This week, Republican candidates for president appeared on the debate stage. Once again, Trump decided to skip this second of the primary debates. Many have criticized his decision to avoid debating with his fellow candidates.
Some warned this could hurt his chances, especially as he faces intense opposition in the form of criminal indictments. From all appearances, however, his absence from these debates has not hurt him. Recent GOP polling revealed Trump continues to lead his rivals by wide margins.
A new poll has been released, being touted as the largest of its kind so far. It gauged Trump’s standing with a critical voting bloc. And what we are learning could decide the primaries… and the general election.
From Fox News:
Among Hispanic Republicans, Trump maintains a strong lead, with 50% responding they would vote for him in the GOP primary, the poll found…
Despite four federal indictments, Trump is dominating among Hispanic voters and stands at 36%, a four-point increase from when he left office in January 2021, as per a previous Univision News poll.
Univision polled voters in the “largest Hispanic bipartisan primary public polling of the 2024 election cycle so far.” What they discovered is that Trump enjoys 50% support among Hispanic Republican. His closest rival is Ron DeSantis, who is polling at 12%.
On top of that, Trump enjoys 36% support among all Hispanic voters. That is a four-point increase from when he left office in January 2021.
This shift in support is significant, considering the group. Democrats appear to think Hispanic voters, much like other minority groups, largely support their party. Biden’s ongoing struggles seem to be hurting Hispanic support. The border crisis continues to be a problem for Democrats.
Many Hispanic Americans are opposed to the flood of illegal immigrants coming over the border. They support Republican policies to secure the border and prevent illegal entry into the country. Reports have come out in recent years and previously Democrat-majority communities in border towns are flipping to Republican, due to this crisis.
Trump is enjoying growing support among Hispanic Americans. This trend might continue as we approach the general election. Some experts claim the Hispanic voting bloc will be critical in future elections. If Trump continues to pull them away from the left, his odds of winning will go up.
- Donald Trump has 50% of the support of Republican Hispanics, according to a new report.
- Overall, Trump’s support among Hispanics has grown by four points since 2021.
