A new poll shows that a startling 62% of Hispanics feel they are better off under President Donald Trump than former President Barack Obama:
The financial situation of voters could be a major reason for the improvement in Trump’s approval rating.
When asked if they (voters) were better or worse off financially than they were two years ago 42% responded better off, while 26% said worse off.
Males appear to be doing better in a Trump economy than females: 49% of males reported doing better, while 21% said they were doing worse.
Alternatively 36% of females reported they were better off, while 30% said they were doing worse.
Perceptions of the financial situation varied by party and race, Democrats had the lowest improvement at 33%, with 32% doing worse.
Among Hispanics, a distinct majority – 62% believed they were better off, while 25% thought they were worse off.
The poll also shows other warning signals for Democrats as the mid-term elections approach:
Overall, voters prefer a capitalist economic system over a socialist system 54% to 24%.
Party preference shows a clear demarcation on this issue.
Those who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 support a Socialist economic system 37% to 34%, while those who voted for Trump supported a capitalist system 76% to 9%.
Those 18-34 were split on the two economic systems, with 42% preferring a Capitalist system and 41% a Socialist system.
This differed from the other age groups where the difference in support for Capitalism was between 38 and 42 percentage points, as compared to 1 point for 18-34 year olds.
The abortion issue appears to be very important in determining how a majority (53%) of voters will cast their ballots in November; another 23% said the issue of abortion was somewhat important to their vote in 2018. The legality of the issue among these voters is not as clear.
The survey found that 14% of voters want abortions always to be illegal.
28% believe abortion should be illegal most of the time, but with exceptions, and 34% said abortion should be legal most of the time, but with exceptions.
24% believed abortion should be legal at all the time without exception.
As expected, the issue breaks by party lines with Democrats most in support of the legality of abortions at 35%, followed by Independents at 23% and Republicans 14%.
Interestingly, Hispanics are most supportive of a total ban of abortion.
The President tweeted about the poll:
A recent Emerson College ePoll said that most Americans, especially Hispanics, feel that they are better off under President Trump than they were under President Obama.

Democrats are also in the danger zone with the African-American community as black support for President Trump is skyrocketing.
It turns out the era of politics driven by racial identity may be over. With Barack Obama now in America’s collective rear-view mirror – and his race-motivated politics behind us, maybe we can get back to becoming one America.
Support for President Trump in the African American community stands at 16 percent.
While these sound like dismal numbers, they’re actually historically high. Shockingly so, even, especially considering Trump only received 8 percent of the black vote in November 2016.
An equally good number for the President is the “not-sure” rating among blacks.
When African Americans were asked whether they approved, disapproved or were “not sure,” one in ten were in the latter category. That raises the possibility that Trump’s approval could rise to 26 percent among a minority population that typically votes almost exclusively for Democrats.
Clearly everyone loves winning.
Thank you President Trump!
