Donald Trump is gaining ground among Hispanic Republican voters as seven other GOP candidates prepare to battle it out in the former president’s absence.
A recent Univision poll claims that 50 percent of Hispanic Republicans are prepared to vote for Trump – the survey claims to be the largest Hispanic bipartisan primary poll of the 2024 season so far.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – who relied heavily on Hispanic Americans for his Gubernatorial re-election – trails with just 12 percent of Hispanic Republican voters backing him.
Biotech multimillionaire Vivek Ramaswamy came in third with nine percent of the vote.
Overall, Trump has a 36 percent favorability rating among Hispanic voters, far and away beating his Republican competitors.

The poll surveyed 1,400 registered voters – including 625 Republican Latino respondents – making it the largest Hispanic-American survey of the 2024 cycle.
García-Rios, Director of Polling and Data at Univision Noticias, said in a statement: “This first-of-its-kind national poll demonstrates the wants and needs across the Hispanic community, and particularly an in-depth insight into the Republican Primary Hispanic Voter.
“This poll provides an opportunity to understand the complex and varied sentiments within the community across the country.”
The survey also found that if an election were held today, Joe Biden would win the overall Hispanic vote – 58 percent to Trump’s 31 percent.
It found that 87 percent of Hispanic Democrats would vote for Biden while 85 percent of Hispanic Republicans would vote for Trump marking a strong partisan divide.
Most Democrat and Republican Hispanic voters were found to agree that more border security was needed in the US.
The poll provides an interesting insight into a demographic crucial to both Trump and Biden if either hopes to secure the presidency.
The American free-to-air TV channel Univision, which conducted the poll, has partnered with Fox to air tonight’s second GOP debate. Despite Trump’s absence, it’s a sure bet that Americans – including many Hispanic Americans – will be tuning in to watch.
