Joe Biden would definitily like to win Florida….
He HAS had problems with the Hispanic voters all along….
One new poll shows Donald Trump with strength with the Cuban-American and other people’s from socialist countries in South America…(Trump has called Biden a socialist)
The Biden campaign has been slow to spend time and money on the Hispanic vote in Florida and is racing to catch up in the final days of the campaign….
There IS another poll with an entirely different picture though….
State polling shows Biden with a slight lead over Trump….
While Florida isn’t a must-win state for Biden as it is for Trump, a failure to generate stronger numbers among Hispanics could ensure he loses the state’s 29 electoral votes. Clinton received 62 percent of the Florida Hispanic vote in 2016, according to exit polls, and still lost here.
“If Biden is going to flip Florida, he has to at least match Clinton’s numbers among Hispanics and that looks like it’s not going to happen,” said Brad Coker, pollster for Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy, who conducted the poll.
“Even if he were to pull most of the undecided vote still out there, Trump is going to do better this time than he did last time,” Coker added. Trump received 35 percent of the Florida Hispanic vote in 2016 exit polls.
The Florida poll results follow months of criticism from Hispanic Democrats. Biden’s campaign was late in ramping up its efforts to build Hispanic support and fight GOP messaging that Biden, Sen. Kamala Harris and Democrats are socialists — a message that has resonated in South Florida’s Cuban, Venezuelan, Colombian and Nicaraguan communities.
Part of Trump’s improved numbers are due to strong support from Cuban-American voters in the state. Trump has long touted his support within that community after winning 54 percent of the Cuban-American vote, according to 2016 exit polls. Now, he is leading among them by 71 percent to 23 percent, according to the new poll….
A Univision poll released Wednesday painted a different picture. It showed Biden doing markedly better among Florida Hispanics, leading Trump by 20 points, 57 to 37 percent. A CBS News Battleground poll released last week had Biden leading among Hispanics in Florida by 27 points.
