Pew Estimates Latino Voter Impact

Latino voters might make the biggest voting impact in New Mexico, according to a new report by the Pew Hispanic Center.

Latinos in New Mexico are 38 percent of eligible voters, the Pew Hispanic Center reported in a recently released profile of voters eligible to vote in November.

The Center issued fact sheets for each state, with facts such as New Mexico's Hispanic population is the ninth-largest in the nation.

Following New Mexico, Latinos in Texas are 25 percent of all voters, and Latinos in California are 24 percent of all eligible voters.

The Center, along with "Mapping the Latino Electorate," their new interactive map, provides a profile of each state's voters.
