In addition to our voter registration and civic engagement work, we also commission some of the most exciting research on Latino political trends.  One of our recent studies was picked up by Time Magazine:

In 2006, 36% of Florida’s 1.1 million registered Latino voters were Republicans, while 31% were Democrats and 26% independent. In 2008, however, when the total rose to 1.35 million, 38% were suddenly Democrats, 33% GOP and 28% independent. A 2008 poll by the Miami-based non-partisan group Democracia U.S.A. shows that since 2000 Latino voters in the Sunshine State registered as independent increased about 10%, while the percentage of Florida Latinos backing Republican candidates has fallen 13 points.”
