Obama widens lead among swing-state Latinos
Yahoo ^

Posted on 06/22/2012 2:13:55 PM PDT by Windy City Conservative

President Barack Obama has widened his considerable lead over Mitt Romney among registered Latino voters in five key swing states, according to a new poll of 2,000 voters by Latino Decisions and the pro-immigration reform advocacy group America's Voice.

Obama enjoys the biggest lead among Latino voters in Arizona, 74 percent of whom say they favor the president over Romney. On average, Obama is leading Romney 63 to 27 percent among Latinos in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Virginia. Analysts estimate that Romney would need at least 40 percent of the Latino vote overall to win the general election, although that estimate changes depending on turnout.

Romney better pander to the latinos even more next week. It's amazing what an empty suit the GOP nominated; he seems like a worse candidate today than he ever did. I hear nothing about him, unless he is pandering to the next liberal and whistling through the graveyard as Obama trashes the constitution.

Unfortunately the Romney sycophants keep covering they ear saying, "La la la" and restating the same talking points they've had for the last 12 months. "Economy, economy, economy, economy!!" Guess what idiots, this nation is much more than the economy. If everyone gets $1 million dollars tomorrow, we still got problems; the biggest one is the loss of freedom and an ever growing corrupt govt. day after day.

If Romney can’t win without the Mexicans, then he should lose.

Maybe, they like all the free guns?

Obama offers them a free AK-47 on every shoulder.

If Americans want to protect their 2nd amendment rights, they better start pointing out the extreme racism of murdering Mexicans with “Fast and Furious” weapons for gun grabbing fanatics. Fight fire with fire or get badly burned.

Two kinds of people don’t particularly care about dead Mexican government employees ~ American leftwingtards and other Mexicans, particularly those who are safe in the US.

The GOPe also didn’t want to talk about social issues. OK then; Obama and the gay marriage pro-abortion advocates are winning on that front too.

I somewhat agree with you, but I believe that the right to bear arms is a God-given right and not merely a license granted by a benevolent government. Thus, I believe Mexicans have a God-given right to bear arms and I see nothing wrong in helping them to secure and exercise that right by furnishing them arms.

It’s the lies that make all this so wrong.

I have faith in OBAMA being paranoid enough, and desperate enough, to seal his own fate.

“Latino Decisions and the pro-immigration reform advocacy group America’s Voice”

First, I call BS on the poll. It isn’t clear, but it seems to say “voters” meaning “registered voters” as opposed to “likely voters.” Second, it is absolutely irrelevant what % in AZ back Obama, or in NC, or in some other states. There are only four states where the Hispanic vote will be important: NM, NV, VA, and CO. Now, there is no doubt that every vote will count in those states, but I’m still highly suspicious about the poll and the organizations behind it.

according to a new poll of 2,000 voters by Latino Decisions and the pro-immigration reform advocacy group America's Voice.

Two Liberal pro-Mexican Invasion groups come out with a poll saying Hispanics in six Swing States support the Liberal Messiah. Why should anyone in his right mind think this poll is legitimate?

Just thinking of Wisconsin where the polling showed a win by 10% by the communists and unions, but they were off by 15% because the people lied to keep the thugs at bay. Don’t be surprised if all of these polls turn out to be big time wrong.

Interesting technique by Obama: Throw open the borders to as many illegals as necessary, regularize those who are already here, make sure they get registered to vote and kick back and pick the remaining flesh off the bones of the USA.

It’s amazing to see how many Freepers are sucked in by a poll that means nothing and is so far off the mark from reality.

First, unlike Black Americans, Hispanics are a very diversified people in the USA, the largest groups being Puerto Ricans, Mexicans and Cubans. Add to this millions of other Hispanics from, Latin, Central & South America who could care less about illegal Immigration. Add both the Puerto Ricans & Cubans, both who have very minor “illegals” and you center in on Mexicans, of which millions are already legal American citizenss...and have been so, for decades. So....this great Obama political move, ain’t so great after all.

In fact: It is POTUS Obama & Attorney General Eric Holder that have both American and Mexican blood dripping from their hands because of “Fast & Furious”. Two American border agents, one a Hispanic, and hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens, men, women and children have been slaughtered by guns supplied by Eric Holder, approved by Barack Hussein Obama and sold to drug dealers in Mexico. IMHO, any Latino voting for Obama is a traitor to his own kind!! End of story!!!

"Obama widens lead among swing-state Latinos"

Not if he keeps treating them like this.

This is a pure propaganda piece, which most likely means that the opposite is quite the truth. So, all, please chill out, calm down, and continue enjoying Hussein’s continuing fast-paced spiral down the toilet.

Pro-Obama Latino inhabitants of America paying homage to their headless brothers, sisters and children in Mexico because of ‘Fast & Furious’. Perhaps they should stop watching the Doyers (Dodgers) and tune in to Fox.

They didn't "furnish firearms to law abiding Mexicans", they sold guns to drug cartels in the hopes they could tell the American people that the USA was supplying guns(without revealing the governments part in it)to the cartels and force the legislature to pass more gun control laws. It didn't work because they got caught when Brian Terry and another agent were killed with some of the weapons, they also killed hundreds of Mexican nationals with the same illegal weapons our government sold to them.

Yeah too bad for Obama only 48% plan to vote and the biggest percentage (40%) of Hispanics live in Texas New York and Cal. so it makes no difference how they vote or even whether they vote at all. Massage to What's His name DON'T PANDER TO HISPANICS TALK CONSERVATISM AND PLENTY OF IT PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!! Leave the pandering to Dumbo.

I understand what you’re saying, but their plan would not have worked if the American people were reminded that it is good thing that Mexicans have guns. Mexicans, too, have a God-given right to bear arms.

We should make it easier and not harder for arms to be sold to the people of Mexico.

I know that facts never bother you but instead of putting out this cr*p why don't you see what Romney really said? It is not pandering and I think it will be effective.
