Latinos May Be Swing Votes in 6 States Including Texas

A new poll conducted recently (June 2020) of six Hispanic battleground states (which includes Texas and five others) for the 2020 Presidential election showed a great concern for the campaign of Democratic candidate Joe Biden. The concern centers on the fact that only 59% of Latinos said they intend to vote in November.

Since 73% of Latinos who were registered to vote had said in February that they were certain to vote, this "low rate"as reported by Latino Decisions polling firm is definitely warranted. The poll also showed less than 50% of Latino voters under 30 years of age said that they intended to vote.  This was a big problem for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, in 2016, as well.

The bottom line is that the Hispanic vote in 2020 may not have the enthusiasm to go to the polls in large numbers for the presumptive Democratic candidate.

Poll: Americans Support Legal Status for Those Who Came to US Illegally as Children

Comment by V. Lance Tarrance, TLC Chief Strategist and Pollster

On June 18th, the Supreme Court granted permanent legal status to immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

This particular political and humanitarian issue, which has been a political football between the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch, has now been decided by the Supreme Court in favor of DACA but by a close 5 to 4 decision.

However, in a recent PEW study conducted a few days before the Supreme Court decision, the public was in favor of a DACA law by 74%, or 3 out of every 4 Americans. About 90% of Hispanics also favored granting legal status to immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

Estimates are that this favorable Supreme Court decision will affect about 650,000 immigrants with protection from deportation. There could be a second step of permanent legal status for all law-abiding undocumented illegals on the football playing fields of the near future.
