LOS ANGELES -- The supposed apathy of Latino voters toward the Nov. 2 elections reflected in last week's Pew poll made national news, but yesterday a political scientist at the University of Washington noted that this survey does not reflect the views of the past few weeks. The intention to vote in this community seems to have risen significantly, reaching 74 percent of those registered, according to a poll by Latino Decisions. Latino Decisions pollster Matt Barreto told La Opinión the 51-percent figure given by Pew does not reflect the real intention of the Latino vote.
