VIVA...KERRY?....We're already hearing that turnout in Hispanic precincts is far higher than in 2000. I don't know if that's because there are simply more Hispanics in the U.S. than there were four years ago or if it's a result of focused voter registration efforts in Hispanic communities or if it is a reflection of the more general way that intimidation tactics seem to have driven up turnout among minorities.

But what we're learning now is that the Hispanic precincts in Florida at least are breaking in very different ways than they did in 2000. Check out these numbers:

Hispanic FL vote in 2000: 35% for Gore, 65% for Bush
Hispanic FL vote in 2004: 46% for Kerry, 53% for Bush
