Discuss Hispanic voters in Florida. In what ways do Hispanic voters in Florida differ from Hispanic voters in other states? What impact does these differences have on Florida politics?

In Florida, Hispanics make up about 25% of the population. Within that 25%, statistics demonstrate that approximately 14%-17% are eligible to vote during elections. This is mainly
seen in South Florida as the Hispanic population is mostly concentrated in Miami-Dade County, Broward County, Hillsborough County, Orange County, and Osceola County. Hence, this explains why the role of Hispanics in Florida is prominent and it goes further than the numbers shown by statistics. In Florida, Hispanic’s vote is seen as swing vote, meaning that there is a two-arty system put in place and there are two dominant political parties where an individual can choose to vote for.
When comparing Hispanic voters in Florida from Hispanic voters in other states, one can say that a great part of the Hispanic population in Florida is mainly Republican. Similarly, Texas and Arizona are also states that mostly identify with the Republican party because individuals are Cuban Americans that are anti-Castro and do not believe in communist ideals. Also, within these three states, a great part of the Hispanic population is made up of conservative individuals from Colombia, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. On the other hand, in other states like California and New York, the majority of the state’s Hispanic population tend to be affiliated with the democratic party. This is because Hispanics believe that the Democrat party takes more into consideration their hard work and efforts in the United States economy, and they feel rewarded as the government provides them with assistance programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP, housing, etc
