Democratic strategists spoke with Fox News Digital about a poll showing
a massive shift by conservative Latinos from the Democratic Party to
the GOP and said that crime, treating Latino voters as single-issue
voters and the embrace of the far-left have played roles in the shift.
According to polling from NBC News, Telemundo and the Wall Street
Journal, 49% of self-described conservative Latinos preferred Democrats
to control Congress, 9 points more than Republicans. In September 2022,
73% of conservative Latinos support Republicans in Congress as opposed
to 17% who prefer Democrats, a 56-point GOP advantage.
"They don't like the socialists," Hank Sheinkopf, veteran Democratic
political consultant and president of Sheinkopf Communications, told
Fox News Digital about the Latino community. "They don't like the
abortion argument being thrust at them on a constant basis. They don’t
like the crime. They don’t like the chaos. And they’re responding."
