Courting the Latino Vote


June 23-30 Podcast

An interview with Karen Sue Smith about her article, "Courting the Latino Voter," from the June 23-30 issue of America. Listen to this episode
Karen Sue Smith, editorial director of America, analyzes the Latino vote and its potential impact on the 2008 election. Nearly 18 million Latinos are registered to vote, 4 million more than in 2004, and their numbers are growing in states throughout the country, not just in the Southwest. Interestingly, immigration is not the number one issue for these voters–the war and the economy have taken precedence in recent polls. Read Smith’s article on Latino voters from the June 23-30 issue of America. Listen to this episode
