Segura on Trump’s Support Among Voters of Color

UCLA Luskin Dean Gary Segura spoke to the New York Times about polls showing that President Trump has lost support among most major demographic groups — with the exception of Black and Latino voters. While polls indicate that Trump will lose both groups badly in November, their level of support has risen slightly: 10% of Black voters and 30% of Latinos support Trump, the article noted. Political analysts explain the numbers by noting that some voters are focused on issues such as abortion and immigration, and others feel that the Democrats have failed to make a compelling case. They also point out that Republican support among voters of color declined well before Trump entered politics. “Latino support for Trump was already at historic lows,” said Segura, co-founder of the polling firm Latino Decisions. “There’s just not that much room for them to move down.”
