Latino voters in Florida se están poniendo las pilas this presidential election in comparison to the 2012 election. In fact, new stats released by the Clinton campaign prove that things are looking up for Hillary Clinton.
Early voting kicked off Monday, and a total of 133,000 Latinos have already voted in the Sunshine State – that’s a 99 percent increase compared to four years ago, reports BuzzFeed.
The high numbers are very encouraging for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Clinton’s campaign reports that an “unprecedented” 133,000 Latino votes consisted of vote-by-mail and absentee ballots. The campaign also highlighted that in Florida’s Pinellas County, which is 10 percent Latino, “Democrats now maintain a voter registration advantage that’s increased since March,” as reported by BuzzFeed News.
Latinos made up 17 percent of Florida’s electorate in 2012. The high numbers in 2016 could really push Clinton to win this key swing state.
But Florida is not the only state with a large Latino population where Hillary is dominating. Recent polls show that Clinton has the upper hand in Nevada and Arizona thanks to early Latino voters.
