I thought this was an interesting stat from New Mexico that Obama mentioned. I tend to believe that this trend is true throughout alot of the swing states and could be key to Obama winning the election.

Right now national polls have Obama winning the Hispanic vote 65-35. In comparison Bush only lost the Hispanic vote 55-45

The Hispanic community will play a critical role in this election. Some of the closest contests this November will be in states like Florida, Colorado, Nevada, and here in New Mexico Ė states with large Hispanic populations.


And if you have any doubt about whether you can make a difference, just remember how, back in 2004, 40,000 registered Hispanic voters in New Mexico didnít turn out on Election Day. Senator Kerry lost this state by fewer than 6,000 votes. 6,000 votes. And today, in 2008, an estimated 170,000 Hispanics in New Mexico arenít registered to vote.

Dude, the key to this election are 2 fold. The extent of the "Bradley effect", and how many extra voters, Obama can get to the polls to offset it.

I agree with you but one of the largest and expanding voting blocks is the Hispanic vote especially in swing states like New Mexico but more importantly Colorado.
