Latinos comprise an estimated 25% of likely California voters, and such overwhelming support bodes well for Prop. 15’s chances in November
Today, the Latino Community Foundation announced the results of a new poll which found that 76% of Latino voters support Prop. 15.

Latinos account for an estimated 25% of likely voters in California, and such support within the community is a promising sign for Prop. 15’s path to victory in November.
Here are the results of the Prop. 15 question from the poll:
Moreover, 86% of Latino voters support “closing taxpayer loopholes to ensure millionaires and large corporations pay their fair share.” The results can be seen here:
“Latino voters support Prop. 15 because those schools and essential local services most in need are getting ripped off by property tax loopholes benefiting corporations at the very top. The results of this poll are very encouraging for the campaign, and it reflects some of the work our coalition has put into communicating with the Latino community.” – Alex Stack, Yes on 15 Communications Director
Prop. 15 is a November ballot measure that will close corporate property tax loopholes to reclaim nearly $12 billion every year for essential workers, local services, and schools – all while protecting homeowners and renters, small businesses, and agriculture. Moreover, the measure implements a new tax cut for small businesses. According to an analysis of Prop. 15, only the top 10% of commercial and industrial properties would generate 92% of the revenue.
