NYT: Uptick In Hispanic Voters Could Send Clinton to White House

A surge in Hispanic voters during this presidential election could swing the final needle toward Democrat Hillary Clinton, according to a new analysis.

The New York Times' UpShot calculates there has already been a surge of Hispanic voters in early voting in several states. Further, there is an uptick in Hispanic likely voters for this election.

The Times reports that many of the states in which there are more Hispanic voters are not swing states and, therefore, will not alter the election turnout. But the increase in numbers alone may be enough, assuming the majority of them vote for Clinton, to overcome Trump's support among white voters.

Some swing states are in play, the Times notes, including Florida and Nevada. More than 15 percent of early voters in Florida marked themselves down as Hispanic on voter registration forms. In 2012, Florida's Hispanic voting bloc was 12 percent.

The Times also reports that Clinton leads in Nevada's early voting, helped by a strong Hispanic turnout.

RealClear Politics shows Florida is essentially tied heading into Tuesday's election. Trump has a 1.5-point lead in Nevada.

The results of a Pew Research Center survey released in early October showed Hispanic registered voters favored Clinton over Trump, 58 percent to 19 percent.
