The center's experts predict that 53 percent of eligible Hispanics will vote. That's less than the 66 percent turnout projected for white voters and 65 percent for African-Americans.
The report says Hispanics will cast 8 percent of votes in seven toss-up states and 2.8 percent in four states that lean slightly to one camp or the other. Georgia is a strong lean for Republican challenger Mitt Romney. President Barack Obama lost here by five percentage points in 2008.
Polls suggest that Obama leads Romney by a wide margin nationally among Hispanics, reversing GOP gains under President George W. Bush.
