One of the top data analysts in the nation delivered a series of results to MSNBC this week that is likely to devastate Democrats come November. It turns out that Hispanic voters are not too happy with the way they have been handling policy these last few years.
Data scientist Steve Kornacki joined the notoriously liberal network on Monday evening to deliver the bad news.
“It was one of the major stories to emerge from the 2020 elections, the shift we saw in the Hispanic vote,” Kornacki said. “Democrats still won the Hispanic vote in 2020, you can see, by 21 points, but that was down 17 points from 2016. Hillary Clinton won the Hispanic vote by 38, Joe Biden by just 21. And you know what? The trend seems to be continuing in 2022.”
So according to him, the left has been consistently losing the support of this key voting bloc ever since 2016, when Hillary Clinton was running. What’s interesting to note here is that the liberal media tried hard during that election cycle to paint the Republican candidate Donald Trump as racist against Hispanics. It looks like that effort failed.
“What you are looking at here, this is the average of every poll we have got out there that’s been taken over the last three months that looks at the Hispanic vote,” Kornacki continued. “And you put them all together, Hispanics are now voting Democratic by just 13 points, so from 38 to 21, now down in the 2022 midterm polling to a Democratic advantage of just 13 points.”
Not only have these recent presidential candidates clearly been costing the Democrats non-white votes, but Republicans just managed to seat the first ever Mexican-born woman in the US Congress when Rep Mayra Flores won a special election in a Hispanic majority district this year that has historically voted exclusively for Democrats.
What the MSNBC data analyst said is very intriguing and goes along with other trends showing minority voters becoming more and more upset with the Democrats for not proving them any value. Do you think the parties will switch in the near future and minority voters will begin picking Republicans again?
