Winning the Latino Vote: The Key to the White House?Printable Version
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
In the Presidential elections of 2008, voter turnout was higher than it had been in the past few decades, in part due to the turnout of Hispanic voters, a key demographic. The Latino vote will likely be the difference between winning and losing in states like Colorado, Nevada and Florida. History tells us that which ever candidate wins those states has the inside track on the road to the White House. What turnout is expected for the 2012 elections, and how are the candidates succeeding in courting this key constituent group?
