LaSA presents UCLA’s Matt A. Barreto on the Latino vote
On Thursday, Feb. 18, from 9-9:50 a.m., the Latino Staff Association (LaSA) continues its popular Charlas de Café (Coffee Chat) series continues with professor Matt A. Barreto, Ph.D., of UCLA. He will discuss his work in voting and voting rights — particularly, his thoughts on the Latino vote in 2020, as well as a look ahead to future elections.
Professor Barreto’s research examines the political participation of racial and ethnic minorities in the U.S. He has taught various courses on racial and ethnic politics, the Voting Rights Act, elections, statistics and American politics. He has published nearly 50 peer-reviewed research articles, chapters and books that examine Latino public opinion, voting behavior and racial politics in America.
Professor Barreto is a cofounder of the research and polling firm LD Insights, LLC, and previously cofounded the research firm Latino Decisions. Time Magazine called his work the “gold-standard in Latino American polling.” Huffington Post described him as “the pollster that has his finger on the pulse of the Latino electorate.” In 2020, Professor Barreto was hired by the Joe Biden presidential campaign to direct polling and focus group research for Latino voters.
