President Barack Obama took Nevada on his path to re-election over Republican challenger Mitt Romney, in part behind support from women and Hispanics.
Latino voters were initially pegged as one of the more influential groups in the election, one of the most necessary demographics to win over to ensure a general victory. But reported declines in both Latino voter registration and participation, and overall growth of the Latino population of Las Vegas and other major cities, all reflect a national trend that could ultimately curb the influence Hispanic voters have in the 2012 election.
Determined to retain their majority in the U.S. Senate, Democratic candidates are trying to replicate the strategy that boosted President Barack Obama’s election in 2008 by courting Hispanic voters at cultural events and Spanish-language meetings in swing states across the nation.
