Poll Finds out What Latino Voters Want in Presidential Candidate

UnidosUS, the United State’s largest nonprofit advocacy organization,
has recently released its 2020 National Latino Electorate Survey. The Survey
was based on a poll conducted by Latino Decisions to measure Latino sentiment
toward the parties, and gain insight into what Latinos want to see in a presidential
candidate along with what issues Latinos prioritize. The survey measured 1,854
Latino registered voters between June1-13, 2019.
33% of voters said that speaking Spanish was “very important”
in a presidential candidate, while a whopping 76% claimed that a candidate that
“values diversity and brings people together” was very important.
“Our community’s voters are sending a strong message:
candidates matter, positions matter, and meaningful outreach is essential.
Latino voters continue to show that they care about substance,” said Clarissa
Martínez de Castro, UnidosUS Deputy Vice President for Policy and Advocacy.
“Historically, a substantial number of Latino voters have been potential swing
voters not bound by party affiliation. But it is also clear that there is a
shift away from the GOP, as the Republican party has come to be seen as
embracing or leading the charge on anti-immigrant and anti-Latino rhetoric and
actions,” she said.

The poll coincided with the 2019 annual UnidosUS conference
which was from August 3-6 in San Diego, California. During the conference, UnidosUS
spoke live with presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Amy
Klobuchar, Julián Castro, and Joe Biden on issues facing Latino voters. The
presentation was livestreamed in English an Spanish in conjunction with
Telemundo. While UnidosUS’s promotional materials omitted advertising , Julián
Castro, looking at the comment section of the livestream, Castro seems to have gone
over well with at-home viewers, with many comments singing his praises.
