Generation Opportunity recently commissioned a poll with the polling company, inc./WomanTrend (April 16 – 22, 2011, +/- 4% margin of error) and highlights some of the results below.
•By nearly a 3:1 ratio, Hispanic young adults prefer "reducing federal spending" (69%) to "raising taxes on individuals" (27%) in order to balance the federal budget.
•70% of Hispanic young adults would decrease federal spending if given the chance to set America's fiscal priorities.
•A 57%-majority of Hispanics agree that "if taxes on business profits were reduced, companies would be more likely to hire."
•In a separate question, a 56%-majority concurred "the economy grows best when individuals are allowed to create businesses without government interference."
•61% indicated their agreement with "American Exceptionalism" – described as an ideal of freedom and democracy exclusive and unique to the United States.
In the end, our country will go down one of three paths:
Martial law and austerity.
Raising taxes on the wealthy and corporations.

Hispanic and Latino Americans tend to be very Democratic, especially the youth, so it came as a surprise to me that a poll shows such stunning results. It seems that the Hispanic and Latino youth are ready to release the entrepreneurial spirit of themselves and their fellow Americans to invest in future economic growth and create jobs. They desire the government to cut spending rather than tax more, allow businesses to operate without excessive red tape, and have a general sense of desiring a future in which they shape for themselves rather than let a few bought-off politicians in a distant city shape it for them.
If this trend continues it could mean either Democrats become more fiscally conservative or Hispanic-Latinos begin to move towards the Republicans, perhaps a combination of both.
