Texas may be next. According to Pew Research Center tabulations from the . Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, in 2012 there were 10 million Latinos and million non-Hispanic whites living in Texas, making up % and %, respectively, of the state’s million residents. By contrast, in 2000, Latinos made up % and white non-Hispanics made up % of the state’s million residents. These numbers indicate the Hispanic population is growing more quickly than the non-Hispanic white population—since 2000 Hispanics have made up % of the Lone Star state’s population growth.
– A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll reported that only 43% of those surveyed supported a “public option” for health care reform – an apparently dramatic swing from its previous poll, which found 76% support for the policy. Upon closer examination, though, it turned out pollsters in the first survey asked people if they wanted the “choice” of a public option. In the later poll, they omitted the key word “choice,” asking simply whether respondents favored a public option. When Survey USA a short time later used the original language, 77% of respondents said they favored the public option, confirming the finding in the first NBC/WSJ survey.
