According to a poll by Bendixen & Amandi International, 50% of Hispanic voters in the battleground states of Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Texas believe the United States is headed in the wrong direction.

By contrast, only 37% of Hispanic voters polled believe that the country is heading in a positive direction. Thirteen percent said they “don’t know” or did not answer.


In the case of Arizona, a majority (56%) of the respondents said the country is going in the wrong direction, while only 31% said the country is on the right path. Thirteen percent indicated they “don’t know” or did not answer.

In Nevada, 55% of the respondents indicated that the country is headed in the wrong direction, while only 35% believe the country is heading in the right direction. Ten percent indicated they “don’t know” or did not answer.

In Pennsylvania, 45% said the country is going in the wrong direction compared to 37% who said the state was going in the right direction. Eighteen percent said they “don’t know” or did not respond.

In Texas, 54% of respondents signaled that the country was headed in the wrong direction, whereas only 38% said the right direction. Eight percent said they “don’t know” or did not respond.

Bendixen & Amandi International carried out the poll on behalf of “Way to Win,” an organization described on its website as “a home base for progressive donors and organizers.”

“To win next November, we need to have Latinos at the 70-mark for Democrats, so we’ve got to move for these folks,” Tory Gavito, the president of Way to Win, declared in an interview. “Right now, we see the support, but it’s soft.”

Way to Win’s campaign manager, Kristian Ramos, warned about Hispanics not showing up for the midterms. “We could easily lose them to the couch. This administration has done ten times more on COVID, has done miraculous work on the economy, but Latinos have no idea. And the economic anxiety in this group is off the charts,” Ramos observed.

The poll was conducted from November 8 to 12. One thousand registered Hispanic voters in Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Texas (250 from each state) received questions in English and Spanish. The margin of error was 3.1% overall and 6.2% for the individual state samples.
