Democrats are losing Latinos —big time.
According to a report from Just The News, recent offensive comments from Democrat leaders, including FLOTUS’ “breakfast tacogate” and Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisting Ron DeSantis needs migrants to “pick the crops,” have resulted in an erosion of Latino support for Democratic candidates up and down the ballot.
In a recent NBC News/Telemundo poll, 54% of Latino voters want Democrats to maintain control of Congress in the midterms, while 33% want to see Republicans in control.
“The results show continuing erosion in the Democrats’ lead among Hispanic voters in the poll in the three election cycles since 2016,” Just The News reports. “Democrats led by 38 points in the 2016 election, followed by 34 points in 2018 and 26 in 2020, before seeing their lead shaved to 21 in the current cycle.”
According to Nate Hochman over at The National Review, “Latinos are less loyal to the Democratic Party than they once were, but they’re still not sure about Republicans. That means the rapidly growing voting bloc is increasingly up for grabs — but it’s also a warning to the GOP to not declare victory too soon. ”
