The Latino Vote Is Key. How Can Candidates For President Earn It?

This November, 32 million Latinos will be eligible to vote in the 2020 election, making them the largest minority voting bloc in the United States, according to the Pew Research Center. But Latinos are a diverse electorate—with roots from more than two dozen countries. 

This hour, what are President Trump and the Democrats doing right now to reach these voters?

We talk to Kristian Ramos, who has written an article for The Atlantic titled “Latino Support for Trump is Real.” Plus, two Latino leaders in Connecticut join us to talk about the communities they serve in Hartford and beyond.

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.


  • Kristian Ramos – Founder and principal of Autonomy Strategies in Washington D.C., and the former spokesman for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. (@kramos1841)
  • Fernando Betancourt – Executive Director of the San Juan Center, a social services organization serving the Latino community in Hartford.
  • Wildaliz Bermúdez – Hartford City Councilwoman (@WizBermudez)
