Exponentially more Hispanic voters in the United States find the term “Latinx” offensive than actually use it themselves, according to a new poll from Bendixen & Amandi International.
An overwhelming majority of survey respondents said they identify themselves as Hispanic, Latino or Latina, with 89% of those polled choosing one of those three options. Another 8% said “something else,” while just two percent of respondents said they identify as Latinx.
The poll was conducted among 800 registered voters of Hispanic origin from Nov. 17-21. The margin of error was 3.46 points.
