Abstract
Extant literature on Latinos' policy preferences suggests heightened acculturation is associated with more liberal moral policy preferences, while heightened religiosity is associated with more conservative moral policy preferences. This paper seeks to extend this literature by examining the influence of multiple dimensions of acculturation and religiosity on two contemporary moral policy issues: abortion and same-sex marriage. After controlling for high rates of non-response, we find that acculturation and religiosity work in opposite directions, but in more nuanced ways than previous research identified.
