The Role of the Latino Vote in the 2016 Presidential Election

February 29, 2016

CLALS and the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies jointly sponsored the 2nd Annual Latino Public Affairs Forum, which considered the impact of the Latino vote on the 2016 presidential election cycle. Expert panelists discussed the following key questions:

  • What effects might Republican discourse and positions during the primary process have on this growing block of voters and how might these affect the election?
  • Are Democrats effectively building on or losing their historical advantage among Latinos?
  • Are there other, perhaps unforeseen, factors that might come into play to help determine the impact of the Latino vote on the election?

Over 100 guests attended the event and watched the livestream.
