The Center for Immigration Studies projects that the Hispanic share of the nation's electorate will increase by 1.5 percentage points, from 7.4% in 2008 to 8.9% in the 2012 election

The CIS also found that Hispanics will be a somewhat smaller share of voters in battleground states than of the overall electorate. In 2012, non-Hispanic whites are expected to be 73.4% of the national vote and non-Hispanic blacks are expected to be 12.2%. To place the Hispanic share of the electorate into perspective, eight percentage points of the Hispanic vote nationally equals slightly less than one percentage point of the non-Hispanic white vote.
