ADVISORY for Thursday January 8th

How does the Hispanic population feel about the war in Iraq since the capture of Saddam Hussein? Is support for the war higher among U.S.-born than foreign-born Latinos? Is there more concern among Latinos for the economy or future terrorist attacks? How do Hispanics rate the job that George Bush is doing as President of the United States? And are they leaning toward a Democrat or a Republican candidate in the November 2004 presidential election? With less than two weeks before the Iowa Caucuses, the Pew Hispanic Center will release new poll results on Latino attitudes on these issues.
