Polls among American Latinos rank him as the most trusted and influential Hispanic in America, surpassing all other political leaders, and his Q Score among Latino audiences places him between footballer Lionel Messi and pop singer Shakira.
In 2012, Ramos, critical of the lack of Latino moderators in any of the U. Presidential debates, complained that the debate commission was "stuck in the 1950s".
He has confronted politicians like Ted Cruz, as well as and right-wing commentators such as Ann Coulter on his program, and has criticized Trump for his views.
At KMEX, Ramos felt he could express himself freely: "To me it was a palace...
the United States gave me opportunities that my country of origin could not: freedom of the press and complete freedom of expression." Since 1986, Ramos has been the anchorman for Noticiero Univision, a nightly Spanish language newscast, alongside colleague María Elena Salinas.
Ramos wrangles with President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner; he swims the Rio Grande; he says he asks every question as if it’s his last, determined to get an answer or go down trying. He knows he has a voice and is not afraid to use it.
He shouts from every rooftop that Hispanic rights are human rights." earlier this year that Ramos has become as influential among Hispanic voters as Cronkite ever was for middle-class white Americans. Neutrality is for referees in a football game," he said.
Currently, he also hosts Al Punto, a Spanish-language Sunday public affairs program aired weekly on Univision, and America with Jorge Ramos, an English language news magazine on Fusion TV.
