Obama, Romney step up push for Hispanic votes
What’s shaping up to be a close election could hinge on a group of voters that hasn’t always felt it had much of a voice in American politics. Many analysts now say the Hispanic voting bloc will be the deciding factor in the 2012 presidential election.
“It’s becoming a swing vote,” explained Dario Moreno, political science professor at Florida International University.
Moreno said Hispanics might be the “deciding factor” in four states — Florida, New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada.
