To underscore the unpopularity of the so-called gender-neutral term ‘Latinx,’ a pair of national polls found that only 1% of Hispanics prefer the representation that woke politicians and pundits force on a culture that has survived without since its foundation.
“Latinx” emerged in recent years as an alternative to preferred identifiers such as Hispanic and Latino through propaganda from news and entertainment outlets, corporations, government agencies, and universities in a global movement to erase gender and create a non-binary future.
WPA Intelligence, a conservative polling firm that collaborated with Visto Media on behalf of the Latino advocacy group Bienvenido, conducted a poll of 1,288 Hispanic registered Democrat, Republican, and Independent voters with a 3% margin of error earlier this month.
The latest national poll found that the community prefers to be identified as Hispanic, while others said American or Latino.
“This is pretty much consistent with everything that we’ve seen from Gallup and from other polls that show most Hispanics want to be called Hispanic, and that Latin x is not very popular in our community,” Giancarlo Sopo, media strategist for the firm, told reporters last week in a presentation. “So no surprises here.”

In a separate poll also tallied earlier this month, 1,000 register voters were asked about the term Latinx.
Respondents of the poll were asked to choose from a list of options why many Hispanics have not embraced the term, a combined 35% of Democrats blamed Hispanics rejecting the made-up term on ‘machismo culture’ or ‘too much homophobia and transphobia among Hispanics,” which just over half of those opinions came from college educated white Democratic women.
According to the poll, Hispanic culture has more pressing issues to worry about rather than buying into identity politics pushed by far-left extremist groups to garner votes from minorities only to renege on their empty platitudes after another elections season completes its cycle.
Issues like crime, inflation, and the Southern Border have taken the helm of what matters most to Hispanics rather than ideas presented to fuel the culture war legacy media has forced on its viewers for decades.
Hispanics with conservative or traditional cultural backgrounds prefer discussing such social policy bends at the kitchen table.
“Hispanics do not believe that topics such as gender identity and sexual orientation should be discussed with kids,” Sopo said.
Other reasons Democrats believe the term has failed to catch on with Hispanic culture range from “right-wing disinformation” or simply because Hispanics take pride in their culture as it stands. In contrast, about 14% have no idea what the term means — among many other cultures.
Meanwhile, most Republicans said it’s because Hispanics like their culture.
The poll revealed that many Hispanic Democrats still believe left-wing disinformation from Spanish-speaking media sources, such as the false narrative police officers kill 150 or more unarmed Black men every year, the Supreme Court outlawed abortion in the nation, or former President Trump called all immigrants “animals,” rather than just referring to MS-13 gang members.
“I think a lot of the time, Democrats are too eager to brand anything and everything that they don’t like as misinformation,” Sopo said. “I’m not denying that there is misinformation in Hispanic communities — but as we saw in this poll — it is clearly not limited to right-wing sources … right-leaning audiences. There is misinformation, and I think Hispanic voters are incredibly smart and nuanced, sophisticated enough to decipher fact from fiction.”
