What About Electoral Power?

In this special collaboration with Latino USA, Maria and Julio are joined by Sonja Diaz, founding director of the Latino Policy & Politics Institute at UCLA, and Jazmine Ulloa, national politics reporter for the New York Times, to talk about the complexity of Latino voters ahead of the midterm elections. They get into what they are hearing from voters on the ground, and the key races we should be keeping an eye on.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • Suzanne Gamboa writes about the “erosion of Latino voter support” for Republicans following the overturn of Roe v. Wade, for NBC Latino.

  • In this piece for The Atlantic, Ronald Brownstein examines whether we’re seeing a lasting realignment of Latinos toward the Republican Party.

  • “But what is most striking is that Ms. Flores won by shunning moderates, embracing the far right and wearing her support for Donald J. Trump on her sleeve — more Marjorie Taylor Greene than Kay Bailey Hutchison,” writes Jennifer Medina in this piece for The New York Times.
