A recent survey revealed that the Latino electorate prefers either Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush to win the presidential race.

The survey was conducted by Latino Decisions on 14 battleground states and was published on Monday, according to Fox News Latino. Democrats want former Secretary of State Clinton to win as president while the Republican demographic is rooting for former Florida Gov. Bush's triumph.

Clinton got 67 percent of votes from Latinos living in the areas surveyed, with only 27 percent having unfavorable opinions on her, Fox News Latino reported.

Bush got 47 percent of voter preference, which mainly came from his good performance as Florida's former governor, the news outlet added. The Republican hopeful got 37 percent of votes in opposition of his leadership.

Bush is ahead of his fellow Republican presidential candidate, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, in the study's findings. Rubio has been climbing in the polls, but only 32 percent of Latino voters surveyed are in favor of him, with 40 percent not convinced of his message, Fox News Latino further reported.

Latino Decisions' study was taken from 424 randomly chosen Hispanic communities in Florida, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, Georgia, New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, and Michigan, Fox News Latino listed.

The study noted that neither Latino voters in New York nor California were polled despite the large concentration of the Hispanic population in both states. This was because both states traditionally vote for the Democratic Party, the news outlet further reported.

The study has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percent, Fox News Latino added.

Latino Labor Organization to Educate Voters in New Campaign

The Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) has launched a national campaign using volunteers to spread the importance of the Hispanic vote. The campaign will kick off in Florida, Colorado, and Texas, NBC News reported.

"The Latino community is growing rapidly in the U.S., both in population and in our contribution to the economic and social life of this nation," said Hector Sánchez, executive director of LCLAA, in a statement issued by the organization, as quoted by NBC News. "Our voters are eager to find candidates who take them seriously and are ready to invest in the economy, improve our schools and immigration system, and defend our rights."

The LCLAA has already invested their resources in engaging Hispanic voters, which includes civic engagement projects and immigration information, the news outlet added.
