According to a Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) poll released on Friday, half of Hispanics identify with the Democratic Party, while only 15 percent identify with the GOP.

Forty-three percent of Hispanics indicated that the phrase "cares about people like you" better describes the Democratic Party, while 12 percent felt this way about the GOP.

"I think the poll clearly shows that Republicans have both a brand issue and an issue problem," said Robert P. Jones, head of PRRI. "I think both of those things are going to have to get addressed to make progress connecting with Hispanics in America."
