The survey follows several studies in recent years that have debunked
the myth that the Latino electorate is more socially conservative on abortion
than others. One of the main research questions for this survey is whether Latino
voters in Texas hold different or similar values and perspectives as Latino
registered voters nationwide.
The following memo is based on a statewide survey of 601 registered voters in Texas, conducted June 17 – 19, 2013. These data are subject to a margin of error of +/- 4.0 percentage points at a 95 percent confidence level.

You might be asking yourself, what is Progress Texas Institute and how is it different from Progress Texas.
Progress Texas Insitute is our 501(c)(3) non-profit, which is an IRS tax status that allows donations to be deductible for federal income tax purposes. Work under this status has strict limits on lobbying and political activity. We do our issue education and civic engagement work under this status.
Progress Texas is our 501(c)(4) which is also a non-profit, but donations are NOT deductible for federal income tax purposes. Work under this status has more flexibility for lobbying and political activity.
We split our work between these two organizations depending on the nature of the project.
