.SOY! Both Latinos and vegans feel a strong claim to the word. But does this new offering work?
Dear Google, we say “punto com,” not “punto soy.” Thank you.

"Between 1980 and 1994, every year the Latino population in California was getting more Republican," says [professor of political science at Stanford University Gary] Segura. He says that as they achieved economic mobility and entered the middle-class, Latinos tended to vote for the GOP.
However in 1994 Prop 187 hit the scene, which would have blocked off social services from those who entered the country illegally.
In response to the overwhelming anti-immigrant and sometimes-racist sentiment by the measure’s supporters, Latinos of different nationalities and age-groups banded together and overwhelming became democratic.
"Second, there was a huge boom in Latino voter registration that fundamentally changed politics in the state," says Segura, "so the Republicans really shot themselves in the foot on this issue. The Republicans could be doing better than they are now.""
