Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Hispanic voters evenly split between Democrats, GOP: WSJ poll”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Support from Hispanic voters is evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll.

While the poll relies on an unusually small sample size of 165 Hispanic registered voters to arrive at its conclusions and has a 7.6 percentage point margin of error, it's the latest data point in a worrying trend for Democrats. The party has come to rely on the Hispanic vote to win national and local elections and acknowledged its underperformance among the voting block is partially to blame for 2020 defeats in key states like Texas and Florida.

According to the Wall Street Journal, 44 percent of Hispanics would vote for President BidenJoe BidenHouse passes 8B defense policy bill House approves bill to ease passage of debt limit hike Senate rejects attempt to block Biden's Saudi arms sale MORE if the 2024 presidential election were held today, and 43 percent would vote for former President TrumpDonald TrumpSenate rejects attempt to block Biden's Saudi arms sale Crenshaw slams House Freedom Caucus members as 'grifters,' 'performance artists' Senate confirms Biden's nominee to lead Customs and Border Protection MORE.

The breakdown of congressional support among Hispanics finds a similar tie, with support for Democrats and the GOP tied at 37 percent each. 

In keeping with most polls of Hispanic voters, the WSJ survey found greater support for Republicans and Trump among Hispanic men than among Hispanic women.
