How Latino Voters Made Electoral History in 2020

Earlier this week, a data report by the UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Initiative (LPPI) estimated that a historic 16.6 million U.S. Latinos voted in the 2020 election, a 30.9% increase from 2016. For this episode of Latino Rebels Radio, host Julio Ricardo Varela breaks down the findings with three members of the UCLA LPPI team: Sonja Diaz, Dr. Rodrigo Dominguez-Villegas and Daisy Vazquez Vera. “By themselves or in a multi-racial coalition, Latino voters really delivered several states for Joe Biden, including Arizona and Georgia—two states that have not had a Democratic candidate win the state for the presidency in several decades,” Dominguez-Villegas states.
