Hispanic Support For Obama Increases
Hispanic support for President Barack Obama is increasing since his recent announcement that certain illegal immigrants will be allowed to stay and work in the United States.
A new poll shows the percentage of Hispanics whose view of the president was "very positive" was 41 percent, up 10 points since a similar May poll. The percentage of Hispanics who felt similarly about Mitt Romney remained at about 6 percent. The poll also found the 300 people interviewed were more likely to approve of Obama's handling of the economy than in May.
The monthly poll was conducted from June 20 to June 24 by NBC News, its sister company Telemundo, and the Wall Street Journal. Its margin of error was plus or minus 5.7 percent.
