WEBINAR: The Influence of Hispanic Voters on This Year's National Elections
- Dr. Federico Subervi, Professor and Director of the Center for the Study of Latino Media & Markets at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Texas State University-San Marcos
- Gabriel R. Sanchez, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, University of New Mexico and Research Director, Latino Decisions
Will Hispanics be the deciding factor in choosing the president and the makeup of the next Congress? How will Latinos vote -- as a monolithic block, varied because of social/cultural issues (i.e, President Obama's statement on supporting gay marriage) or will there be state and regional differences (Florida's CubanAmerican community vs. Mexican-Americans from California) and what are likely outcomes? But equally important how are Congressional and presidential candidates courting Latinos and are their strategies working? In the end, Hispanic-Americans continue to be an important and growing influence on US politics and that will be discussed.
