One Week Out, New Polling and Immigration Voter Guide Highlight the Power of the Latino Vote
In Contrast to Overall Voters, Democrats Enjoy Advantage in Enthusiasm Among Latinos
WASHINGTON - October 25 - One week before the midterm elections, Matt Barreto of Latino Decisions and Frank Sharry of America's Voice hosted a press call today to review the races Latino voters will help decide on November 2, and present new polling on voter sentiment heading into the mid-term elections.According to Latino Decisions, which has been conducting weekly tracking polls of Latino voters since September: "For the fourth straight week, we find an increase in the percentage of Latino registered voters who report being very enthusiastic about voting in November 2010. Four weeks ago just 40.3% of Latinos said they were very enthusiastic, and today that figures reaches 58.3%. Self-reported turnout certainty remained constant at 75.1% from one week ago, up 10 point from four weeks ago. As election day draws near, and early voting is in full swing, Latinos are reportedly showing more and more interest and enthusiasm. In response to the ‘don't vote' campaign, Univision and Telemundo are both increasing their get-out-the-vote public service announcements, and Latino civic groups such as NALEO, NCLR, Mi Familia Vota and others are doubling their efforts to mobilize Latino voters down the stretch. With close statewide elections for Governor and U.S. Senate in nearly a dozen states with sizable Latino electorates, Latino voter turnout could make the difference in many of these contests."
