Democratic Group Says Hispanic Voters Run to Democratic Party

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s aggressive campaigns in the Hispanic community are showing positive results. New numbers released by the NDN, a progressive think-tank and advocacy organization, show that Hispanics are embracing the Democratic Party more than ever before. The data released Wednesday show that Hispanics have voted in record numbers this year, tripling their turnout from the 2004 primaries, and increasing their share of the vote in the Democratic primaries by 66 percent. The NDN report is based on an analysis of a variety of polls and exit polls conducted during this year’s primary elections.The NDN report said that of Hispanics who voted in the presidential primaries this year 78 percent voted Democratic. The NDN, formerly known as the New Democratic Network, credits these numbers to changes in Democratic Party campaign strategy since Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., was the Democratic nominee in 2004.”The Democratic Party has woken up and gets it. This is why the Republicans should be very worried. I think John Kerry’s campaign was a little bit slow. That is not the case in 2008, the Democrats clearly understand the Hispanics’ relevance,” said Simon Rosenberg, president and founder of NDN.
