Trump’s gains among Latino voters shouldn’t come as a surprise. Here’s why.
President Trump’s record on the economy (before the pandemic) and his law-and-order rhetoric appealed to many Latino voters in Florida and Texas, helping him outperform expectations with Latino voters in those states. President Trump and his campaign focused specifically on cultivating and growing support for him among the Latino electorate in South Florida. Latino support for Republican candidates and policies is not new, even if the Democratic Party still tends to win a majority of Latino voters’ support during elections.
