Description:

Will Hispanics be the deciding factor in choosing the president and the makeup of the next Congress? How will Latinos vote -- as a monolithic block, varied because of social/cultural issues (i.e, President Obama's statement on supporting gay marriage) or will there be state and regional differences (Florida's CubanAmerican community vs. Mexican-Americans from California) and what are likely outcomes? But equally important how are Congressional and presidential candidates courting Latinos and are their strategies working? In the end, Hispanic-Americans continue to be an important and growing influence on US politics and that will be discussed.
