  •  Another word about the Latino polulation: (4+ / 0-)

    Not only is s it increasing as a percentage of the total population, but more Latinos are getting citizenship and will be able to vote.  This is much the same as what happened with immigrants from southern and eastern Europe in the 1930's.  

    The ruling elites were able to keep these groups at bay in the 1920's (with the help of the KKK), but by the following decade a larger PERCENTAGE of these groups were voting and the New Deal was immensely popular among among Italians, Jews, Poles, etc.
