How might Latinos affect the outcome of the election?
Hispanics are the nation's largest and fastest growing minority group and loom as a potential "swing vote" in the 2008 presidential race because they are strategically located on the electoral college map in several swing states. Candidates in both parties court Latino voters. However, the candidates' heated debate around immigration risks alienating Latino voters. A recent survey by the Pew Hispanic Center shows Hispanic voters leaning away from the Republican Party in favor of the Democratic Party.
