Commentary: A new poll conducted after President Trump’s rally in Rio Rancho shows his approval dropping among Hispanic New Mexicans. The poll, conducted by Equis research, shows Trump job approval among Hispanic New Mexican voters is down to 29%, while favorable views of Democrats rose 13 points. It was conducted after President Trump held a rally in Rio Rancho where he was criticized for his “bizarre” attempt to reach out to Hispanic voters.
DPNM Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement in response to the poll: “Donald Trump came to our state with the same divisive rhetoric that he’s been using since the beginning of his campaign, and it fell flat. New Mexican voters have made it clear again and again that we aren’t interested in the president’s destructive lies and broken promises.”
