TLC PAC Releases Pre-Election Latino Poll

September 29, 2020     

Texas Latino Conservatives recently conducted a live-phone survey of 500 independent and Republican Latino-registered voters in Texas. This is the first poll of its type and was conducted August 28 – September 3. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 4.2%

Key Findings
Covid -19 is the top issue for Texas Latino voters: 31% of the voters polled identified Covid-19 as the most important issue that comes to mind when voting in this election – crime and jobs followed with 15% and 12% respectively.

Texas Latino voters have an overwhelmingly positive view of the Texas government’s response to Covid-19. 75% of respondents approved of the State’s response to Covid-19.

Latino voters in Texas are extremely interested to vote in this election.
Over 90% responded as “excited to vote,” almost one third higher than the initial projections for this group of voters.

Of voters who stated they were unlikely to vote, 30% said that they would be more likely to vote if vote-by-mail was an option.

Persuading issues for Latino voters are the cost of healthcare, jobs, and property taxes: When polled together with other relevant topics, medical costs and jobs were cited as the most relevant issues.

To the respondents, traditional social issues were seen as less persuasive: Our surveyed audience (43% Catholic, 28% Evangelical), identified jobs and healthcare as more persuasive.

The poll was conducted by The National Survey Research Group – 5586 Main Street Williamsville, NY 14221
