He cited a recent New York Times/Siena College poll published last week, finding Trump trailing President Joe Biden among Hispanics by single digits: 50 to 42 percent. In 2020 CNN exit polling showed Biden beating Trump 65 to 32 percent among Latinos. Similarly, Pew Research found Biden garnered 59 percent support to Trump’s 38 percent. Trump’s Hispanic backing in 2020 was up from 2016 when Hillary Clinton won 66 percent to Trump’s 28 percent, according to Pew. beating Biden in Arizona and Nevada, which have large Hispanic populations. Biden carried both those states in 2020. “I think bigger than anything now is security. They want security,” Trump said. “They want to have a border.” The Post criticized Acevedo for not pressing Trump harder during the interview. He defended his approach writing in Spanish, “I’m a reporter and my job is to ask questions. The prominence belongs to the information.” In other words rather than asking loaded questions to put the spotlight on himself, Acevedo appeared to be saying, “Let the people hear Trump’s responses and judge him for themselves.”
#EntrevistaTrump | @TeleUniCompany, a través de @nmas, logró una entrevista exclusiva con el expresidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, justo a un año del proceso electoral de 2024 en ese país. #EnPunto con @Enrique_Acevedo | #DecideInformado | pic.twitter.com/4iqxfajWxh— NMás (@nmas) November 10, 2023
How refreshing. According to the Post, Univision ran the Trump interview during its most popular 10 p.m. hour and did not allow the Biden campaign to run commercials during the broadcast as counter-programming. The company said the same policy will be in place if Biden agrees to an interview with the network. The continued Latino swing toward Trump is just one development that appears to be boosting his chances in 2024. The independent runs of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West, along with Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s entry in the race, are all likely to bleed votes from Biden much more than Trump. It will make the race less predictable to gauge for the oddsmakers, as well. All of this is on top of the Democrats’ ridiculous, politically-motivated 91 felony charges and other civil actions against Trump, the leading Republican candidate. Democrats have turned Trump into the victim, making him a more sympathetic figure for many. Univision’s change in tone is just one more factor boosting Trump’s chances in 2024.
