Record Number Of Hispanic Voters In 2020

For the first time, Hispanic voters are projected to be the largest minority group in the electorate come the 2020 elections. The Pew Research Center reports Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate, accounting for just over 13% of eligible voters – slightly more than blacks (32 million vs. 30 million).
There was a significant jump in Hispanic voters in the 2018 midterm election, helping Democrats regain control of the U.S. House of Representatives. In Connecticut, it’s much more difficult to pinpoint Latino voting participation, reports Ana Radelat, The Connecticut Mirror . But an analysis by the Connecticut Mirror determined that cities and towns in the state where Latinos make up 25% or more of the population all experienced a significant increase in voter turnout.
A record number of Hispanic voters traditionally has meant great news for the Democrats, but not so fast, reports Matt Lavietes, CNBC: There will be a record number of Hispanic voters in 2020, and that could have a major impact on Trump’s political fate
