The Latino Public Opinion Forum (LPOF) was established by FIU’s Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy in March 2016. 

LPOF is an initiative with the mission of tracking systematically and scientifically public opinion trends of the major Latino/Hispanic groups in the United States (with an emphasis on Florida) with the objective of providing high-quality research to inform policymakers, business, media, and academics. The research is done through state-of-the-art technology, traditional survey, and qualitative methods.

LPOF is the first university-level initiative in Florida that studies the growth and impact of the Latino population across a range of areas including American Politics.

Florida Latinos and U.S. Policy towards Venezuela

A telephone survey was conducted where 1016 Latinos in Florida were asked about U.S. Policy towards Venezuela as well as their opinion on the Biden Administration and Foreign Policy. Respondents were obtained from Florida voter registration rolls and were also recruited online. The margin of error was 3.5% at a 95% confidence level.
