All across our Nation, there is a strong dissatisfaction with the management of our domestic and foreign affairs during the past two years by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.
For the mid-term elections, Hispanic voters are expected to be a deciding factor in many close races, not just for the demographic changes that have been taking place in the past 30 years, but for the fact that many of them have decided to abandon the tradition of voting for the Democratic Party.
In Connecticut, analyst are looking into the impact that the Hispanic vote will have in deciding if the Republicans win the gubernatorial race, the election for a Senate seat, and two or three Congressional Districts. All these races are now tight, having moved from a Democrat advantage to close numbers within the statistical margin of error.
But, how Hispanic is Connecticut? Here are some numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau:
17.7% of the population is Hispanic, out of an estimated population of 3,605,597 (as of July 1, 2021.)
And, the top five cities in population, all of them with more than 100,000 inhabitants, have higher percentages of Hispanics:
Bridgeport, CT —> 42.0%
Stamford, CT —> 27.1%
New Haven, CT —> 30.8%
Hartford, CT (the State Capital) —> 44.7%
Waterbury, CT —> 36.6%
Since Hispanics grow at higher rates than other groups and their fundamental cultural values do not align with the radical-left ideology of the Democratic Party, sooner rather than later, Connecticut will become one of the Nation’s electoral swing states.
