Nov 11 - Undercounting Latino Vote

Rating: 5 votes, 5.00 average.

-----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

November 11, 2010,1111.shtm


1. Comment: Undercounting Latino Vote - Latino Decisions
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.
