Arizona voters are lining-up at the polls. The Pew Research Center tells us that there are 992, 000 eligible Latino voters in Arizona, that’s 21.5 percent of the electorate. It’s also 21.5 percent of a battleground state where Real Clear Politics has Donald Trump with a 1.5 lead. For a little perspective, Romney won that state in 2012 by 9.1 points and McCain won in 2008 with an 8.5 lead.
