Washington, Sep 10 (EFE).- President Barack Obama's approval rating among Hispanics has fallen to 47 percent, down from 62 percent in April 2013, a new NBC/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll shows.

In addition, Hispanics expressing their disagreement with how Obama is doing his job rose from 30 percent in April 2013 to 39 percent now.

And 56 percent of the Hispanics surveyed said that the country is on the wrong track, while among the rest of the population that figure is 67 percent.

One of the main concerns for Hispanics is immigration reform, which has been stalled in Congress and suffered a new setback this week when Obama announced that he was postponing the executive measures he had announced he was going to take before the summer's end to fix the country's immigration system.

A sizable majority of Hispanics, 77 percent, think that immigration reform should include a path to citizenship for undocumented migrants, a slight decline from the 82 percent who said they felt that way in April 2013.

Nevertheless, and despite the frustration over the legislative logjam on reform, Latinos continue to feel that the Democratic Party is better than the Republican Party - by a margin of 41 percent to 19 percent - at dealing with immigration matters.

Moreover, 66 percent of Hispanics say that the Republicans' insistence on strengthening border security is an "excuse" not to move forward with the reform.

With regard to a potential increased U.S. military intervention to deal with the threat of the Islamic State, Hispanics are more cautious than the rest of the population with 49 percent of Latinos supporting such action compared to 61 percent of Americans in general who feel that it would be in the national interest.

The survey, conducted on Sept. 3-7 among Latino registered voters, has an error margin of plus or minus 3.1 percent. EFE
