From the UC Berkeley Webcast site:

Nationwide, 60 percent of Hispanics supported Democratic candidates in the 2006 election, an increase of more than 10 percent from 2004. Did the Republican strategy of focusing on illegal immigration result in a loss of Hispanic support? Or were there other reasons that explain the gains made by Democrats among Hispanics? Can Democrats count on the Hispanic vote in the upcoming elections?
