Throughout this project I will be analyzing the shift in the Latino vote across more recent Presidential elections. I want to highlight this as a topic because the Latino vote has never been united, why? Different latino groups favor different parties and in this project I explain why and how some groups have shifted their vote to a different party regarding different political issue stances. Latinos should be a united front and a vote parties could count on but when their vote is about 60 - 40, it's hard to know which way they'll sway. Ultimately why are different groups in the Latino community favoring the parties they do? This is based on many factors which we will emphasize throughout the project. After collecting data results from recent presidential elections and cross examining the Latino vote it will explain furthermore into why the latino vote has shifted.

A senior psychology/political science double major, always been interested in politics. As a Latina, I've always been interested in issues regarding minorities. Recently with the very controversial political issues in America, I wanted to dig into how they have affected voting patterns within the Latino community. I am planning to move to Spain for a year to fully immerse myself into their culture and language. When returning I hope to go to law school and become an immigration lawyer.
