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.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
