In an upcoming podcast interview, out
singer-songwriter Ricky Martin talks about his support for former
Vice President Joe Biden.
Martin, who was born in San Juan,
Puerto Rico, is raising four children with his husband Jwan Yosef.
Martin, 48, who stumped for Biden in
Florida last month, criticized Latinos for Trump, a coalition of
Latino voters who support President Donald Trump.
“It is super sad,” Martin said
during an appearance on the Variety and iHeart podcast The
Big Ticket. “I think there's a lot [of] Hispanics that will
vote him out. Trumpeters make a lot of noise and it's scary to see
their enthusiasm. But us, we're doing what's right, the right way and
we'll see what happens in November. I'm very optimistic.”
On Biden, Martin called him “great”:
“I think [Biden] is the only option we have and he is great and he
has been in politics all his life. This is the moment. We all need to
get together and be loud about the course of this nation.”
According to Latino
Decisions, a project of NALEO, 65 percent of Latinos favor Biden,
while 24 percent support Trump. Trump has higher support among
Cuban-Americans (50%), a key demographic in Florida, according to a
