It’s almost election day and voting demographics have changed dramatically since our last presidential election. The number of eligible Hispanic voters has jumped 17 percent since 2012 according to the Pew Research Center.
This hour, we talk about the Latino vote here in Connecticut and nationwide.
We check in with award winning journalist -- Maria Hinojosa, host of Latino USA, about voting trends and we hear from Connecticut residents about the issues that matter most to them this election season.
Later we hear about how the Arab world views a potential Donald Trump presidency.
How do you think our country's changing demographics will impact this election?
