President Joe Biden is experiencing a significant decline in Hispanic support in New Mexico, a state he won by a 10-point margin in 2020 with substantial backing from this crucial demographic, according to recent polling data shared with The Daily Wire.

Data from Power the Future and Public Opinion Strategies reveals a notable surge in the president’s disapproval rating among Hispanics in New Mexico since taking office.

Among Hispanics surveyed, 63% disapprove of Biden’s job performance, with a substantial 51% expressing strong disapproval, while only 36% approve.

This drastic shift in Hispanic sentiment represents a complete reversal from the 2020 election results when Biden secured 61% of the Hispanic vote in the state, compared to Trump’s 38%.

Biden’s overall approval rating in New Mexico also faces challenges, with only 41% of voters expressing approval and 57% disapproving. These figures closely mirror the national average, as indicated by the poll.

The implications of these findings for Biden in New Mexico are substantial, according to Larry Behrens, Communications Director for Power the Future.

He emphasized that the predominant concerns among voters—economic issues and crime—underscore how Biden’s perceived failures drive the decline in his approval ratings.

The survey, conducted between January 5-8 and encompassing 500 registered likely voters in the state, revealed that the primary concerns for New Mexicans are the economy (24%), crime (23%), and education (15%). Immigration (12%) ranked lower than the environment (13%).

Significantly, almost half of Hispanic voters polled characterized the state’s economy as “poor,” while an additional 33% deemed it “only fair.” Among all registered voters, 73% concurred that the economy was “poor” or “only fair.”

Behrens noted the resonance of economic concerns among families in New Mexico, highlighting that rising prices lead them to conclude that Biden must face political consequences for these challenges.

In the previous presidential election, Biden secured victory over Trump in New Mexico by almost 100,000 votes, carrying the state’s two largest cities, Albuquerque and Las Cruces.

Despite Trump making gains with Hispanics in 2020 compared to 2016, Biden garnered sufficient Hispanic support to secure victory. However, the latest trends indicate a potential erosion of support from both Hispanic and black communities as the 2024 election approaches.

A recent USA Today/Suffolk poll unveiled this month demonstrated Biden trailing Trump 39% to 34% among Hispanic voters nationally.

Additionally, only 63% of black voters are backing Biden, a notable decrease from the 87% support he received in the 2020 election. These figures point to challenges for Biden in maintaining the diverse coalition that contributed to his previous electoral success.
