Latino job approval of President Trump has increased by 20 percent since early December–a noteworthy jump considering the current government shutdown over funding for a wall on the southern border.

A new PBS Newshour, NPR and Marist poll finds that 51 percent of Latino adults “strongly approve” or  “approve” of the job President Trump is doing–up from 31 percent in December.

Townhall.com reports:

The poll was taken from January 10-13, 2019 and asked “Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president? [And, would you say you strongly approve/disapprove of the job he is doing or just approve/disapprove?]”

Twenty-nine percent of Latinos responded “strongly approve,” with another 22 percent who “approve.” The combined number puts his approval at 51 percent. Nearly half, 41 percent, “strongly disapprove.”
