Andrea Althoff of DePaul University and the University of Chicago Divinity School has a short but nuanced take on the question, how will Latinos vote next year? Read the whole thing at History News Network.

The shorter, less-nuanced version, generalizing across many different nationalities and experiences, is that "Latino Catholics still outnumber Latino Protestants to a large extent, and these Latino Catholics prefer by and large the Democratic Party over the GOP....In the long run, however, the Republican Party may benefit from the conversion of Catholic Hispanics to Protestantism."
