Voter Attitudes

With the 2008 elections less than two weeks away, we thought you would be
interested in this overview of Hispanic voter attitudes by Mark Hugo Lopez
and Susan Minushkin of the Pew Hispanic Center:

The articles notes that

* Some 65 percent of Latino registered voters said they identify with or
lean toward the Democratic Party, compared with just 26 percent who
identify with or lean toward the Republican Party.

* Among Hispanic registered voters, 94 percent said they plan to vote in
this year's presidential election.

* In 2004, 47 percent of Latino eligible voters reported having voted in
the presidential election, compared with 60 percent of black eligible
voters and 67 percent of white eligible voters.
