Poll: Among Hispanic Republicans, ‘Undecided’ leads Ron DeSantis

DeSantis CWA
Trump has 50% support, meanwhile.

Heading into the second GOP presidential debate, Florida’s Governor is struggling with a significant demographic group.

Among Hispanic Republicans, Ron DeSantis is in a distant second place to Donald Trump. And in the newest Univision Noticias poll, more voters are undecided than select DeSantis as their top choice.

Of the 759 Hispanics polled who anticipate voting in Republican nominating contests next year (of whom 600 are registered Republicans), DeSantis has 12% support, while 13% are undecided and 50% back the former President.

Other candidates are in single digits, including Vivek Ramaswamy (9%), Mike Pence (6%), Nikki Haley (4%), Chris Christie (2%) and others at 1% or less.

Despite Trump taking half of Hispanic Republicans in the Primary and having a 36% approval rating with the cohort, the polling suggests that wouldn’t mean much during the November election, as President Joe Biden would dominate, prevailing 58% to 31%.

Among Hispanic Democrats, Biden would prevail 87% vs. 9%. Among Hispanic Republicans, Trump would prevail 85% to 7%. Meanwhile, Biden would take 46% of independents, as compared to 24% for the former President.

DeSantis, meanwhile, does no better against Biden with Hispanic voters polled. Biden wins them here overall 57% to 28%.

Biden carries Democrats 86% to 10% against the Florida Governor. He also prevails with independents, 43% to 20%. DeSantis carries Republicans, 75% to 8%.

Methodological notes: “The Univision Noticias poll interviewed 1,401 Latino registered voters nationwide from September 11 – 19, 2023. Full sample estimates have a margin of error (MOE) of +/- 2.6 percentage points. The poll includes an oversample of 759 Latino Republicans (MOE +/- 3.6 points). This oversample is drawn from those who indicated that they intend to vote in Republican primary contests in 2024. The final sample was weighted to match the known demographic characteristics of Latino registrants based on data from the U.S. Census CPS as well as from national voter files.”

    Good evening America,
    I, Earl Pitts American, have recently given top notch free life changing advice out to our beloved readers both conservative and liberal.
    But alas it seems I forgot someone who may be showing signs of political fatigue.
    So Here You Go:
    This is for you, America’s Govornor, Relax Your Sphincter Sir. It appears you may be experiencing an un-due pucker factor over a total non-issue Sir.
    When our beloved Hispanic voters go to the polls to cast their vote for POTUS they will be thinking exactly this:
    1. A vote for Trump is a vote for an easeing of abortion laws Nation-Wide. Resulting directly in my Hispanic vote empowering and enabling the outright genocide/bloody killing of God’s gift to the world the unborn child for which I will surely spend my eternity in eternal damnation.
    2. A vote for Desantis is a vote to keep in place the various 50 States remaining in control of adortion. Which will surely protect as many as possable of Gods gift to the world, the unborn baby. This voting choice will allow me to spend eternity singing praises to God’s Glory in the Celestial Beauty of Heaven Above.
    So here’s to you Ron Desantis there is Zero reason to fret and pucker over your loyal Hispanic voters nation wide as they got your back Sir.
    So here from Earl to Ron goes out a special “Relax Your Sphincter Sir: 👍 you are worrying over nothing.

    Why don’t you do statewide registered voters of at least 800-1000?

    We know why cherry picker fake polls.

    Desantis will win Florida. We love him. We’ve gone through a lot of disaster here and he has been here for us on top of protecting our children from being sexualized in grade school.

    We see you. And when Desantis wins. We will stop seeing you.
