Hispanics now make up nearly 17 percent of the U.S. population—and that number continues to grow. Matt Barreto, professor of political science at the University of Washington, is the co-founder of Latino Decisions, a premier polling and research firm that looks at the political opinions of this increasingly influential group and which Time Magazine called the “gold-standard in Latino American polling.”

Barreto’s expertise lies in Latino public opinion, voting behavior and race politics in the U.S., including voter ID laws. Along with Latino Decisions co-founder Gary Segura, he was a principal investigator of the American National Election Study Latino oversample, the first ever oversample of Latino voters.

Barreto has been featured in the New York Times and as a guest on PRI’s TheWorld,Marketplace and the PBS special “Race 2012.” The Huffington Post named him one of the leading Latino pundits, saying “the pollster has his finger on the pulse of the Latino electorate.”
