PHILADELPHIA — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would sweep Republican Donald Trump among Latino voters in 12 “swing” or “battleground” states that could define the Nov. 8 election, according to a survey made public Wednesday July 28, Notimex reported.
The survey by Latino Victory Fund and Latino Decisions shows that Hispanics in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin favor the Democratic platform over the Republican.
On a range of issues, Latino voters are more aligned with the Democratic political agenda. They see Hillary Clinton as the best candidate to address the economy, foreign policy and education, said the director of Latino Decisions, Sylvia Manzano.
64 percent of Latinos surveyed believe that the issues that are most important to them coincide with the Democratic Party.
Regarding migration, 82 percent support immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship, keeps families together and allows millions of workers out of the shadows.
While the Democratic Political Platform supports immigration reform with a special way to naturalization of more than 11 million undocumented immigrants, Republicans propose to create a wall along the border with Mexico.
In weapons policy, 95 percent of Latinos support more regulation, 67 percent want a ban on assault weapons and 58 percent want new laws.
Also mostly they believe that Clinton would be the better candidate for more affordable college education, to represent the United States in the world, to choose the next justice for the Supreme Court and to reform the criminal justice system.
Conducted from July 18 to 22 among 800 Latino adults, the survey is relevant because it takes the pulse of the opinion of Hispanic voters in the handful of states that could determine the winner in the elections on November 8.
Polls of Latino voters have varied slightly recently, though they’ve tended to peg Trump’s support at somewhere between a fifth and a quarter of that community. A Pew Research survey from early July, for example, was somewhat more favorable to Trump than Latino Decisions: It found Trump winning 24 percent of Latino voters. But a Univision poll in mid-July was less rosy for the tycoon. That network—which Trump sued last year for $500 million—pegged Trump’s Latino support at only 19 percent.
It is estimated that over 13 million Latino voters will participate in elections on November 8, but an additional 12 million are not registered to vote.
