Hispanic voters 2008

    The rising political clout of Hispanic voters. First we’ll hear about a new population projection from the Pew Hispanic Center. In 2005 Hispanics accounted for 14 percent of the U.S. population, that’s expected to increase to 29 percent by 2050. We’ll talk with JEFFREY PASSEL co-author of the new report, then we’ll look at the role Hispanic voters are playing in this year’s Presidential election. Our two guests are LUIS CLEMENS editor of Candidato USA, an internet publication that helps clients reach Hispanic voters and MARISA ABRAJANO co-author of a forthcoming research article The Hispanic Voter in the 2004 Presidential Election.
