As If Republicans Didn’t Have Enough To Worry About

Political Wire reports that Hispanic vote surged between 2004 and 2008.

A new Census report estimates that “there were 9.745 million Hispanic voters in 2008, compared to 7.587 million in 2004 — an increase of 28.4%,” Josh Goodman reports. 

“Overall, an estimated 131.114 million Americans voted in 2008, compared to 125.736 million in 2004, an increase of just 4.3%. Another way of looking at it: there were 5.4 million additional votes cast in 2008 compared to 2004 and about 2.2 million of them were cast by Hispanics.”

We know that President Obama took 67% of the vote. With the performance of the GOP and Republican senators during the Sotomayor hearings, I have a feeling I know in which direction that percentage will be traveling.

Keep it up, guys. Doing great!
