G.O.P. Pursues Hispanic Votes with Pro-Life Stance
Posted by Staff

The New York Times:

Following this summer’s divisive abortion debate in the State Legislature, Texas Republicans see an opening for the 2014 election as they work to reach out to Hispanic voters who could be spurred to the polls by the party’s anti-abortion stance.

But Democrats see the plan as a losing proposition for Republicans, arguing that the reputation of most Hispanics as socially conservative is inaccurate and that Hispanics tend to side with Democrats on the issues that matter most to them.

As Texas’ demographics continue to shift, it is easy to see why both sides covet the Hispanic vote. The state’s population is 38 percent Hispanic. Although less than one-third of eligible voters in Texas today are Hispanic, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, Hispanics are expected to make up a plurality of the population by 2020.
