Republicans are now more preferred to control the House and Senate by Hispanic voters than Democrats, according to the results of a survey published on Wednesday.
The House GOP gained the support of 46% of Hispanic registered voters, compared to 42% among Democrats, per Quinnipiac University, which conducted the poll. This 4-point lead in the House, along with a 1-point lead in the Senate, marks the first time that Republicans have overtaken Democrats in plurality support among Hispanic voters in this election cycle, per research by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“Democrats have spent decades taking the Hispanic vote for granted while pushing for failed policies on issues ranging from the economy to education, to crime and the border,” said Nicole Morales, a Republican National Committee spokeswoman.
Other polls, by contrast, have shown Democrats with significant leads, although they were sampled earlier. In September, Pew Research placed Democrats ahead of Republicans by 25 points, a lead consistent across other major polls.
The party’s gain of Hispanic support comes after a sustained push for voter engagement with Hispanic communities. Since 2020, the GOP has opened 21 Hispanic community centers across the country, mostly in major cities, with dedicated staff to turn out Hispanic and Latino voters, according to a list provided by the RNC to the DCNF.
