8. We'll see

 

He does very well compared to most candidates when it comes to Hispanic voters and he is in 2nd place in Arizona tied with Warren behind Biden by 7% with a 5% margin of error.

No candidate besides Biden will win South Carolina but other states who knows. The candidate not doing well outside rich & white people is Pete Buttigieg.

To answer your question in the OP they could support him for ideological reasons. Muslims also strongly support him.

The surprise voting bloc Bernie is banking on to win the nomination


The Vermont senator is aggressively courting a constituency with huge potential to sway elections but that typically doesn’t turn out in big numbers.

DES MOINES, Iowa — Bernie Sanders has “barrio cred.”

That might sound like a crazy thing to say about the 78-year-old senator from one of the whitest states in the country. But Latino activists say they hear all the time from voters in their community who are high on Sanders, and that’s backed by polling showing him leading or tied among Latinos. Sanders won the highly coveted endorsement of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. His campaign co-chair is San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. Afro-Latina rapper Cardi B is a fan.

Sanders’ star support from prominent Latinas “gives him barrio cred, street cred for this old white Jewish dude who is running for president,” said Domingo Garcia, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens. Garcia backed the Vermont senator in 2016 but, as president of LULAC, has refrained from endorsing a candidate in the current primary.

Story Continued Below

The fact that Joe Biden is counting on strong support from African Americans to win the Democratic nomination is widely known. Less understood is the similar bet that Sanders is making on Latino voters: His campaign believes that by driving up turnout among Latinos, as well as young and working-class voters of all ethnicities, he can build out the electorate, bring new voters into the fold, and expand the 15 to 20 percent of Democratic voters who zealously support the democratic socialist.

There’s also the reality that Sanders probably can’t win the Democratic nomination without Latinos, since his campaign is relying on a strong finish in states such as Nevada and California.
