National poll of Latino voters—priorities, values, policy perspectives, and views of and outreach from the parties.
In a period that has brought the shock of Uvalde, restrictions on women’s rights, and climate-related destruction, this large poll of 2,750 Latino voters found that their priorities have experienced a seismic shift, with gun violence/crime and abortion rising dramatically, while putting an exclamation point on the rising cost of living and jobs, traditionally at the top of this community’s long-standing concerns. While not at the top, Immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship continues to receive very strong support, including executive action if Congress does not act. Over half of Latino voters say they could not back a candidate supported or endorsed by White supremacist/nationalists groups. Both parties remain underwater compared to previous peak levels of support from Hispanic voters, putting a premium on the parties to address their chronic under-engagement with these voters.
