Are Cruz & Rubio Tea Party Ties Attracting Hispanic Voters?

20120829_marco-rubio_33
Men, women, whites, blacks, young voters, medium-aged voters, older voters, college grads, college dropouts, high school grads, high school dropouts, Republicans, Democrats, independents, conservatives, moderates, liberals: a new poll from the Pew Research Center finds that support for the Tea Party has fallen among every one of those groups.
What about Hispanics? Support is growing for the Tea Party.
Pew compared its Oct. 9-13 telephone survey, conducted more than a week after the government shutdown showdown engineered by Tea Party-backed Republicans, with results from identical questions asked in June. Across the board, support for the Tea Party was down in the October survey.
Overall, the public’s view of the Tea Party saw “favorable” fall from 37 percent in June to 30 percent in October, and “unfavorable” climb from 45 percent in June to 49 percent in October.
The October survey contacted 1,504 adults in all 50 states and Pew reports a margin of error of 2.9 percent for the overall results, and larger margin of errors for the more finely-tuned slices of data.
And among those finely-turned slices were numbers on the one group that bucked the trend:
Hispanics still were solidly in the camp that were unfavorable toward the Tea Party, but the favorable numbers climbed.
