In 2012, Forio worked with Latino Decisions and America Votes to visualize the potential impact of the Latino Vote on the 2012 election. With more than 22 million Latinos eligible to vote in the 2012 election, we created a visualization that illustrated their collective electoral influence.
The tool allows users to adjust both the percentage of the United States electorate that is Latino, and the percentage of that electorate voting for the GOP candidate. Users can quickly experiment with varying voter possibilities and election possibilities — and see for themselves the significant impact the Latino electorate has on election results.
Dr. Matt Barreto, co-founder and managing partner of Latino Decisions, was featured on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.” discussing the visualization and the importance of the Latino electorate. Watch the video here.
