Pew Hispanic Center Releases Report on Hispanics and the 2008 Election

I have voted Democrat and Republican; true to form I have swung to the Democrat side for the coming election in November 2008. The national Republican Party does not want the Hispanic vote. The Republican party will be reduced a regional party. This will cause a shake up as the current extremist in control will be pushed to the sidelines. The moderate will have a voice again. The best way to help this process occur is to vote for the Democrats. Here is an study by the Per Hispanic Center;

"The gains that the Republican Party had been making this decade in partisan affiliation among Latinos have dissipated in the past year, according to a new Pew Hispanic Center survey of Latino registered voters. The Democratic-over-Republican partisan affiliation edge (identifiers and leaners included), which had been 33 percentage points in 1999, then fell to 21 percentage points by 2006, is now back up to 34 percentage points.

The report also examines the potential of Hispanics to be a swing voting block in the 2008 election. Though they make up only a relatively small share of the nationwide electorate, Hispanics comprise a larger share of voters in four of the six "swing states" that President Bush carried by margins of five percentage points or fewer in 2004 – New Mexico, Florida, Nevada and Colorado. The report presents state-by-state data on the most recent eligibility and turnout trends of the Latino electorate.

The report is available at the Pew Hispanic Center's website, www.pewhispanic.org.

The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, is a non-partisan, non-advocacy research organization based in Washington, D.C. and funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts".
