“The national poll was conducted by WPA Intelligence in collaboration with Visto Media on behalf of Bienvenido. The study interviewed 1,086 Hispanics in the U.S. October 4-6, 2022 with a nationally representative sample that was calibrated to Census data to ensure its accuracy,” according to an infographic posted by Bienvenido.

The organization describes itself on Twitter as a “non-profit uplifting Hispanic communities through classic American values.”

“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,” principal and managing Director of WPA Intelligence Conor Maguire noted, according to the Daily Wire. “In the future, maybe progressives should just ask Hispanics how they feel about issues?”

“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,” Bienvenido president Abraham Enriquez said, according to the outlet. “The reality is that most Hispanics, especially those who are immigrants, view Columbus quite favorably.”
