Latino Millennial Voter Growth Outpacing Other Groups. Does It Matter?
How will Latino millennials impact the 2016 race and beyond? Well, it's hard to say.By Eugene Daniels | January 19, 2016
You know how politicians are always looking to get that millennial or Latino vote? Well now, there's an even stronger reason to converge those two groups: Latino millennials are projected to make up 44 percent of the Hispanic voting bloc, according to a new study by Pew Research Center.
Overall, Hispanic voters will make up 11.9 percent of U.S voters this year; that's almost even with black voters, which make up about 12.4 percent. And 11.9 million Hispanic millennials will be eligible to vote in 2016 compared to 9.9 million black millennial voters.
Youth being such a large part of the Latino vote is nothing new. It's the growth compared to other groups that's the most interesting.
