Poll: Hispanics Back Kerry Over Bush...

by Blake Cook / July 22, 2004 7:21 AM PDT

WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry holds a 2-to-1 lead over President Bush among Hispanics, according to polling that suggests Republicans have not made inroads into a key demographic group that they've targeted this election.

A majority of Hispanics, 56 percent, said they disapprove of the way Bush is handling the war in Iraq.

Kerry and running mate John Edwards had the backing of 59 percent, while Bush and Vice President **** Cheney had 31 percent and independents Ralph Nader and Peter Camejo had 3 percent, according to the poll released Thursday by the Pew Hispanic Center and the Kaiser Family Foundation.

When voters were asked if they might change their vote for president, 29 percent of those who said they were not voting for Kerry said there was a chance they might support him. Only 13 percent of those not supporting Bush said there was a chance they might back him.

Bush's job approval rating among Hispanic voters was 35 percent, lower than his job approval among the general population in other polling.
