Latinos are a large and growing demographic group in the United States, but do the numbers translate into voting influence? Gary M. Segura, professor at Stanford University, and Matt Barreto, professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, are co-founders of Latino Decisions, a nonpartisan research firm. In their new book, Latino America: How America’s Most Dynamic Population is Poised to Transform the Politics of the Nation (PublicAffairs, 2014), they talk about issues that unite the group and what that might mean for the electorate.
