Exclusive poll: Obama's support among Hispanic voters eroding
Bay News 9 (FL) ^ | October 13, 2012 | By Holly Gregory

ST. PETERSBURG -- There are two million Hispanic voters in Florida. It's a constituency that has the power to shift a tight election, so both political parties have tried to sway the Hispanic vote their way.

An exclusive Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9 statewide poll shows many Hispanic voters dropping their support for Obama.

Last month, 52 percent of Hispanic voters polled said they would vote for the president. That has now dropped to 44 percent.

Romney picked up some ground among Hispanics, from 43 percent to 46 percent. And the number of undecided Hispanic voters has doubled from 5 to 10 percent.

The media and Obama don’t seem to understand that ALL GROUPS who’ve been hurt by the lousy economy are trending away from Obama, relative to 2008.

What about the midget vote?

I think he still has the left-handed, transgendered, lesbian, hispanic, muslim vote locked up. But there's a few weeks left.

I went with a Jewish NY city girl before I was married and we still talked after we broke up, even ater I was married and she was.

Last election we were talking and it got onto politics to wich I told her I’d vote for mccain.
WOW she went into overdrive and sent me links to the huff post etc.
I gave her links from Israeli sites , papers and about obama being anti Jewish etc and how he was a radical.

She then went even more mad of which surprised me as she was not into politics until she maried her radical liberal Jewish guy.

I told her that the huff post was biased to which she told me I was a NAZI, evil, stupid etc.

Now I had dated this girl for nearly two years got into fist fights defending her against radical lefty loons who hated Israel up north .

She told me I was stil a NAZI and obama would be a better friend to Israel.

Since that day have never bothered with her even though she sends me cards and notes here and there.

You’re right the left are not tolerant, they are not civil and liberalism is seriously a mental disease.

i’d love to send her a note saying how is that hope and change going and how is obama better for Israel now but then again I also don’t want to talk to her after that outburst of hers.

if true then it means Holder, the DOJ and obama and his regime will have to increase their voter fraud and vote more often to off set this.

Here, the lead has been taken... but only Obama’s decline seems to matter to the headline writer.

It's the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times), a newspaper so unapologetically liberal that it even mentions this about its founder on its Times History page:

Over the four decades Nelson Poynter (shown below) ran the Times, Poynter transformed his father’s small, financially wobbly paper into a large, robust enterprise. He became one of American journalism’s most conspicuous figures – a liberal in a conservative community, an innovator in a sometimes stand-pat industry, a loner in a field increasingly dominated by chains.

FL is *very much* an anomaly because of the Cubans. Anyone who extrapolates from this poll to thinking that Romney will do well in Mexican-Hispanic states need to curb their enthusiasm down a couple hundred notches.

But he wasn’t going to win California anyway and if the Cubsna put Mitt over the top in Florida, that’s good enough.

The Hispanic ‘community’ in Florida is part Mexican and Puerto Rican, who vote DOP, and part Cuban, who vote GOP. Were the Cubans inclining towards Obama and got turned off and now wish to vote their customary way, or have the Mexicans gotten turned off and now want to vote Republican?

At any rate, another significant number of Hispanics are not officially in Florida, but are paid to vote Democratic, only they do so under the names like Shloime Berkowitz, Ruth Goldstein, and Buggs Bunny, who are variously deceased, disabled, or fictional. Obama’s support still remains unanimous in this demographic.

What I think is funny, is that the “very important immigration rights vote” Obama has been pandering to, is now dumping his ass.

Heh, heh, heh...

So Hispanic’s number one issue isn’t legalizing illegal immigrants. Who knew? LMAO I’ve only been saying this for twenty years.

It would be nice if folks would pay attention and gain some knowledge here. I don’t count on it.

Romney can and WILL put Obama’s candidacy and Presidency away on Tuesday night. The only ‘trick’ left in Obama’s dirty bag is to pull a ‘Biden’ on Tuesday night, and that is not his candidate ‘persona’, it may be his ‘fundraiser’ persona, but it’s not (and hasn’t been) his 2008 persona. He is going DOWN! Period!

I kind of doubt that most women who weren't already into politics would not end up adopting the politics of their husbands. When you criticize her politics, she's not hearing you criticize her politics, she's hearing you criticize her husband.

They recruit heavily in Mexico and Brasil. One of my friends from Sao Paulo was a recently converted Mormon. She said there's a huge effort by missionaries there.

It’s a fantasy to think that most Hispanics are going to vote Republican. Cuban-Americans are the only group that trend Republican, and Cuban-Americans are only statistically significant in Florida.
Most Hispanics want big government, because they are the benificiaries of it. They are not as conservative as they are made out to be, and they are more apt to support gun control and even gay marriage. Mexican-Americans especially are not oriented toward voting based on social issues. Furthermore, Hispanic women have a higher abortion rate then white women.
Sure, you’ll have a few Hispanics vote Republicans, but they form a minority of a minority.
For reliable analysis of the Hispanic question, don’t listen to the wishful thinkers in the GOP, but check out the vdare.com website. It has reliable, documented information.

It would be more interesting to see the breakdown by ethnicity since Florida goes it's own way.

Cuban vote usually goes R. I don't think Eric Holder (Reno clone) helps Obama any either.
Puerto Rican vote leans dem, but by what seems to be a lower margin in Florida than in the Northeast.
Then there's the Columbians, Venezulans, Mexicans, Dominicans, and others as well.

Yeah, it's even better if you can leave the past ex-girlfriends out of your married life. I know it is not my place to tell you this, but the internet made me do it.

The TexMexicanos are actually getting it.

Obama and Holder perpetrated an Act of War on Mexico which resulted in the deaths of thousands of Mexican citizens.

know they are getting played, and Obama will pay for it.

Obama has a penchant for destabilizing border areas.He has his work in Kenya in 2006/2007 with Odinga , Pakistan and in Libya to prove it. Its a trend. Obama is a drone.

Cuban-Americans in FL have been in the R camp for decades now. The shift can’t be attributed to that group.

That’s because the Cubans don’t think like the mexican hispanics of Cali where I live. Here if it’s libre’, they vote Dumocrat but in FL, their families have voted Pubbie’ for generations. My cousin works in Dade Co (unfortunately) and has had Cuban GF’s and their families are GOP.

“With Biden’s performance on Thursday they lost the women’s vote as well.”

They are counting on the Big Bird vote. Unfortunately, 2 year olds aren’t allowed to vote even under the DREAM act.

Here in the PNW most of the hispanics (legal or not) are voting with the Democrats. Can’t risk losing all their benifits don’t ya know. Freedom be damned! (Sarcasm intentional)
