by a grandstanding Republican governor, who was hell bent on proving the opposite to appeal to nativist regressives like yourself.

Quit lying.

can you be so ignorant to talk as if all Hispanics are immigrants? Many here in New Mexican can trace ancestry here back to a couple of centuries before there was even a United States. Like any American, they should not be harassed by some local yokel LEO in Arizona or be a pawn in Republican racial scapegoating.

You obviously don't understand how polls are taken. I have the same opinion on illegal aliens as Cat 74 but I wouldn't believe a poll even if it agreed with my position. I've seen polls come up way too many far fetched conclusions to believe them. What you describe as someones interpretation reinforcing their bias is the most obvious in our media.

You're right. There were many Mexicans in New Mexico when the gringos arrived. That doesn't justify illegal aliens. Anyway, they were probably here because they were lost and couldn't find their way home. Face it dog, sand and snakes were NMs claim to fame until the gringos got there.

I submit you're the one with the comprehension problem. The poll was about Obama losing Hispanic support. Repeat Hispanics, not illegal aliens. In your bigoted mind, you saw the word Hispanics and immediately equated them to illegal aliens.

It was inevitable that he would lose legal Hispanic votes. That's because he's screwing them by allowing this flood of illegals..Obama's response to the FACT that he is screwing legal immigrants is to portray his opponents as racists, like you're doing. By doing that he can retain a greater portion of their vote even as he is screwing them by supporting his main objective which is to cultivate the potential votes of the illegal aliens. The minute you accused me of being bigoted, I knew you were one of THEM. Have a nice day

Let me repeat it again a third time, the topic was the supposed waning support of Hispanics for Obama. Period. You and you're ilk interjected the topic of illegal aliens into the conversation because you equate full fledged American Hispanics with illegal aliens. I'm ready to repeat it until it sinks into your dimwit.

Do you have a copy of the sampling used in the poll? Oh, you don't. So how do you know that illegals weren't polled? Oh you don't. Run along little dog. Wag your oblivious tail elsewhere. Try to find some more imaginary racists if that makes you feel better....."dimwit".

And you do? And irrefutable evidence that illegal aliens participated in the polls.
