    In this special episode we have New York Times Writer Jenny Medina on to discuss her recent article  “With Voters From Both Parties Energized, Campaigns Begin Fall Sprint” New York Times.

    “Republicans are focusing on pocketbook issues, and Democrats are emphasizing abortion rights, as Labor Day marks the start of the midterm elections’ final stretch.” Will this skew the midterms toward Democrats or Republicans? 

    Also - the most extensive poll of Arizona Latino voters yet this year reveals 42% of Latinos said nobody had contacted them about this year’s midterm election. Why is this happening?

Lots for me to learn

Mike Madrid is back! Mike has a gift for making demographics in culture & politics easier to learn. Mr. Rocha gives great examples of on the ground activism and personal ad making for each culture within the Latin universe. I never understood this top down works.

Would love to hear a podcast on similar issues in cultures like Haitian, African American, Asians.

Good advice that Democrats need to listen to

As a lifelong Democrat, I have to agree with much that is presented in these podcasts specifically regarding the differences between the different Hispanic/Latin communities and their priorities. Pray Democrats listen to their advice and act accordingly. Mike Madrid & Chuck Rocha know what they’re talking about. As a Republican Mike especially know how they think & what they are capable of doing. Democrats need to pay attention to what they’re saying.

Really good so far

Ok I admit I’ve listened to only one episode, but it’s a very fascinating listen to changes and trends in the Latino demographic. Worth listening to even if you’re not a politico. Useful information to academics, business folks, sociologists, educators…
