WAIT, WE LET THEM VOTE TOO?:
Latino voting surge rattles Trump campaign : 'A certain group' appears to be turning out in big numbers in several key states. (STEVEN SHEPARD 11/06/16, Politico)
Hispanic voters could be poised to deliver a historic rebuke to Donald Trump and the Republican Party.Early-vote statistics from battleground states with large Hispanic populations show record turnout among a bloc that has voted at a lower rate than whites or blacks in past elections. If, as some polls suggest, Hispanic voters are supporting Hillary Clinton by blowout margins, these numbers could sink Trump in a handful of states that are essential to his path to 270 electoral votes.In Nevada, Latino turnout propelled Democrats in Clark County -- the population center that's home to Las Vegas -- to a record-breaking close on Friday, driving up the Democratic lead in early ballots cast to 72,000. That's enough, according to veteran Nevada political analyst Jon Ralston, to essentially tie a bow on the state for Clinton.
