"The Latino share of Nevada’s population grew from 10 percent in 1990 to nearly 20 percent in 2000, and hit 26.6 percent in 2010."

Do not be fooled by the numbers. Many Hispanics are children and illegal aliens and can vote.

Hispanics/Latinos as a group are least likely to vote even if citizen. In 2008 Hispanics were 7.4% of the total voters.

"disproportionally Hispanics are children and thus not allowed to vote.

Third, many Hispanics are not citizen, and thus not allowed to vote. In the 2008 election only 9.5% of the citizen population was Hispanic.

Fourth, Hispanics are less likely to vote than other groups, even if citizen. In the 2008 election, only 7.4% of voters were Hispanic.

Fifth, not all Hispanic voters support amnesty. Of Hispanic voters, 37% of Hispanics supported deporting illegal immigrants rather than fining them and than giving them a pathway to citizenship. So the pro-immigration Hispanics vote in 2008 was only 5.4% of the total vote."
