Face of America changes: More minority babies in U.S.

The face of America is changing. New Census data shows a shift in the ethnic make-up of the nation's population.

For the first time in U.S. history, more than half of the nation's babies were minorities.

Nearly 50.5 percent were either black, Asian-American, Hispanic, or another so-called minority group.

In 1990, that figure was only 37 percent.

This new population balance in the nation will likely play a huge role in politics.

Both President Obama and Mitt Romney are working hard to get the Latino vote this fall.
