There was a fair amount of attention given before Election Day to what impact Latino voters would have on the presidential election.

Now that we know Florida and Texas went for President Trump and Arizona is still not called, though it is leaning in former vice president Joe Biden’s favor, one thing that is clear is that there is a lot left to learn about how Latinos in America engage in politics.

According to some exit polls, President Trump captured as much as 36% of the Latino vote Tuesday night. Leading to this question - Why did so many Latinos vote for Donald Trump? To investigate – we welcome Dan Irizarry, chairman of Capital District Latinos.

Nationally, Joe Biden maintains a big advantage among Hispanic voters relative to 2016 exit polling. A Washington Post average of recent polls shows that he’s faring almost as well as Hillary Clinton did with that group four years ago.

In Arizona, he’s outperforming Clinton — a good sign for his candidacy. But in Florida, the picture is starker for the Democrat: His lead over Donald Trump is only in the low double-digits.

The chairman of the Capital District LATINOS Dan Irizarry joins us this morning to discuss the power of Latinos in voting as well as in our region with the Cultural Empowerment and Community Engagement Center – a place for culture, art, music, and poetry. It’s a place for the growing Latino community to come together and stay connected to their roots.

National Hispanic Heritage Month is wrapping up this week with two Albany events.
