Hispanic Evangelicals

In the wake of yesterday's LULAC meeting, the Obama campaign was on the phone with 30 Hispanic evangelical pastors this a.m., and Brody's got the story. Hispanic evangelicals have been an interesting swing vote over the past few election cycles, going to the GOP in the early part of the decade and then edging back into the Democratic column in the 2006 congressional vote. They are not, in a word, the solid Democratic constituency that their Catholic brethren are. They represent 2.7 percent of the population (as opposed to Latino Catholics' 4.2 percent), and it looks like Obama's well on his way to locking them up.
