And you think President Barack Obama has problems?
In Puerto Rico, Republican pro-statehood Governor Luis Fortuño is feeling the pain, with the release of a new poll sponsored by WAPA-TV, the island’s largest TV network.
The findings were quite telling, as Fortuño — a Fox News media darling, a potential Vice Presidential candidate for the Republican nomination (memo: he would have to move to the mainland for this to happen), and a staunch loyalist to the pro-statehood cause — faces a recent credit downgrade and mounting economic problems for the island.
The following points are made in the video:
- Fortuño’s disapproval ratings span all socioeconomic groups, which bodes poorly for the Governor, given than his base would naturally come from a higher socioeconomic class.
- Fortuño also has the same disapproval ratings between men and women.
