Latinos May Be Swing Votes in 6 States Including Texas
by V. Lance Tarrance August 10, 2020
A new poll conducted recently (June 2020) of six Hispanic battleground states (which includes Texas and five others) for the 2020 Presidential election showed a great concern for the campaign of Democratic candidate Joe Biden. The concern centers on the fact that only 59% of Latinos said they intend to vote in November.
Since 73% of Latinos who were registered to vote had said in February that they were certain to vote, this “low rate”as reported by Latino Decisions polling firm is definitely warranted. The poll also showed less than 50% of Latino voters under 30 years of age said that they intended to vote. This was a big problem for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, in 2016, as well.
The bottom line is that the Hispanic vote in 2020 may not have the enthusiasm to go to the polls in large numbers for the presumptive Democratic candidate.
