  •  I am hoping that a Harry Reid effect is in play (11+ / 0-)

    in a lot of places. Unexpectedly large Latino turnout due to serious under-polling of Spanish-only households. Is this a reasonable thought?

      Probably not.  But I am not an expert.  There was another poll written about on Kos.  Here

      Reminds me of Pete Wilson, Prop 187 (CA, 1994).  Papers Please, Sheriff Joe and other Arizona anti-Latino policy has consequences.  And Arizona voters are having their voices heard where it counts most, at the ballot box.

      Si Se Puede! Viva Obama! Viva Latino Vote!

        Hadn't heard that one -- the alliteration works even better in Spanish than in English, I think.

          coined the phrase years ago.  

          SVREP's mission is to empower Latinos and other minorities by increasing their participation in the American democratic process. We do this by strengthening the capacity, experience and skills of Latino leaders, networks, and organizations through programs that consistently train, organize, finance, development, expand and mobilize Latino leaders and voters around an agenda that reflects their values. Thus, SVREP's motto: "Su Voto Es Su Voz" (Your Vote is Your Voice).

      In Nevada the Democratic ground game is supposed to be awesome. The unions in the Las Vegas hotels are ORGANIZED and get their people to vote. But in Arizona, not so much. :-(
