This paper examines the key drivers of party identification among Latinos leading up to the 2004 U.S. presidential election. Political analysts generally agree that since the New Deal Era, Latinos have generally favored the Democratic Party. However, in studying Latino partisanship, no single social or economic characteristic can predict partisan choice. Instead, an analysis of socio-economic characteristics, as well as Latinos' stances on political issues, is needed to better understand Latino partisanship. This paper uses predictive choice models to examine data collected by the Pew Hispanic Center in 2004. In addition to studying Latinos overall, this paper also examines subsets of the U.S. Latino population, including registered voters, likely voters, and non-citizens. The findings reveal that opinions of the war in Iraq and healthcare issues were the most important determinants of partisanship among registered and likely Latino voters. Among non-citizens, immigration and abortion surface as the strongest determinants of partisan choice
