Poll of AZ Latinos shows warnings signs for Democrats and Republicans

New polling of Latino voters in Arizona has red flags for Democrat and Republican candidates as their campaigns enter crunch time before the November election.

Local results from a multi-state survey done as part of a partnership between UnidosUS and Mi Familia Vota have been released.

A bad sign for Democrats in power is that 62% of Arizona Latinos said the U.S. is going in the wrong direction.

A warning for challenger Republicans is that 51% of poll participants said they won’t vote for people who were at or supported the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Border security and immigration reform are last on a list of key issues which local Latinos most want elected officials to confront.

Issues seen as more pressing are inflation, gun violence, jobs and abortion.

Four out of five poll participants believe abortion should stay legal, no matter their personal views on the practice.
