Contrary to pre-election surveys, the Latino electorate did not veer sharply Right and was pivotal in key Senate races in Nevada and Arizona. Was the polling wrong about the importance of the economy and unpopularity of Biden with Latinos? And how does this square with the much-publicized result in Florida, where Latinos did veer sharply Right?
Joining host Stephen Spitz to discuss this is UNM professor Gabriel Sanchez, who has provided election analysis for Albuquerque TV stations, Latino Decisions, and NPR. We will explore the above questions as well as Latino support for Democrats in New Mexico what Republicans need to do to win state-wide races.
Produced with assistance of Lynn Schibeci, Gus Tafoya, and Tristan Clum.
