Skip to comments.Hispanic voters love Obama, but Marco Rubio could end the romance
Posted on 03/05/2012 1:57:26 PM PST by ConservativeStatement
Hispanic voters in Florida and across the country give exceedingly high marks to President Barack Obama and overwhelmingly favor his re-election.
The findings come from a Fox News Latino/Latin Insights poll released Monday. The poll also showed that in Florida and elsewhere Hispanic support for Obama dips if the eventual Republican nominee picks U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio for vice president.

I subscribe to the thinking that Marco Rubio could and will be a valuable player when it comes to persuading Hispanics to leave the dark side, but the dark side is powerful, and it has its hooks into a vast majority of Hispanic voters. The Republican Party, the Tea Party and conservatives in general, will have help Rubio all they can.
What about Gov Susanna Martez (R-NM)?
“Many people do not vote, based on issues.
Instead, they vote on appearance, race and gender.”
You’re correct, of course, but I’d also add religion to that list. Santorum is getting a lot of support for that reason, notwithstanding his weak policies and record.
Unfortunately, if it's Romney-the-RINO/Rubio, we know he would be the "token-Hispanic VP" (that's how Soros got The Messiah/token Black).
I would NOT vote for any presidential ticket that included Marco Rubio or any other ineligible candidate.
Gov. Martinez would be a fool to follow Palin’s path to destruction: a first term GOP woman governor dragged on to a presidential ticket. She should wait for her second term and 2016 and run in her own right.
Really? WHEN was he naturalized?
Very simple - because he has brown skin - for 95% of blacks, and most hispanics, that is all that matters.
He can do no wrong to these fools.
Rubio’s parents were not naturalized citizens until a few years after his birth in Miami. Even if he were eligible, he is soft on illegal immigration.
Rubio is a Romney guy, and a participant in the “Bloody Thursday” week of attacks against Gingrich.
Actually, it's more a hankering for free stuff, quotas in academic admissions and hiring and other minority preferences. This is why when the GOP runs blacks against white Democrats, it consistently loses the black vote 9 to 1. Black and Hispanic voters are pretty rational - it's white and Asian voters who consistently vote for handouts and preferences at their own expense.
You still haven’t answered my question. If Rubio is not a Natural Born Citizen then that means he must have been Naturalized. So WHEN was Rubio Naturalized?
In my opinion, he is. Neither of his parents owed allegiance to a foreign entity at the time of his birth. They had fled Castro's Cuba and were preparing to become American citizens.
According to the common law at the time of the Constitution's signing, that fit the definition of "natural born."
Correct. One is either a Naturalized or Natural Born Citizen. Since you are claiming that Rubio is not Natural Born Citizen that must mean he is NATURALIZED. So my question to you is WHEN was Marco Rubio NATURALIZED?
I can't remember the politician who asked "What more do they want? Moving sidewalks?" But it is true.
The exceptions, of course, are Americans of Hispanic descent who earned their way here and, of course, object to cheap and easy citizenship for those wanting to bring with them that which they ran away from. But they, unfortunately, represent the minority of Hispanics now.
Because they come from nations dominated by Spanish political thought, which is very Leftist in nature. In Mexico for example...the two parties are in all essence democrat vs socialist.
Romney will choose the moderate hispanic governor out of New Mexico if he wins the nomination.
It wasn't necessary for the court to decide on that basis so it didn't. It took the path of least resistance to make the clearest precedent.
It is, however, important they recognized the argument.
You go ahead and challenge Rubio or Jindal or how about Santorum or maybe you think Romney isn't a natural born citizen either.
The trouble with Birthers is you have no uniform agreement on a version of NBC: two citizen parents, two citizen parents themselves not naturalized, two citizen parents and born in country, etc...
Why then use just the word citizens if they were referring to natural born Citizens?
Whether persons born in the US to non-citizen parents were citizens was not a question before the Minor Court because Mrs. Minor was natural-born, whereas Wong Kim Ark was not. The determination of his citizenship required the 14th Amendment, whereas Mrs. Minors did not.
