Nine days before the election, Latino voters are growing

According to him Pew Research Center, there are 34.5 million eligible Latino voters in this midterm election. Research shows an increase of nearly five million eligible voters since the last such election, making Latinos the fastest-growing racial group of voters in the country.

The study shows that registered Latino voters are even more likely to support the Democratic candidate than the Republican in their race for the House of Representatives. But during the 2020 election, experts say then-President Donald Trump won about 40% of these voters.

“Whether the Republican Party maintains those gains, or whether we see some Hispanics returning to the Democratic Party, that’s really one of the big questions that a lot of people are asking,” said Jens Manuel Krogstad, editor of the Pew Research Center.

The researchers are also looking at where undecided voters will fall. “This is about one in five Hispanic voters still undecided,” Krogstad said. “There are a lot of Hispanics telling us they haven’t made up their minds yet.”

“Hispanics have traditionally tended to have lower voter turnout rates than eligible black and white voters,” he said. “In previous midterm elections the Hispanic voter turnout rate has been about a third.”

The majority of Latino voters are in California, Texas and Florida. But experts document that there has been a growth in North Carolina and Georgia.
