NEWS BREAK: Exit Polls Suggest Latinos Are In Favor Of Gay Marriage

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

For a variety of reasons, Latinos are often considered a more culturally conservative group, regardless of how they vote in elections. However, recent exit polls suggest that Latinos — despite their “culturally conservative” reputations — are overwhelmingly in favor of legalizing gay marriage.

The Huffington Post reports that “nearly six-in-ten Latino voters (59%) said their state should legally recognize same-sex marriage while 32% said their state should not…Non-Hispanic whites were the most opposed to states legally sanctioning same-sex marriage (47% favored but 50% were opposed).” While so-called “evangelical” Latinos are staunchly opposed to gay marriage, the so-called “mainstream” Latinos are more culturally accepting.

The analysis amongst the political pundits at The Huffington Post suggest that this new trend is yet another signal to the GOP — who took a beating in the elections because they failed to attract the so-called “Latino vote” — that they need to change their hard-line stance against gay marriage if they wish to win back their Latino base.
