It seems that the Democratic Party’s grip on Hispanic voters is loosening up and members of this critical voting bloc are slipping through the party’s fingers. This gradual shift underscores the myriad of problems the left is facing as other demographics who were solidly in their camp are starting to reconsider their allegiance.
A study conducted by Catalist, a political firm working with Democratic candidates, showed that Hispanics swung in former President Donald Trump’s favor in 2020 more so than it did in 2016. Trump increased his support among Hispanics by eight points, which is a significant jump. There seems to be a growing sentiment among this group that the Democrats have been taking them for granted.
