*According to the most recent poll from the Gallop organization, Presdient Obama has stopped the decline in support among whites and Blacks but is still facing a drop in popularity because of a major falloff in support among the nation’s Hispanics.

During the January to May period, Latino support for the nation’s first African American president fell from 69 percent to 57 percent.

Hispanic support for the president tends to vary around the issue of reform of the nation’s immigration laws.

Obama appears to have disappointed or angered many Hispanics by failing to move aggressive on immigration reform and then recently bowing to pressure from conservatives and agreeing to send National Guard troops to the border with Mexico in a bid to stop the flow of illegal immigrants.
