Photo: Latinos in California don't trust Republicans
A recent survey of 400 California Latinos revealed that what many have long assumed. The majority of Latino voters do not think too highly of the GOP.
The poll stated that 62 percent of Latinos surveyed had a favorable view of Democrats, while only 26 percent had the same view of Republicans. Only 22 percent of Latinos voters agreed that Republicans “stick to core values and nominate true Conservatives,” and about one-third of the total said they would never for a Republican.
Overall, the poll showed that Latino voters hold “widely negative” views of Republican.
When those polled were asked who they trusted to reform immigration laws, 57 percent of voters chose Democrats, only 21 percent said Republicans. Also, 67 percent were in favor of a path to citizenship.
The poll was commissioned by Republican strategist Marty Wilson, who managed the failed California Senate campaign of Carly Fiorina. Wilson worked with pollster and fellow Republican Bob Moore who admitted that there was a lot of “work to be done to convince California Latinos that the Republican Party and its candidates can effectively represent them.”
