Charles Kuffner Analyzes Abbott’s Appeal Among Latino Voters

After the November 2014 election, some fairly iffy exit-polling suggested that Abbott had swayed around 44% of the Latino vote statewide. That percentage seemed high, and so Charles Kuffner took the effort to actually look at the numbers.

The results? You should see for yourself. Briefly, (1) yes, Abbott did better with Latinos in 2014 than Perry had in 2010, presumably because people didn’t know who he was; (2) no, he did not poll 44% of the Latino vote; (3) Latino support for Republican candidates varies across the state; and (4) if Democrats hope to do well, they must improve voter registration and turnout among voting-age Latinos.

Mr. Kuffner has other interesting thoughts on racial demographics and the 2014 election, as well. Check it out.
