Black Turnout Down... Latino Up?

If you also click on the link, towards the bottom of the article, gives some interesting trends on early voting.



In many areas that offer early voting, blacks have showed up in lower numbers than Democrats – who the electorate traditionally has favored – had counted on to help give Hillary Clinton the edge she desperately needs in what has become an unexpectedly tight race.

But Latinos, another group that Democrats have been banking on, are turning out in larger numbers than anticipated, and they very well may be the ones who give the party’s presidential nominee the margin of victory.

The tens of millions of early votes cast point to strength from Democratic-leaning Latino voters, potentially giving Clinton a significant advantage in Nevada and Colorado. With more than half the votes already cast in those states, Democrats are matching if not exceeding their successful 2012 pace, according to data compiled by The Associated Press.

"We are seeing the trajectory of the election change in some states, but Democrats are also making up ground," said Michael McDonald, a University of Florida professor and expert in voter turnout.

Clinton, to be sure, continues to maintain an apparent edge over GOP nominee Donald Trump, with roughly one-fourth of all expected ballots cast in the 2016 election.

The Democrat's campaign once hoped to bank substantial votes from Democrats in North Carolina and Florida before Election Day. Both are must-win states for Donald Trump.

Many of these critical states, such as Arizona, Nevada, Florida, and Texas, report that Latinos are thronging to the polls in noticeably larger numbers – relative to their population – than many other groups.

But data on early voting suggests Clinton is not doing as well as President Barack Obama in 2012. Besides the fallout in African American turnout, ballot requests from likely supporters overall have been weak in parts of the Midwest.

That is where the Latino turnout can be pivotal. Long called the "Sleeping Giant," there are 27 million eligible Latino voters, 16 million of whom have registered to vote. Some 13 million of them are expected to vote on Nov. 8. The total Latino U.S. population is about 54 million.

Early voting — by mail and at polling stations — is underway in 37 states. More than 31 million votes have been cast, representing nearly 25 percent of the total votes expected nationwide if turnout is similar to 2012. In all, more than 46 million people — or as much as 40 percent of the electorate — are expected to vote before Tuesday, according to AP data.

The results of those votes won't be known until polls close next week. But early voting data — party affiliation, race and other details — are being carefully examined for clues about the ballots that have been cast so far.

This is actually good news as the percentage of Latinos that vote for Trump is much higher than the percentage of Blacks.  Who can guess what the next post in this thread will be?

Is that what happened?  LOL!  I thought the Admin removed it.  I must have hit Modify but I was trying to reply to it to point out where I was guessing exactly what your next post would say and I was absolutely 100% right. Thank goodness you have preserved my original post and I still stand by it!  There is noting inaccurate in my statement that "this is actually good news as the percentage of Latinos that vote for Trump is much higher than the percentage of blacks."
