The NRCC released the results of its most recent battleground survey on Feb. 18, a deep dive on a key target group: Hispanic voters.

According to 2020 exit polls, Hispanic voters nationwide voted Democrat over Republican in congressional races by a wide margin (63%-36%). That advantage has been severely diminished. Hispanic voters are moving decisively away from Democrats. 

Our survey found Republicans have made substantial gains among Hispanic voters in battleground districts, cutting the Democrat advantage on the generic congressional ballot to 44% Democrat – 37% Republican.

NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer said, “Republicans are making substantial gains with Hispanic voters because of our focus on economic issues such as the cost of gas and groceries. Republicans are fighting to protect the American Dream while Democrats are pushing a socialist agenda that threatens it.”    

Key Takeaways:  

  1. Hispanic voters in battleground districts are souring on the job Joe Biden is doing as President, and Speaker Pelosi is politically toxic. 
  2. Hispanic voters in battleground districts are extremely concerned about inflation and parental involvement in education. They also say Republicans are better able to protect the American Dream.    
  3. Republicans in Congress hold significant advantages over Democrats in Congress on the issues most important to Hispanic voters.
