Wall Street Journal Poll: The Red Wave Is Real And So Are Black And Latino Republican Voters

One of the most fascinating aspects of the 2022 midterms has been the dramatic shift of black and Latino voters to the GOP.

Black and Latino voters care about the rise in crime and inflation like everyone else, and their support will make a big difference in the midterms.

New polling seems to confirm this.

From the Wall Street Journal:

GOP Gaining Support Among Black and Latino Voters, WSJ Poll Finds

The Republican Party is winning support from a larger share of Black voters than in other recent elections and has improved its standing in the past few months among Latino voters, the latest Wall Street Journal poll finds, adding to evidence of the party’s increasing appeal among groups that have overwhelmingly favored Democratic candidates.

About 17% of Black voters said they would pick a Republican candidate for Congress over a Democrat in Journal polls both in late October and in August. That is a substantially larger share than the 8% of Black voters who voted for former President Donald Trump in 2020 and the 8% who backed GOP candidates in 2018 House races, as recorded by AP VoteCast, a large survey of voters who participated in those elections.

Among Latino voters, Democrats held a lead of 5 percentage points over Republicans in the choice of a congressional candidate in the Journal’s October survey, a narrower advantage than the Democrats’ 11-point lead in August.

Both findings suggest a deterioration in Democratic support as Latino voters show high degrees of concern about inflation and the direction of the economy. Latino voters in 2020 favored President Biden over Mr. Trump by 28 percentage points and Democratic candidates in 2018 House races by 31 points, VoteCast found.
