Poll: Latino voters overwhelmingly support Obama
The Hill ^ | March 5, 2012 | Jonathan Easley

Posted on 03/05/2012 12:21:29 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Latino voters overwhelmingly support President Obama over any of the potential GOP candidates, according to a Fox News Latino poll released on Monday.

In a head-to-head match-up against President Obama, none of the Republican candidates polled hire than 14 percent among Latinos.

Additionally, 73 percent said they approved of the job the president has been doing, well above Gallup’s national average of 45 percent. And 58 percent said they approved of the president’s handling of the economy, which is by far the most important issue in the 2012 election.

Obama also wins a plurality among Latinos that supported Sen. John McCain (R-Ari.) in 2008, with 40 percent saying they would not vote for a Republican candidate again in 2012.

The Republican candidates have sometimes taken positions during the primaries that have turned off Latino voters.

Both GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, are on record as being against the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants born in the U.S., and which 90 percent of Latino voters say they support.

And this pretty much says it all....illegal immigration is fine as long as it’s their ethnicity

The undoing of the country......some groups will not wake up until it’s too late

This poll in totally wacked.

Obama also wins a plurality among Latinos that supported Sen. John McCain (R-Ari.) in 2008, with 40 percent saying they would not vote for a Republican candidate again in 2012.

Impossible. This would mean Latinos vote 180 degrees opposite of the population at large. Unless, for some unforeseen reason employment numbers are great for hispanics and their wages are higher than before, this is simply impossible.

So how has all of that kowtowing to the pro-illegals crowd worked out for the GOP?

First thing about this is that it proves Latinos are not assimilating well.

I suggest the solution to their problem is to return to their own countries.

Mexican voters and drug money are the reasons for the failure to stop the Mexican influx. These corrupt Democrats will run the risk of a Mexican “reconquista” to obtain permanent office.

Well, whoda thunk?

Just like the Black vote; they vote for their own benefits (we give these foreigners/usurpers/criminals) food stamps, EBT's, EITC, free education, Drivers' Licenses, the right to openly complain about their "treatment", and why do you think the Holder Gang and Sebilius announced proudly that ICE would not allow enforcement and deportation? Hint: Illegals can't vote from Mexico, but they fight voter ID so they can continue to vote for even MORE handouts, right here!

This is a joke, and the taxpayers and those who are personally responsible people are being shit on at every turn.

A revolution is in order, and is coming sooner than they think.

"The undoing of the country......some groups will not wake up until it’s too late"

The Crusades was a perfect example of never willing to wake up. When Islam kept destroying entire towns and villages and killed or enslaved everyone. Then the Crusaders kept coming from western countries in order to help defend the Christians. The Barons of the areas in the East would fight amongst themselves and not against their real threat.

If they did unit they would most likely held their ground.

Real crusades is very good stuff:

Mexicans want free stuff and handouts from the goberment. Bush, McCain, Karl Rove, et al are full of crap when they say Mexicans have much in common with the GOP.

Their “family values” are gang values. Why do you think our prisons and jails are full of Mexicans? Their boys join gangs, and increasingly thier girls are joining gangs too. There was an 11 year old Mexican girl in Long Beach, CA who killed another 11 year old Mexican girl in a fight last week.

Latinos are overwhelmingly Democrat and liberal. Republicans need to concentrate on getting the socially conservative Latinos, and hope more will follow as they see the horrible world liberals are creating. Meanwhile, if most Latinos are determined to vote for the gay, black guy who doesn’t give a squat about them, their families or futures, there’s probably nothing we can do about it. Let them go their socialist way. They will have to live in a broken America with the rest of us.

I’m sure you’re correct.
California is a good example of a state that went well past the tipping point due to the influx of illegals.
I doubt you’ll ever see a non-Dem winning ANY state wide election in California again.

I heard a GOP strategist speak at a conference in October who said that if the 1980 Reagan-Carter race was re-run with today’s demographics that Reagan still wins but it is by a razor thin margin... That is a terrifying thought.

Regardless of whether one agrees with the current policy, why would anchor babies need a path to citizenship?

Latinos are overwhelmingly Socialists. Why? This is the real question.

The great majority of them work pay taxes like the rest of us. Socialism is the biggest scam in human history.

This scam may seem obvious to most of us on this site but not for most people and those most hit by the scam it seems to be passing right over their head. Why?

Of Hispanics that are Protestant, Republicans got 56% of their vote in 2004, and 48% of their vote in 2008.

Polls are rigged don’t believe this garbage. I work with many Latinos and I’m telling you they are not down with this man in the WH. I have extensive conversations with my Latino friends and I’m told he is NOT popular in that culture. They will not vote for him again. They may not vote for the Republican candidate and stay home but they will not vote for him even though they are use to voting Dem.

“Latinos are overwhelmingly Socialists. Why? This is the real question.

No, unfortunately they don’t. They file, even without a SS# and get a Earned Income rebate. They also use social services at a greater rate than the rest of the population.

More:

http://www.npc.umich.edu/publications/policy_briefs/brief8/

In 1980, 13.8 percent of male workers who dropped out of high school were Hispanic. By 2000, Hispanics accounted for 44.2 percent of male workers who were high school dropouts


Hispanics make up 15 percent of the 42.5 million individuals or households that paid no income taxes in 2004. In contrast, they made up roughly 10 percent of all 131 million taxable American households....

and roughly 52 percent of Hispanics pay no income taxes.

Illegal Workers Used Tax Credit to Pocket $4.2 Billion, Audit Shows
Fox News ^ | Sept. 2, 2011

Undocumented workers collected $4.2 billion in a tax credit last year, up from less than $1 billion five years ago. The Additional Child Tax Credit is a refundable tax credit meant for working families but as a result of a vague U.S. law as well as an expansion of the tax credit in stimulus [read Obama] legislation the number of illegal workers receiving the money has skyrocketed.[snip]
