Herschel Walker leads by 6 points among Hispanic voters

Republican Herschel Walker leads Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the U.S. Senate race among likely Hispanic voters in Georgia by 6.3%, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution/Georgia News A collaborative poll indicated that among a sample of 309 self-identified Hispanic likely voters in Georgia, 47.4% would support Walker, while 41.1% would support Warnock.

The poll also showed Chase Oliver, the Libertarian candidate, with 11.1% of support from likely Hispanic voters, while another 0.3% were undecided.

Additionally, on the generic Congressional ballot among likely Hispanic voters, 46.3% said they would vote for Republican, while an additional 48.7% said they would vote for Democrat. Five percent said they didn’t know.

A majority (47.6%) also said the US was heading down the wrong path, while just 6% said the right path, 26% said it was “mixed” and 20.3% said they did not know.

But when asked about the gubernatorial race, the two candidates, Gov. Brian Kemp (R) and far-left Stacey Abrams, were statistically tied. Among the same respondents, 48.1% supported Kemp, while 49.3% supported Abrams. Only 2.3% said they supported Shane Hazel, the Libertarian candidate, while 0.2% were undecided.

The poll was conducted Oct. 11-12, with 309 self-identified Hispanic likely voters in Georgia, a 5.6% margin of error on sample size, and a 95% confidence level.

The poll lines up with national trends in several battleground states, showing Republicans have continued to expand their party’s gains among Hispanic voters, which accelerated under former President Donald Trump.

Since 2016, “Republican uprisings” have occurred across the country, with ordinary voters – especially Hispanic voters – turning to the Republican Party after becoming frustrated with the one-party Democratic regime in Washington, D.C. .

As the New York Times writing, South Texas voters and candidates claimed that “Democrats are destroying a Latino culture built around God, family and patriotism” and noted that Republican candidates relied on the party’s history in matter of economic, religious and cultural sentiment over the past decade.

As Breitbart News reported in May, support among Hispanic voters has dwindled over the years. Still, Republican figures such as Trump have made inroads with minority communities after showing their support across the county.

In December, data showed there had been a 42-point swing in favor of Republicans since the 2018 midterm elections – when Hispanic voters overwhelmingly backed Democrats and the party won 41 net seats , taking control of the House.
