Hispanics Threaten Biden’s Chances in This Deep Blue State

There are some states which are always reliable for Democrats and Republicans. New Mexico has always been one of them, but may not be much longer.

The reason is simple. Hispanics are turning away from him in record numbers. Surprisingly for Democrats, illegal immigration is a huge issue along with the economy.

Bidenomics is not popular and illegal immigration is something that is affecting all border states. In polling it is revealed that 63% of Hispanics disapprove of his job performance including 50% who strongly disapprove of his performance.

In 2020 Biden allegedly received 61% of the Hispanic voters to Trump’s 38%. 45% of eligible voters in New Mexico are Hispanic, outnumbering even whites. That does not bode well for Joe Biden in 2024.

Power the Future Communications Director Larry Behrens told The Daily Wire:

“Politically, New Mexico may be a small state, but these results spell big trouble for Joe Biden. 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.” 

“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.”

From The Daily Wire

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. 

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.

  1. Sure! As New Mexico continues to pass more & more draconian anti Second Amendment gun laws. The public might be anti Biden but they are still big government Leftists who run the state.

  2. People that ‘vote’ for any Democrat are masochists, as well as mentally challenged. They flog themselves with whips until the blood flows, enjoying the pain! Like Einstein’s definition of INSANITY, “doing the same thing over and over….,” they vote for the same idiocy without fail.
