Despite his narrow loss in Nevada, Democrat Bernie Sanders scored one victory that was not thought possible just a few months ago: he closed the Latino voter gap with Hillary Clinton.
Back in 2008, Latinos in the state voted for Hillary Clinton 2-to-1. Eight years later, after several more months of outreach by the Clinton campaign, Sanders and Clinton broke just about even.
But, what Clinton lacked in Latino votes, she more than made up for with African Americans; 76 percent of caucus-goers turned out for her.
So, what do this weekend’s results tell us about the future role of minority voters?
Take Two put that question to three guests:
Luis DeSipio, professor of political science and Latino studies at UC Irvine
Yvette Williams, chair of the Clark County Black Caucus in Nevada
Adolphus Belk Jr, professor of political science and African American Studies at Winthrop University in South Carolina
