Is a large and growing segment of Hispanic American voters now leaning independent? That’s the operative question in this first episode on Hispanic swing voters, featuring three noted experts: former Florida Congressman Carlos Curbelo, UT San Antonio political scientist Dr. Sharon Navarro, and former four-term San Antonio Mayor and Clinton Cabinet member, Dr. Henry Cisneros.
Carlos Curbelo suggests the recent shift of some Latinos to the GOP may be due to discomfort with far left rhetoric.
Dr. Sharon Navarro observes many Hispanic voters may be registered to a political party yet remain “persuadable.”
Tune in for a better understanding of the less purely partisan viewpoints characterizing Hispanic American swing voters.
