A new poll shows that President Donald Trump is leading with Hispanic voters in the state of Florida, a major political reversal among a demographic that has traditionally voted for Democrats. The NBC/Marist poll reveals that Donald Trump leads among Florida Latinos by 50% to 46%.

Hillary Clinton won 63% of Florida Hispanics in 2016, signaling a massive change in party affiliation with the demographic.

Trump also leads Biden overall amongst all registered voters in the state, with 48% of Floridians supporting Trump and 47% Biden. The two candidates are tied when self-declared likely voters are queried.

Trump also leads with white voters, leading 56% to 41% among the traditionally Republican demographic. Biden makes up with an overwhelming massive lead among black voters, taking 83% of the demographic. He also leads with seniors, a category that President Trump won in 2016.

Biden has accounted on aggressively competing with traditionally Republican senior voters and affluent suburbanites in an effort to defeat Trump in the November election. However, if Trump were to offset his appeal to the Republican voter base by drawing more Hispanic voters, the electoral map could end up looking similar to 2016.

The poll showing President Trump’s competitive appeal to many Hispanic voters could signal good signs for his reeelection prospects in states such as Arizona and Texas.

The NBC poll queried 1,047 registered voters from throughout Florida, with a margin of error of 3.7%.
