Hispanic Voters Source of Strength in Battleground States

By admin

Since the last congressional elections, the number of Hispanics voting has increased. This is good news for the Democrats and Barack Obama, who could receive more votes in the election as a result of this higher Hispanic turnout. A recent government report shows that from 2002 to 2006, 18% more Hispanics took to the polls than before. In states like Florida, New Mexico, Colorado, and Nevada that had previously been Bush strongholds, McCain could have a harder time winning because of the new Hispanic strength. This is good news for the Obama camp, but we’ll have to wait until the election and see how things actually pan out.
