Sen. Bernie Sanders has the most support among Latino voters among the Democratic presidential candidates both nationally and in the upcoming Nevada primary, according to a Univision poll released Tuesday, The Hill reported.
Among Latinos nationally, Sanders has 30% support and 33% in Nevada, well ahead of second place Joe Biden at 21% nationally and 22% percent in the state.
Nevada, which conducts its caucuses on Saturday, is the first state with a more diverse population to vote, as Latinos make up nearly 30% of its population.
