With less than 20 days before the midterm elections, many Latino voters
have already decided that they don't plan on voting. This is bad news for the Democratic Party, as the Hispanic vote helped sweep Barack Obama into power in 2008, and recent studies show that Latino voters overwhelmingly favor Democratic candidates.
While the lack of enthusiasm among this bloc will likely not translate into votes for Republican candidates, it could be a deciding factor in tight races taking place in states with large Latino populations. Click play below to watch a video report:
Our New Approach to Comments
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss
– we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info
