Half of Hispanics in the United States say their situation has deteriorated in the past year, and 62% say they are unhappy with how the country is going today — the highest levels since the Great Recession, a new Pew Research Center study says.

The big picture: Hispanics are the largest minority group in the U.S. Two-thirds of Hispanics consider the Trump administration's policies harmful, higher than those of either Barack Obama (15%) or George W. Bush (41%).

By the numbers
  • About 60% of registered Hispanic voters are more enthusiastic to vote in the midterm elections in November.
  • 50% of Hispanics say their situation in the U.S. has worsened over the past year, up from 32% since Trump won the 2016 presidential election.
  • More than 29 million Latinos are eligible to vote, up from 25 million in 2014, per Pew.

The other side: Nearly 25% of Hispanics identify as Republican or right-leaning. Within the group, nearly 60% approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after sheltering with maskless colleagues during last week's deadly Capitol riot. But he did not specify whether his diagnosis was connected to the siege.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
