WASHINGTON, DC – On Wednesday, October 5, the Center for American Progress Action Fund and Latino Decisions will release unprecedented, new polling of Puerto Rican voters in Florida.

In the past year, the battleground state of Florida has experienced a major shift in demographics with the growth of the Puerto Rican population, specifically, in the region known as the I-4 Corridor. With more than one million Puerto Ricans in Florida, the group has become an integral part of the new rising electorate of non-Cuban Hispanic voters in the state.

The new polling will reveal essential data about the Puerto Rican voting bloc with the potential to swing Florida – locally and nationally – and shape the politics of 2016 and beyond.

For media interested in an embargoed copy of the poll, please contact Beatriz Lopez at blopez.af@americanprogressaction.org.
