Despite the narrative coming from the White House, President Joe Biden’s favor heading into 2024 has only strengthened support for a vote of change come the November general election. This included among Latino voters in Georgia who recently spoke to CNN’s Miguel Marquez on the economic burdens the current administration has saddled with compared to the “four years ago” litmus test.

“Right now [I’m] working three jobs because I have to pay more things, like my house is more expensive,” mother Gabriela Martinez explained.

“I didn’t see something like really change,” she had said, “and I didn’t see changes. So I was expecting something.”

Her opinion was far from unique, detailed Marquez who explained of the community in Dalton, Georgia, “Much of the labor here, Latino immigrants living paycheck to paycheck. Many now view the Trump years as better for their bottom line.”

This included one Juan Manuel Ferreira Zamora who said, “Some Latino communities say when Trump was president, we don’t have high gas or inflation of their food. So this is the truth.”

Views shared by the Georgia voters came after CNN had released a poll conducted by SSRS between Oct. 27 and Nov. 2 that showed the incumbent only had a 4% lead over his predecessor, the GOP frontrunner former President Donald Trump. That sam poll showed 61% of all voters disapproved of “how Biden is handling his job as president.”

Marquez highlighted the stark contrast in the Peach State compared to 2020 where Biden, who had secured an electoral victory with a recorded margin of less than 12,000 votes, and topped Trump by 25% among Latino voters. Though the incumbent continued to eke out the leading Republican challenger, Trump was now considered down by only 8% among Latinos according to the recent New York Times/Siena poll that looked at a head-to-head matchup in battleground states.

Georgia-based nonprofit group GALEO Impact Fund’s program manager Andres Parra, spoke to CNN about where voters are gravitating and remarked of the race still seemingly anyone’s to win, “I think there’s a lot of frustration and and a lot of broken promises.”

This included a couple in their 80s who continue to work daily at their Atlanta store. Juan Jose Patiño voiced his concern as a Democrat about the economy and crime. “Here in Atlanta many people are thinking bad things about murder and crime.”

That view had been previously voiced by a 53-year-old Pennsylvania Biden voter who had told the Times, “The world is falling apart under Biden. I would much rather see somebody that I feel can be a positive role-model leader for the country. But at least I think Trump has his wits about him.”

As Axios concluded after reviewing multiple polls, “Biden is bleeding support among Hispanic voters and Black voters — especially younger ones, and especially in swing states.”
