The University of Houston/Latino Decisions Poll shows Latinos are very motivated to vote in 2020.

“When we look at Latinos, we see a very interesting point, in terms of 85% of Latinos saying they will certainly vote or at least probably will vote,” says University of Houston political science professor Jeronimo Cortina.

Cortina says the polling numbers come after a dramatic increase in Latino turnout in 2018, especially among young voters.

Forty-seven percent of all Texas voters said they prefer a Democrat for president, compared to 42% who favor Trump. Among Texas Latino voters, the president is even more unpopular: 69% said they favor a Democrat.

In a matchup between Trump and Democratic candidates, Bernie Sanders performed best against the president in polls.
