The Future is Ours: How Demographic Change and Latino Voters are Changing American Politics in 2016 and Beyond
Dr. Gary M. Segura, Morris M. Doyle Centennial Professor of Public Policy, Stanford University
From 1996 to 2016, the number of Latinos voting in U.S. General Elections has jumped from 4.9 million to an estimated 13.1 million. Dr. Gary Segura has been studying this phenomenon and has now co-written a book, “Latino America” How America’s Most Dynamic Population is Poise to Transform the Politics of the Nation.” Dr. Segura explains how this trend has affected the American political landscape. He points out that this trend will continue far into the future, as the Latino vote will double in the next 20 years. He notes this will happen “even if not one additional Latino immigrant comes to the United States.”
Presentation Time: 1 hour, 36 minutes
