With just over one week to go until Election Day, a recent survey of Latino voters show nearly half plan to cast their votes before November 8th.
For the eight weeks leading up to that date, the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Educational Fund and Noticias Telemundo have conducted a weekly tracking poll of registered voters.
What they have found in the latest poll is that 46 percent surveyed will cast their ballots before Election Day, nearly equaling the 47 percent who say they will vote next Tuesday. Nearly 20 percent surveyed say they have already voted.
Those surveyed also clearly are favoring one candidate for President – Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. 74 percent surveyed say they will be voting for Clinton, while just 14 percent are planning to cast a ballot for GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Those who took the survey in Spanish had a higher number of Clinton votes (81 percent) as opposed to those who responded in English (64 percent). Clinton also received 77 percent of support from college graduates and 75 percent from those under the age of 39.
Trump’s biggest support came from registered Republicans (61 percent), those responding in English (21 percent) and voters making more than $60,000 a year (19 percent).
