Latino Voters in the 2012 Election

by Mark Hugo Lopez and Paul Taylor

Latinos voted for President Barack Obama over Republican Mitt Romney by 71% to 27%, according to an analysis of exit polls by the Pew Hispanic Center, a Project of the Pew Research Center.1

Obama’s national vote share among Hispanic voters is the highest seen by a Democratic candidate since 1996, when President Bill Clinton won 72% of the Hispanic vote.

The Center’s analysis finds that Latinos made up 10% of the electorate, as indicated by the national exit poll, up from 9% in 2008 and 8% in 2004.2 The analysis also shows that as a group, non-white voters made up 28% of the nation’s electorate, up from 26% in 2008.3

  1. One of the things that is coming out of the last election is
    ~ ” Health Care Reform” or “Obamacare” or “Affordable Healthcare Act” … or como nosotros los lations decimos “Seguros Medicos Baratos”.

    It’s important to know that this new law will help and affect many of those latinos who voted for the President in the past election.

    We must be ready for the major changes that are about to hit the Healthcare Industry…

    Buena Suerte.
