Latino voters continue supporting Obama

- Louis DeSipio, Chicano/Latino studies department chair and political science associate professor, is featured in La Opinión and El Diario La Prensa February 14, 2011
From La Opinión:
Despite the dire situation of the economy and the lack of immigration solutions, President Barack Obama's approval rating among Latino voters increased again to 70% after decreasing in mid-2010. But that support does not translate into automatic votes for 2012. The second part of a poll conducted by impreMedia and Latino Decisions also reveals that, although Latino voters will not automatically vote for Obama-only 43 percent are sure they will vote for him next year-doubts about the president and the Democrats are not turning into support for the Republicans.... For Louis De Sipio, a political science professor at UC Irvine, Latinos feel for Obama the same ambivalence as other voters after a little over two years of government. But once the election is nearer and an opponent appears, things "will become much clearer."
