If this is true, it’s a huge boon for the Democrats:
About 13.1 million Latinos are expected to vote in November’s general election – a boost from the last presidential race but still less than half of Hispanic eligible voters.
According to a report from the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, 1.9 million more Latinos are expected to vote this fall, up from 11.2 million in 2012 – an increase of 14.5 percent.
Although Latino turnout has steadily been on the rise in recently election cycles, the projected number still only accounts for 47.9 percent of the 27.3 million Latinos able to cast a ballot this fall.
Yes, this is far short of the turnout it would take to turn Texas purple, but given that Hillary/Bernie is going to get maybe 85% of the Latino vote against Trump, a 14.5% jump in that demographic is solid gold.
