In an interview with Joy Diaz at KUT, political scientist Sylvia Manzano explains that “Hispanics don’t see eye-to-eye on everything, but there are issues that do get them out to the polls in large numbers…they might say, ‘I identify as a Republican or Democrat or Independent.’ But when it actually comes to those issues that trigger ethnic identity, we see a lot of policy agreement.”
Manzano is currently a Principal at Latino Decisions, a Latino polling firm, where she previously worked as a senior analyst.
Prior to Latino Decisions, Manzano served as assistant professor of political science at Texas A&M University where she taught courses such as “Race, Ethnicity and American Politics” and “Latino Politics in the United States.”
