Kerry Has Strong Advantage Among Latino Voters
Majority of Hispanics Surveyed Disapprove of Bush's Handling of Economy and Iraq War

Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) holds a strong lead over President Bush among the nation's Hispanic voters, with a majority rejecting the president's handling of the economy and the war in Iraq, according to a survey by The Washington Post, Univision and the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute.
At a time when Bush and Kerry are running about even among all registered voters, Kerry enjoys a 2 to 1 advantage over Bush among Latino registered voters. Hispanics give Bush lower approval ratings than the overall population does, and the poll shows that the bulk of the Latino community continues to identify with the Democratic Party.
THe Hispanic Congressional Cacus can be added to endorsing Kerry as well.
Many of the groups comprising the 20 are so small as to be insignificant.
Latinos are an extremely diverse group, and can't be lumped together like the African American voting bloc. Of key importance & dismay for Team Bush? His unrealistic sanctions & restrictions against Cuba, all for the sake of the old guard Cuban Floridians, has completely alienated the younger Cuban bloc, which typically would have voted Republican. Now, a key -in-the-bank-bloc is lost to Bush.

Kerry in an inter racial marriage??? No way??? Mrs Heinz Kerry is as a white as snow - she is portuguese not Hispanic. Vast difference to someone who grew up as part of the priviledged people in Southern Africa ( Mozambique and South Africa).

nice article, but a bit old especially in an election cycle. In July, Kerry was up big time. I put out an article that was dated today and you come back with a document from July. A lot has happened since then, the conventions, the debates, and other things. Blacks, Latino's, Women, and other minorities are moving towards Bush. That is why Clinton is running around in traditional strong area's for Kerry. Trying to sure up the base.
