I showed recently that some of the reason that Asians tend to vote Democrat is that they are, on average, younger than whites. Let's now see if this is true of Hispanics. Using GSS data, here are the percentage who voted for Romney in 2012:
Percent Voting for Romney
Ages 18-44 15.5
Ages 45+ 24.1
Ages 18-44 47.8
Ages 45+ 49.1
You can see than young Hispanics are very liberal. Older Hispanics are liberal, too, just a little less so. The mean age of whites in 2012 was 49.4. It was only 40.9 for Hispanics, so they are a much younger group. Conclusion: Part of the reason why Hispanics are so much more liberal than whites is because they are younger, but even if their average age was that of whites, they would still be a liberal group.
