From the New York Times to Politico, How the Media Covered the Latino Vote

Fox News Latino pointed out the importance given to the Latino vote by politicians across party lines.

"It was also an election in which Latinos and their interests and concerns got more attention than ever - in the media, and by conservative and liberal politicians alike (though not always in a positive way)," wrote Elizabeth Llorente on Fox News Latino.

John Dickerson speculated that Romney's loss among Hispanics will lead to internal dialogue on the issue among Republicans in a Slate post that also appeared on CBS News.

"Romney's poor performance with Hispanics, in particular, is likely to start a wave of soul-searching in the party about how to reach out to the country's fastest growing minority group," he wrote.

The Daily Mail

The power of Latino voters in this election didn't go unnoticed by the international community either. Even the United Kingdom's Daily Mail ran an article that began, "A top Republican has admitted his party is 'too old, too white and too male' as a record number of Hispanic voters headed to the polls on Tuesday and helped President Obama secure a second term."

The Republican official, Al Cardenas, who is head of the American Conservative Union, said his party needs to do "a lot of work" to be competitive in the future.
