In 2022, the significant Republican Latino realignment didn’t take place. So what?

What didn’t happen is as important as what did in the midterm elections. Democrats did not lose ground among Latinos, but neither did they significantly regain the ground they lost in 2020. The big exception was Florida, where Republicans made gains among Hispanic voters. Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto captured 62 percent of Latino voters in Nevada, almost identical to Vice President Biden’s in 2020. Exit polling can be imprecise because it does not fully represent raw vote totals. Democrats outspent Republicans by a margin of about 5 to 1 in those two states.
