July 15, 2010.- Following up on Jesse’s new piece on why anti-GOP backlash hasn’t appeared among Latino voters, a poll released today gives additional insight into how how Latinos will vote this November.

According to the study from LatinoMetrics, the Hispanic Federation and the League of United Latin American Citizens, 13 percent of Latinos identify as Republicans, versus 54 percent who identify as Democrats. The number of Latino voters is set to increase, with one in four of those not currently registered to vote telling pollsters they will register before the November elections.

Comprehensive immigration reform is a big issue for Latino voters, with 65 percent of voters indicating they want to see reform this year. If legislation doesn’t materialize, polling data indicates that somewhere between 25 percent and 33 percent of those who want to see reform this year would stay home from the polls in November.
