According to a new NBC/Telemundo poll, 54% of Hispanic registered voters prefer Democrats retain control of Congress, 33% of Hispanic voters prefer Republicans gain control. A 21% difference might seem large, it’s down significantly from a 26-point lead in October 2020, 34 points from October 2016 and 42 points from October 2012.
