(ConservativeHub.com) – A Univision poll released recently has shown that former President Donald Trump has been gaining more supporters among Hispanic voters, according to Fox News.
The Univision poll refers to itself as the biggest Hispanic bipartisan primary public polling for the 2024 presidential election. The poll showed that 50 percent of Hispanic Republican voters have stated they would support Trump in the Republican primary. Twelve percent stated that they would cast their vote for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis while 9 percent expressed support for Vivek Ramaswamy.
Trump, who has been indicted four times, including two federal indictments, in the last year, still maintains a strong lead among Hispanic voters. Trump has managed to increase his position with Hispanic voters to 36 percent, making a four-point increase since January 2021 when he left the White House.
The Univision poll was conducted among 1,400 registered voters and 759 Republican voters.
In a recent statement, the Univision Noticias Director of Polling García-Rios said that this is the first national poll of its kind to clearly show the Hispanic community’s views and needs. He added that this poll acted as an opportunity to understand the Hispanic community’s sentiments regarding the presidential election.
Despite Trump’s position with Hispanic Republicans, if the presidential election took place today, 58 percent of Hispanic voters would support Biden while only 31 percent would back Trump. This showcases that the Hispanic voter base has not entirely shifted toward the party.
In the poll, the majority of Hispanic voters pointed out that one of the issues they were most concerned with was the economy, and that they believed the Democrats were more equipped to handle it.
