Overall, the election poll targeted 12,208 voters in the final days before the November 2022 election, offering exclusive information about the electorate including Congressional, Senate and Gubernatorial vote choices, issue priorities, and evaluations of both major parties and what issues motivated voter turnout.

Why It’s Needed

The National Exit Polls fail to address the issues that matter most to voters of color. Simply asking voters about their top issue doesn’t give us a real picture of what’s happening in our country. 

Our poll digs deeper, asking community-focused specific questions that can inform action.

The narrative that voters of color–and Latino and Black voters in particular–are abandoning the Democratic party is simply wrong.

Nearly two-thirds of Latino voters supported Democratic candidates, and over 85 percent of Black voters supported Democratic candidates. In contrast, a majority of White voters supported Republican candidates.

While the 2018 midterm election was cast against the mood of anger, voters in this midterm election cycle are more likely to say they are worried than angry.

Despite high levels of worry, voters reported overall feelings of hopefulness as their number one emotion as they cast their ballots in 2022, which suggests voters are not looking for a dramatic realignment but rather hoping for better days ahead and a full economic recovery.

Voters across all racial and ethnic groups want Congress to take up protections for Dreamers in the lame duck.

By a 2-to-1 margin, voters say they support Congress taking immediate action to provide permanent legal status to DACA recipients.
There is also enduring majority support for broader immigration reform among all racial/ethnic groups.

A majority of Americans believe our democracy is in trouble and may cease to exist in the next 10 years.

Two out of three non-white voters are worried that if Donald Trump runs for President again, he will promote hate and division. Voters across all racial and ethnic groups are concerned that some elected officials are encouraging white nationalists who attack minorities and immigrants.
