Poll: Hispanics Of All Ages Lean Toward Democratic Party

PRINCETON, N.J., (UPI) —  Hispanics of all ages in the United States are more than twice as likely to identify with the Democratic Party as the Republican Party, a Gallup poll indicated.

In all age demographic breakouts, Hispanics identifying a party preference skewed toward the Democratic Party by a minimum of 50 percent, while those identifying with the Republican party was no higher than 24 percent, results released Tuesday indicated.

U.S. Census Bureau data indicate 33.2 percent of Hispanics living in the United States are under the age of 18, compared with 19.7 percent of non-Hispanic whites, Gallup said. Calculations based on census data indicate that between 2010 and 2015, the U.S. Hispanic population below 25 years is expected to grow by about 14 percent, while the non-Hispanic white population demographic is expected to decrease by about 0.5 percent.

More than half of U.S. Hispanics younger than 30 identified themselves as political independents when asked which party they support, the Princeton, N.J., polling agency said.

The high percentage of independents among younger Hispanics could suggest some flexibility in party identification, Gallup said. However, Hispanic independents who say they lean to one party or the other in response to a follow-up question broke 20 percent to Democratic identification compared with 12 percent to the GOP.

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, fared poorly among Hispanic voters, capturing 27 percent of the vote. Republican leaders have said they must reach out more to Hispanics as the percentage of this key voting bloc expands for future elections.

Results are based on nationwide phone interviews with 7,901 Hispanic adults conducted Jan. 3-June 27. The margin of error is 2 percentage points.

    Of course the Hispanics vote for Dems. they are too stupid to know that the Dems
    promise them everything and later find out that they have been dumped on. Dems need their votes, even though they are illegal. This country is lost.
    Immigration should have been shut down in early 30’s. There’s only so much a
    country can take with moochers, traitors and just stupid people coming in to get
    a free ride.

    just one question,WHY don’t they see that the democrats lie to them all the time.
    i guess like the communist say tell a lie long enough and the people will start to believe

    • Pissed off socialist

      • Quester55

        It is Written, ” A Double-minded man is Double-minded in all his ways ”

        And with Obama being both black & white, trying to Kiss-Up to both sides, Is as Double-minded as it gets!!

    • Quester55

      EXACTLY ! BOB.

  • Quester55

    True, These dim-wits only see dollar signs when coming to,” The Divided States of Socialist America “, And,” NO Truth” will ever stop them from flooding into our lands.

    Yet look at these People, So Innocent? Not on your life, Just look at the WANTED Postings in your local post office, over 78% of those most wanted are Mexicans or Citizens from Countries.States below Mexico!

    Those wanted for such petty crimes, such as; MURDER, RAPE, Child Molesting, Robbery, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Drug Trafficking, Vandalism, Stalking,
    Racketeering, And the list goes on & on & on……..
    I’m not saying that Americans are any better, but We don’t need this influx of Criminals to add to our problems.

    So of course these WET Backs Vote ( Illegally) for the Democrats, And being a Democrat of the Communist Party, OBAMA does nothing to stop these ILLEGALS from their ILLEGAL Voting. In Fact, He willfully Invites these Dreg’s of other country’s, to Invade our Lands, STEAL all that is not nailed down, And, All on the DIME of the LEGAL CITIZENS of this once FREE NATION!

    • Pissed off socialist

      Look above for racist rant.

      • Quester55

        If there is one thing that you Socialist/Mexicans hate worse than ” The Law of the Land,” It’s the Truth!

  • Alan

    I lived where it was about 60% Hispanic and growing. There were mostly Mexicans, but there were also Peruvians, Costa Ricans, Panamanians, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans. In spite of all the differences between them, they all tended to the Democrats because they wanted the hand-outs and rejected the old-fashioned, American philosophy of working hard and self-denial. I worked in a school with all these groups were present plus Blacks and Whites. It was quite a challenge to teach all of them from different backgrounds…it makes a teacher’s job very hard. Half of them had a very limited knowledge of English. Anyway, they will probably go with the Blacks most of the time. Most of them supported Trayvon Martin, for example, in the Zimmerman case.
