Based on these data points, this year’s report identifies a number of key House and Senate races where the Hispanic vote may prove decisive.
- Nationally, Hispanics account for 13.1% of the eligible voter population. In 10 of the twelve races profiled in this report, Hispanics account for a larger share of the eligible voter population than the national rate.

Daniel Garza, President of The LIBRE Institute, released the following statement:
“With each passing year, the voice of the Latino community becomes more and more influential in American culture and politics. In recent years, the Hispanic MVP report has done a great job of identifying key races in which the Latino community – through the power of the vote – may decide who represents a state or district. It will be critical for candidates of any party to win the support of Latinos by showing that they are listening, and they have a plan to make the lives of those constituents better.”
