As Breitbart News reported in May, Spanish voter support has waned over the years. Still, Republican figures like Trump have made inroads into minority communities following their support across the province.

In December, data showed that there had been a 42-point turn in favor of Republicans since the 2018 midterm elections — when Spanish voters overwhelmingly supported Democrats and the party won a net 41 seats and took control of the House.
