Hispanic voters are with Ron.
According to a new poll released by Mason-Dixon for Telemundo and LX News, 71% of Cuban Americans in the Sunshine State supported Governor Ron DeSantis decision to fly southern border migrants to liberal bastion Martha’s Vineyard, with 52% of Hispanic voters born outside the U.S. also supporting the move.
Hispanic voters also support DeSantis over Democratic challenger Charlie Crist.
From NBC News:
Overall, DeSantis leads Crist by 51% to 44% statewide among those voters, and 56% approve of the job the governor is doing, compared with 41% who don’t, the survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy, found.
DeSantis lost Hispanic voters by 10 percentage points when he was elected in 2018, exit polls showed, and if he wins them Nov. 8, it would all but ensure his victory in a state where Democrats traditionally need to rely on solid support from Hispanic and Black voters to overcome Republican advantages with white voters.
Florida Latinos have shifted rightward since 2018 as Republicans tied their opponents to Democratic Socialists like Sen. Bernie Sandersand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — a potent message for voters who fled leftist regimes or violence in Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Colombia.
