  4. Nov 11 - Undercounting Latino Vote

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    November 11, 2010
    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1111.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Undercounting Latino Vote - Latino Decisions
    http://latinodecisions.wordpress.com/2010/11/04/how-the-national-exit-poll-badly-missed-the-latino-vote-in-2010/
    points out that most polls, including exit polls, in the recent
    election systematically undercounted Latino support for
    Democrats.  This discrepancy showed up most dramatically in
    states with a high percentage of Latino voters, the Nevada Senate
    race being the prime example (where Sen. Reid who had been the
    underdog in almost all polls pulled off a convincing victory over
    the Republican candidate in large part due to the undercounted
    Latino vote). Latino Decisions attributes the undercounting of
    Latino votes to the low incidence of bilingual interviewing which
    resulted in the over-representation  of higher income and higher
    education Latinos. As the percentage of Latino voters in the
    electorate keeps rising year by year, these variances between
    polls and actual votes are likely to be magnified. Future
    pollsters may have to either (a) start polling in Spanish also
    and/or (b) introduce a "weighting" mechanism to account for this
    systemic error. Psephology, the science of polling, is yet
    another field affected as America's immigration story continues
    to unfold.
