Latinos, Religion and Politics

October 20th, 2012 · No Comments

Another survey was recently released showing that Latino voters may not be as conservative as the conventional wisdom suggests, especially in regards to same sex marriage. This new Pew Hispanic Center and the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life survey shows that half of Latinos surveyed support allowing gays and lesbians to marry with one-third of the community being opposed to gay marriage. Data that came out in April of this year from an earlier survey also showed Latino support for gay marriage outpacing that of the general population in the US.

This new Pew survey also revealed a bit more about Latino evangelicals and how they are the slice of the Latino electorate that seems to be most in play in terms of a larger portion of this group having strong support for Mitt Romney.
