Latino Voters Could Decide Presidential Election

Univision Online, Posted: Aug 28, 2008

MIAMILatino voters could decide this years presidential election, suggests a Univision online news report. The news report references a report by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO), which focuses on the concerns of Latino voters. Among their concerns are high medical costs, health insurance, education, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and their highest concern is increased discrimination against Latinos because of the immigration debate. Latino voters are new and improved, more sophisticated and more demanding, the news report said. Speaking Spanish, or drinking a cafecito is no longer enough to get the Latino votes. Latino votes are especially important in New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada and Florida, where the percentage of voters is large enough to decide the outcome in a close race. This year, there are 1.2 million more Latino voters than there were in 2004. NALEO projected that on Nov. 4, more than 9.2 million Latinos will cast their ballots.
