According to a recent survey, Latino voters in Florida favor Republican Governor Ron DeSantis over Democrat Charlie Crist by 7% in the state’s gubernatorial race next month.
In addition, the Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy-conducted Telemundo/LX News survey indicated that Latinos backed DeSantis over Crist by a significant 51% to 44% margin and awarded DeSantis a 56% approval rating.
The survey also indicated that 50% of Latino voters backed DeSantis’ idea to send illegal immigrants to liberal Martha’s Vineyard, while 43% opposed it.
The new poll comes after DeSantis lost the majority of the Latino vote in the 2018 election, meaning that his new policies have actually significantly increased his popularity with latinos in the state.
Many Hispanics have trended rightward nationwide, especially in the years after the 2020 presidential election.
The new poll comes as Democrats across the country have continued to struggle as the midterm elections come ever closer while the part continues to poll poorly.
During the debate on Tuesday night DeSantis described Crist as a worn ‘out old donkey’ that he said he was going to ‘put out to pasture.’
