ORLANDO, Fla. — A new Pew Research study indicated there are 350,000 more Latinos registered to vote this year in Florida compared to 2016.
That’s enough voters to fill Camping World Stadium in Orlando five times.
This explains why candidates are pushing hard to win the Latino vote in Florida.
Data shows since 2016, the number of Latinos who have registered to vote in the state has risen to 2.4 million.
Orange and Osceola counties have long had their fair share of Hispanic voters.
Roughly half of registered voters in Osceola County are now Hispanic, making it the second-largest share in the state behind Miami-Dade.
From 2016 to 2020, the number of Latinos registered to vote in Polk County grew by 46%, Lake County grew by 40%, Marion County grew by 34%, and both Volusia and Seminole counties grew by 25%.
So capitalizing on that is critical. With Hispanics, President Donald Trump’s team talks about their anti-Communist messages.
And former Vice President Joe Biden pushes issues on Puerto Rico’s recovery.
Of the Hispanic voters, 35% are registered as “no party affiliation.”
