No wonder U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet and the rest of Colorado’s Democratic congressional delegation are keeping their distance from Joe Biden.
We knew the president’s favorability was sinking, now it’s definitely heading rock bottom and Hispanic voters are fleeing the Democrat Party’s sinking ship.
To understand why, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) says Democrats should just look in the mirror.
“Joe Biden and the Democrats seem to be puzzled about why Hispanic voters are moving away from their party in droves, but the reasons could not be clearer. They support the Republican agenda of smaller government, capitalism, and secure borders. And they reject the Democrats’ agenda of big government, socialism, and open borders.”
A recent Quinnipiac University survey shows a measly 23% of Hispanic Americans approved of Biden’s handling of immigration, down from 49% in May.
A Politico/Morning Consult poll shows approval of Biden’s borders policies down to 40%, compared with 51% in June.

The NRSC’s Hispanic Battleground Survey in April foreshadowed the shift of Hispanic support of Democrat policies. That poll showed 72% of Hispanics supporting more control along the southern border to stop the surge of illegal immigration.
Immigration isn’t the only policy troubling Hispanics, a poll from The Economist/YouGov shows only 45% of Hispanics approve Biden’s handling of the pandemic, way down from 60% in June.
Biden’s handling of the economy has cost him support among Hispanic voters, which a Politico/Morning Consult poll shows only 42% support the Democrat’s direction.

“Biden has lost ground among almost every single demographic group over the past few months, but independents and Hispanics stick out as two key groups where Biden’s standing has especially faltered. For Democrats looking ahead to the 2022 midterms, Biden’s overall approval rating is concerning enough, but if Biden is struggling to win independents and Hispanic that could snuff out any hope Democrats have of holding either chamber of Congress,” the NRSC said.
