Podcast: Latino Voters Take Center Stage in the Race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination

Latino voters were pivotal in Hillary Clinton’s recent victories in Texas, California, and New Mexico. According to the Pew Hispanic Center exit polls show that, “Latinos accounted for at least 30% of the total votes cast in the Democratic primary (in those states), and Clinton outpolled Sen. Barack Obama among Latinos by a ratio of about two-to-one.”

When and how did Latino voters gain this level of political power? What are the implications for the rest of the primary campaign and the general election? What are GOP Senator John McCain’s chances of winning significant Latino support?

In this Podcast veteran journalist and Feet in Two Worlds reporter Pilar Marrero takes an in-depth look at these questions. Marrero is the senior political writer at La Opinión, the leading Spanish-Language daily in Los Angeles. In a conversation with FI2W executive producer John Rudolph, Marrero also discusses historical trends that have given Latino voters unprecedented clout at the ballot box this year.
