In 2012, there were 538,000 Hispanics registered as independents, 476,000 registered as Republicans, and 645,000 registered as Democrats. Many experts think the Florida governor election in 2014 will be decided by the Hispanic vote.
There are 1.6 million African Americans registered as Democrats in the state of Florida, and Scott is aware that 90% of the Black vote will vote Democrat in the election in 2014. As a result of the number of Hispanics registered as independents, Scott will not focus on the Black vote.
