    50% of Hispanic voters across Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania believe that the United States is heading in the wrong direction. Only 37% believe the county is heading in the right direction. The remaining 13% said they don’t know or didn’t answer. The majority of respondents, other than those from Pennsylvania, said that the country is heading in the wrong direction.

    Arizona’s majority of respondents (56%) said that the country is heading in the wrong direction. Only 31 percent stated the opposite.

    Pennsylvania’s population was less than half of the total (45%) who said that the country is heading in the wrong direction. It was however still below the surface as only 37% said that the country is heading in the wrong direction. 18% said they didn’t know or couldn’t answer.

    Bendixen & Amandi International conducted the poll on behalf of Way to Win, a Democrat-aligned organization. According to the poll, half of the Hispanic voters in the battleground states do not approve of the country’s direction. This is an important point for President Joe Biden and the Democrats going into the midterms. The midterms are usually viewed as a referendum on his party.

    Tory Gavito, president of Way to Win, stated in an interview that “To win next year, we need to have Latinos around the 70 mark for Democrats,”. “Right now, we can see the support but it’s not strong.”

    Kristian Ramos (Democrat-aligned Organization’s Campaign Manager) argued that even if no voters turn up, they could still lose the election. The administration has done 10x more on Covid and has done amazing work on the economy. But Latinos don’t know. Ramos stated that economic anxiety is high in this group.

    Bendixen & Amandi International conducted the poll on behalf of Way to Win, between November 8-12. The questions were asked to 1,000 Hispanic registered voters in Arizona, Nevada, and Texas in English and Spanish (250 each from each state). The state samples had a margin of error of 3.2 percent, and 6.2 respectively.
