The good folks at Latinos in Social Media have invited me to host a pre-debate tweet up this evening to discuss the vice presidential debate that will occur tonight in Danville, Kentucky. The stakes are high tonight as polls between President Obama and Mitt Romney have become closer since the first presidential debate, and a new Pew poll shows that Vice President Biden’s unfavorability rating is actually higher than Paul Ryan’s.
Tonight’s tweet up begins at 8:30 pm Eastern (5:30 pm Pacific) and will use the #latism hashtag. I will be participating tonight from @LatinoPolitics, and we’ll discuss some of the issues that you think need to be brought up in this debate. We’ll also be discussing the many upcoming voter registration deadlines and issues related to turning out the Latino vote.
For those who want to do a little bit of pre-debate homework, check out these articles for context:
Afterards, we will of course continue the #LATISM party with commentary and tweets during the debate.
