Biden and Democrats lose grip on Latino and Hispanic voters

Democrats no longer have an advantage with Latino and Hispanic voters when they were asked whether they would support their local Democratic or Republican congressional candidate if the midterm elections were held today, according to a Wall Street Journal poll this week.

Last year, more than 60% told pollsters they would cast a ballot for their House Democratic contender, researchers found. This month, 37% said they would make the same choice, while the same percentage would back the Republican. Roughly 1 in 5 remained undecided.

Republicans are undermining Democrats' stranglehold on the Latino and Hispanic vote as Biden's Justice Department sues states such as Georgia over its election integrity laws and Texas over its redistricting proposal, both of which it argues discriminate against minorities, according to Suffolk University Political Research Center director David Paleologos.
