A poll found that Latinos in this state are divided, especially by Cubans and Venezuelans who mostly support Trump.

Joe Biden makes his first campaign in Florida with Hispanics

Joe Biden is making his first campaign trip to Florida, already as a Democratic presidential candidate, while the party is concerned about how to attract the vote of the Hispanic community, a bloc that will prove fundamental and decisive for this election.

The former vice president will hold a roundtable with veterans in Tampa before celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with an event in Kissimmee near Orlando. The visit comes when some Democrats have expressed concern that Biden is losing support in a state that accounts for one-fifth of eligible voters.

“I’ll talk about how I’m going to work like the devil to make sure I turn all the Latino votes around”

Biden said after a speech on climate change in his home state of Delaware.

Biden doesn’t need to win Florida to get to the White House as long as he has Midwest states, which Trump achieved in 2016. But Trump’s path to re-election is virtually non-existent if he loses Florida, which is why Democrats are focused on it.

An NBC-Marist poll revealed that Latinos in the state are evenly divided between Biden and Trump. Democrat Hillary Clinton led Trump by a margin of 59% to 36% among Latinos in the same poll in 2016, and Trump won Florida by approximately one percentage point.

Biden, who has not been to Florida since last October, struggles with Latinos who derive in part from the Obama administration’s policies. The former vice president said during the Democratic primary that he lamented the record number of deportations when Barack Obama was in the White House.

Unlike Bernie Sanders, who did have strong support among Latinos to win the primaries in Nevada and California, Biden has refused to take the most liberal positions in his party, especially when it comes to asking for the decriminalization of illegal crossings on the U.S.Mexico border and stopping deportations.

Although Trump has a very anti-immigrant speech, some Latino voters have responded positively to the president’s adoption of conservative religious positions and his warnings about violence and socialism related to protests. Trump also frantically visits his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and the president votes by mail in that state.
