    A new national poll suggests that Hispanics in the U.S. favor Christopher Columbus more than President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

    Conducted by WPA Intelligence, a conservative polling firm that collaborated with Visto Media on behalf of Latino advocacy group Bienvenido, the national poll surveyed 1,086 respondents about which high-profile personalities Hispanic communities approved or disapproved of in an era where liberal politicians and activists propagate ongoing efforts to cancel the 15th-century Italian navigator who set out on a historic voyage in 1492.

    "When you juxtapose Christopher Columbus' popularity among Hispanics with the misguided efforts to 'cancel' him by progressive activists and politicians, it shows how out of touch the far left is with our community," Abraham Enriquez, Bienvenido president, said.

    Progressives have been pushing for the cancellation of Christopher Columbus in recent decades, deeming his journey to sail from the Spanish port of Palos de la Frontera on behalf of Queen Isabella I and King Ferdinand II to explore Western civilization as an act of genocide of the Indigenous people.

    "The reality is that most Hispanics, especially those who are immigrants, view Columbus quite favorably," Enriquez added.

    While educational institutes, liberal politicians, and anti-American extremists push the narrative that the Italian explorer embarked on an expedition to merely rape, pillage, and enslave the West, Hispanic communities refuse to buy the message.

    According to the poll the partnering groups ran earlier this month, 53% of Hispanics view Columbus favorably, while 24% view him unfavorably, yielding a net favorability of 29 points. Meanwhile, 49% percent of Hispanics have a positive opinion of Biden, while 42% have a negative view of him, resulting in a net favorability of seven points.

    On the other hand, Harris was viewed by Hispanics as the least popular between Biden and Columbus, with a net favorability rating of four points, as 45% of Hispanics say they have a favorable view of her and 41% view her unfavorably.

    The poll also suggested that Hispanics' views on Columbus varied by age and whether they were born on U.S. soil or in another country. The survey says the older generations born outside the nation are more likely to view the explorer favorably than those born in the United States.

    Among 18-39 years-old Latinos, 45% have a favorable view of Columbus, while 30% view him unfavorably. Among 40-59 year-olds, 54% have a favorable opinion of him and 29% unfavorable. However, among Hispanics 60 and older, 71% view him favorably and just 17% unfavorably, the poll indicates.

    "It is not surprising that the same people who think Hispanics like being called 'Latinx' have also assumed Hispanics are offended by Christopher Columbus - and got it completely wrong, again," Conor Maguire, Principal and Managing Director of WPA Intelligence, said. "In the future, maybe progressives should just ask Hispanics how they feel about issues?"

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
