Democrat Hispanics outnumber Republicans by 2-1 according to a new Gallup poll.

Among Latinos born in the United States and whose parents were born here, 64 percent told the pollsters they are Democrats or lean Democratic, while 30 percent are Republicans or lean Republican and 6 percent are independents.

Of those born in the United States with at least one of their parents born abroad, 57 percent identify with the Democrats with 34 percent saying they are pro-GOP, and 6 percent are independents.

As for foreign-born Hispanics, 57 percent are Democrats or lean that way, 25 percent are Republicans, and 16 percent are independents.

"This significant Democratic advantage among Hispanics, regardless of whether they are U.S.-born or immigrants, suggests that simply waiting for Hispanics to assimilate will not be a successful strategy for Republicans hoping to capture a greater percentage of the Hispanic vote," writes Frank Newport and Joy Wilke of Gallup.

The poll of 1,000 Hispanics was conducted June 13 to July 5.
