It’s no secret that American demographics are changing. According to the 2012 U.S. Census, Hispanic Americans make up 17% of the country, but only 27% of registered Latino voters voted for Republican candidate Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential Election.
CNN Republican strategist Ana Navarro feels, that the low Latino voter turn out is a clear example that more needs to be done to appeal to Hispanic voters before the next presidential election!
Here are 5 important reminders to follow in order to successfully court the Hispanic vote, before the upcoming election:
#1 “Latino voters are just like every other American voter, we just happen to be of Hispanic descent.”
#2 “If you want to run for president in 2016, you’ve got to begin now, and it’d help if you got yourself some Rosetta Stone and started picking up some Spanish phrases!”
#3 “The first thing you got to do is understand that Hispanics are not a homogenous blob. We are all different. We come from different places.”
#4 “The country is shifting. The attitudes are shifting and we’ve got to let that shift happen naturally.”
#5 “There’s not one thing that’s enough. There’s not one silver bullet to win any group of voters.”
