Below is an excerpt from an article by staff writer Alice Walton published on March 7, 2013, which covers the findings of an exit poll by the Center for the Study of Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University. The findings cover a strong turnout for Emanuel Pleitez by Latino and young voters, as well as Catholic, Agnostic, Democrat, Decline-to-State, and Foreign-Born voters.
