Hispanic Vote Up For Grabs

Recent results of data analysis performed by Polidata on the 2004 Presidential elections provides insight into the Hispanic vote. According to a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Polidata's findings tend to confirm exit polls that showed George W. Bush gaining nine percentage points among Hispanic voters, ending up with some 44%. Examination of Texas, California, and Florida, three states with many Hispanic House members confirms that President Bush made strong gains in predominantly Hispanic districts. The Hispanic vote is clearly competitive and both the GOP and the Democrats are well positioned to seek it. It is not clear how important liberal immigration policies are to winning the Hispanic vote but common sense suggests that expanded immigration policy would play a role in gaining the Hispanic vote. All this will come to bear in policy very soon as the REAL ID/legalization issues are debated by politicians in DC.
