Virginia Latino voters excited for Biden presidency

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – The Latino vote went to different candidates around the nation, but in Virginia a majority of Latinos favored former Vice President Joe Biden and are hopeful he’ll reverse President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

More than 60% of Latinos in Virginia voted for Biden during this year’s presidential election, while almost 40% supported Trump, according to exit polls conducted by The Washington Post and other media organizations. In comparison, 65% of Latinos in the state supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, according to The Washington Post.

A majority of Latinos voted for Biden nationally, but Trump drew more Latinos in two swing states – Florida and Georgia – than the last presidential election, according to The Washington Post analysis. In the U.S., about 30% of Latinos identify as conservative, roughly the same percentage say they’re moderate and another 30% label themselves liberal, according to a study by the Pew Research Center.
