Biden Faces Dire Disapproval Ratings Among Hispanics In State He Won Big In 2020: Poll

President Joe Biden is bleeding Hispanic support in New Mexico, a state he won by 10 points in 2020 with the help of the key demographic group, according to a new poll shared with The Daily Wire.

New polling data from Power the Future and Public Opinion Strategies shows that the president’s disapproval rating among Hispanics in New Mexico has skyrocketed since taking office. Of the Hispanics polled in the Power the Future survey, 63% disapprove of the job Biden has done — with 51% strongly disapproving — while 36% approve of his performance. 

Biden’s disapproval rating among Hispanics in the state is a complete flip from the 2020 election results, which saw Biden take 61% of the Hispanic vote compared to just 38% for Trump. The president’s overall approval rating in New Mexico isn’t much better, as 41% of voters approve of Biden compared to 57% who disapprove, which is nearly identical to the national average, according to the poll. 

“Politically, New Mexico may be a small state, but these results spell big trouble for Joe Biden,” Power the Future Communications Director Larry Behrens told The Daily Wire. “The biggest issues on the minds of voters are the economy and crime, so it’s clear Joe Biden’s failures are the driving force behind why his numbers are taking a dive.” 

The poll, which surveyed 500 registered likely votes in the state between January 5-8, showed that the top issues for New Mexicans are the economy (24%), crime (23%), and education (15%). Immigration (12%) came in behind the environment (13%). 

Nearly half of Hispanic voters polled rated the state’s economy as “poor,” while another 33% said the economy was “only fair.” Meanwhile, 73% of all registered voters polled by Power the Future said the economy was either “poor” or “only fair.” 

“Families in New Mexico are just like families across the rest of the country, they are paying higher prices for everything so it’s no surprise they’ve decided Joe Biden needs to pay a political price too,” said Behrens. 

In the last presidential election, Biden beat Trump in New Mexico by nearly 100,000 votes, easily taking the state’s two largest cities, Albuquerque and Las Cruces. While Trump made gains with Hispanics in 2020 compared to 2016, Biden pulled enough Hispanic support to help propel him to victory, but current trends suggest Biden is losing both Hispanic and black support heading into the 2024 election. 


According to a USA Today/Suffolk poll released earlier this month, Biden is trailing Trump 39% to 34% among Hispanic voters nationally, and only 63% of black voters back Biden compared to 87% of the black vote he received in the 2020 election.
