LA OPINION/UNIVISION POLL HISPANIC VOTERS
LA OPINION/UNIVISION POLL HISPANIC VOTERS LOS ANGELES, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- La Opinion, the nation's
leading Spanish-language daily newspaper, and Univision, the premier Spanish-language television network, have completed the fourth in a series of seven polls to be conducted this election year.
The latest poll, conducted July 6-9, surveyed 518 Hispanic voters nationally. Margin of error is +/- 4.4 percent. Significant findings include a relatively low level of support for Bill Clinton among those polled, 56 percent of whom were Democrats. Only 37 percent of those polled indicated they would vote for Clinton if the election were held today. A solid 30 percent would vote for George Bush, and a revealing 23 percent would vote for Ross Perot. It seems that Perot has pulled a significant number of voters from Clinton, given the high percentage of Democrats among Hispanic voters polled. Another important indication of this poll is Hispanic voters' disillusionment with the Democratic party. The majority of those polled felt the Democratic party has abandoned its principles and sold out to powerful economic interests. Sixty-eight percent of the 518 respondents felt that the Hispanic community is being taken for granted by the presidential candidates and that Hispanic issues are not receiving adequate attention. Another important issue raised was that Hispanic voters, on a national level, are relatively optimistic in terms of the urban crisis. Seventy-seven percent of those polled feel there is a solution to the crisis; and 51 percent will support increased taxes in order to support a multibillion dollar urban program. More Univision/La Opinion polls are scheduled throughout this election year.
