Poll: NM Hispanic Voters "Lean Green"

April 24, 2008

Albuquerque, NM - Hispanic voters in New Mexico and across the country tend to "lean green," according to a new, first-of-its-kind poll. The Sierra Club study found that more than 80 percent of Hispanic voters nationwide consider global warming to be a major problem, and a solid majority say they're willing to take action to help improve the environment.

Oliver Bernstein with the Sierra Club says the poll shows Hispanic voters in New Mexico enjoy the outdoors and are concerned with protecting open spaces in the Land of Enchantment.

"It appears that the environment, energy and global warming are very much on the minds of Hispanics in New Mexico today."

Bernstein says the survey found Hispanics are sometimes more concerned than other groups about environmental problems. The bilingual poll surveyed a thousand Hispanic voters nationwide, including many in New Mexico and other Southwestern states.

Bernstein says the poll also found that more than 90 percent of Hispanic voters nationwide feel a faith-based obligation to care for the Earth.

"This obligation includes forests, oceans, lakes and rivers. We see a very, very strong connection through faith and culture to environmental protection."

Survey results are at www.sierraclub.org.
