A new Univision News poll of 1,962 registered Latino voters released on Monday said 66% of respondents support the Democratic ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, with 24% choosing the incumbent Republican ticket of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

As for three battleground states with significant Latino voting populations, Biden-Harris was at 66-25 in Texas, 65-25 in Arizona and 52-36 in Florida.

A set of crosstabs shared poll breakdowns by gender, language, country of origin and other categories

Here are some findings of those categories:

  • Biden/Harris say higher support with Latino men (68%) than Latina women (64%).
  • Trump/Pence has higher support with Spanish-dominant Latinos (30%) than English-dominant Latinos (24%).
  • Biden/Harris earned 70% of support from both Latino voters age 18-29 and Latino voters 50 and over. Trump/Pence got 30% support with Latino voters age 30-49.
  • Trump/Pence earned 32% support with college-educated Latino voters.

The Biden/Harris Latino support is tracking at the same national number (66%) that Hilary Clinton got in the 2016 election, based on exit polling. The Biden/Harris number is lower than the 2012 election cycle.

A Latino Decisions Election Eve 2016 poll reported that Clinton got 79% of the Latino vote, despite what national exit polls noted.
