The Hispanic vote is a big prize to win this election. So, it’s no shocker that President Obama stopped in Kern County Monday to announce a new monument for long time Civil Rights activist Cesar Chavez.
“Si se puede! Si se puede! Si se puede!” he yelled from the podium.

“Our world is a better place because Cesar Chavez decided to change it,” President Obama said as hundreds cheered and chanted. There’s no question that millions of Latinos will vote for Obama next month. But Mitt Romney, will face
challenges, and he’s not throwing his cards in just yet. His youngest son, Craig, spoke at the Republican National Convention, in Spanish. The candidate has even appeared in Spanish language television ads.

With less than a month until election day, a CNN poll says Obama leads Romney 70 to 26 percent amongst likely Latino voters and this election, there are more hispanics eligible to vote than ever, topping about 23-million
people. The question is, will they? Last election, less than 10 million Latinos actually voted.
