Latino Decisions released a poll today detailing how Tejanos (Texas Latinos) feel about various issues. The most important poll, though, is at your polling location. Find yours and go vote!
Here are the highlights:
Most Important Issues
- Jobs/Economy – 28%
- Immigration – 43%
- Health Care/Medicaid – 17%
- Education/Schools – 22%
I’m voting in 2014 because…
- I wanted to support the Democratic candidate – 40%
- I wanted to support the Republican candidate – 16%
- I wanted to support and represent the Latino community – 34%
How important is the issue of immigration in your decision to vote, and who to vote for.
- Most important – 33%
- One of the most important – 36%
- Somewhat important – 17%
60% of Texas Latinos know someone who is undocumented, according to the poll.
Well, there you have it. By the looks of it, Republicans don’t have a shot at much of the Latino vote. But it is all about turnout today. So, go vote!
IN OTHER STATES
There are some states that were the cause for President Obama’s delay on executive action, such as North Carolina. In North Carolina, immigration was the most important issue for Latinos at 57%. 45% in Colorado. 57% in Georgia. Just food for thought as we await tonight’s results.
Yes, there are lines most everywhere. Don’t leave! Vote! And know your rights!
Mark Twain is Still A Polling Location
Before 7AM, I received an e-mail informing me that the Mark Twain Elementary School polling location had signs telling folks to vote elsewhere. DON’T! The Ann Johnson Campaign was on the spot and called the County to confirm that if you vote at Mark Twain, vote at Mark Twain.
It’s a sad tactic, but that is the world in which we live. Fight back by voting! And if you vote at Mark Twain, VOTE ANN JOHNSON for HD-134.
