What Will Latino Votes Mean For The 2016 Elections?

A new poll from the Spanish-language broadcaster Univision has some bad news for Republicans. Democrats once again hold a big lead among Latino voters going into the next presidential campaign.

But there are a few bright spots for Republicans. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush has made big strides in closing the gap in a hypothetical matchup against Hillary Clinton, and both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have Latino parents.

Univision news anchor Maria Elena Salinas joins Here & Now’s Peter O’Dowd to explain why Democrats should not take Latino votes for granted.
