About 12 million Latinos are expected to head to the polls and it is safe to say that no one can make it to the White House without Hispanic support.  Hispanics are the country's fastest growing population, now making up more than one of every six Americans.

According to ABC News, historically Latinos tend to vote more for democrats than republicans and that is not expected to change this time around.  But if Mitt Romney can muster up more than a third of the Latino vote, it will be an even closer election than already predicted.

The amount of Latinos eligible to vote is this election is up 22% since 2008. The biggest issues facing the demographic is jobs, education and of course, immigration.
