AP-Univision Poll Shows Financial Concern of Hispanics, No Mention of Obama's Disastrous Economic Policies

No wonder Obama's playing the race card by declaring war on Arizona over their widely popular SB 1070 law. If he can't get Hispanics to seethe and moan over nonexistent racial profiling they might stop and wonder why they're mired in such desperate economic straits. And who knows, they might actually blame the guy responsible for their plight.

Naturally, AP goes into great detail here over the horrid employment numbers among Hispanics and manages to omit the words "Obama" and "Democrats" from a 22-paragraph story. You suppose if Hispanics had such huge unemployment numbers under a Republican administration the so-called media would fail to mention it?
For Hispanics in America, the ravaged economy has been a personal nightmare. While the stubborn downturn has rocked the country, an extensive Associated Press-Univision poll of the nation's Hispanics fleshes out the disproportionate toll on the fastest-growing minority group.

Nearly half or more express intense worry over losing their jobs, paying bills or saving for college, and similar numbers say they or a relative were unemployed recently — all of it worse than the general population's experience.

"There's nothing stable," said Alberto Alvarez, 49, a Cuban immigrant and construction worker in Miami. "Today there's a job. Tomorrow there's another. And the next, there's nothing."

More than 1,500 Latinos were interviewed for the poll, which was conducted as the nation's unemployment rate hovered near 10 percent and the economy struggled to recover from the worst recession since the Great Depression.

Hispanics are particularly vulnerable because they are less educated, have lower incomes and are likelier to be new to the United States than other groups.

The AP-Univision survey, also sponsored by The Nielsen Company and Stanford University, underscores how the those forces have combined to hit home for many Latinos. Six in 10 said it's hard for them to get ahead financially these days, including over one-quarter who said it's very tough.

Forty-five percent said they or a relative have lost a job since September, compared with 30 percent of the overall population who said yes to a similar question in an AP-GfK Poll in May.

In addition, 39 percent of Latinos, many facing financial woes, said someone in their family had skipped a doctor's visit recently despite thinking they needed attention. Thirty-one percent of the general population said they had foregone care when asked that same question last fall in an AP poll.
But I thought ObamaCare took care of all those concerns?

I eagerly await an AP story on the high unemployment numbers about blacks. It's pretty obvious Obama and his racist persons of hench at the NAACP would prefer to talk about anything other than the abysmal economic conditions facing that community, which probably explains their daily obsession over all things racial.
