About House Dems’ struggles w/ Hispanic voters

November 17, 2023

Democrats’ increasing struggles with Hispanic voters are well documented.

However, it “could impact campaigns – especially those for the House – in more unexpected places, from eastern Pennsylvania to central Virginia to upstate New York,” according to a new report from The Messenger.

Take a look at why:

“The national average for Latino voting-age populations in a House district is around 13%. While Latino voters in targeted districts in Texas, Florida, and California make up well over 50% of the voting-age population, districts like Pennsylvania’s 7th, Virginia’s 7th, Connecticut’s 5th, and New York’s 18th all have a higher Hispanic voter share than the national average, making the Democrats who represent those district more susceptible to swings in Latino support.”
