Latinos find their political voice, but slowly

"Latinos are on the rise" in Georgia, announced the news site Politico last month. It's a common refrain among politics-watchers, who sometimes suggest that demographic upheaval could help elect Democrats Michelle Nunn and Jason Carter, and, in Politico's words, "potentially reshape the national political landscape."

But beneath the headlines lies a more tempered truth: a Hispanic electorate much smaller than sheer population figures might suggest and constrained by cultural expectations that don't always include voting.
