WELL: Shock Poll: Trump Gains 19 Points with Latino Voters During Border Wall Shutdown. “In the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday, President Donald Trump may have suffered some among Republicans overall, but he saw a huge point gain in a different demographic breakdown, and an unexpected one by conventional wisdom. In early December, the poll had Trump’s approval rating among Latino adults at 31%. The results from the poll released Thursday show the president’s job approval among Latino adults at 50%. That is an astonishing 19 point swing. Prior results had less variance, with Latino approval numbers at 36% in their November 1st findings. It was 27% in the pollster’s mid-October survey. The January poll was conducted during the government shutdown over border wall funding, most notably. So the big swing among Latinos was while Trump and Democrats faced off over funding for the wall.”

Well, that’s a shock all right. I wonder what the Democrats’ internal polls show. They haven’t been acting like they think this shutdown thing is a winner for them, but wow. Or else this is an outlier, but if so it’s a big outlier.

UPDATE: I mean, how can Trump be gaining points against this kind of opposition? There must be something wrong with the poll.
