Based on our analysis, Obama may have narrowly won CA if it weren’t for strong Latino voter support for Clinton.

Although McCain won five points ahead of Romney, analysis by the NALEO Educational Fund using exit poll data shows that if no Latino had voted in that election, Romney would have won by several percentage points.__________________9.7 million Latinos voted in November– 28% more than 2004. The non-Latino vote increased by 3%.Latino voters comprised 7.4% of all voters in the 2008 general election – up from 6% in 2004.Decisive role in CO and NM; growing influence in IN and VA.
