President Trump has seen support slip in most demographics during the month-long government shutdown, but one key group’s support has risen dramatically: Hispanics.

According to an NPR/PBS poll, the President’s approval rating among Hispanics has now reached 50percent, a nineteen point jump since December when it sat at just 31 percent.

Trump tweeted on Sunday that this is mostly due to his desire for a border wall.

Despite this favorable poll for the president, the same poll show his favorability as a whole is slipping as the shutdown drags on.

His rating sits at just 39 percent approve, 53 percent disapprove. A red alram for the White House could be that suburban men’s support of Trump has dropped from 51-39 to just 42-48. That is a net drop of -18 points.
