If the hispanic vote didn't swing the election, why should this be considered?
Besides, we've been down this road before. Fool me twice...
They sure think that they did. I didn’t see one Obama bumper sticker here in this town BEFORE the election. As soon as the Kenyan’s unions stole the election for him, all of the Hispanics went out and got Obama 2012 bumper stickers and put them on their old “Rent-A-Wrecks”. It’s an “In Your Face America!” thing.
Hey GOP!!! When you throw the Tea Party under the bus, you lose! It’s that frikin’ simple!!!
No they did not, neither did Blacks. What happened was self hating Whites souls their douls again for various freebies. Just like 2008.
True if you look at percentages but in raw numbers minority turnout in places like Fla, Co, and Ohio increased well beyond the margin of Obama’s victories. Had Obama’s minority vote in battleground states stayed the same as ‘08 Romney likely wins the EC.But Obama got his base to the polls in those states in much greater numbers than anticipated. The raw numbers, if projected 4,8,12 years down the road do not bode well for conservatives. Minorities seem willing to remain Dems and their numbers are increasing, The millenials semm comfortable with dem social positions and not worried about the economic side and their numbers while not increasing will gather greater importance as the older cohort of conservatives pass from the scene. Given the shrinking conservative base and the grudging acceptance of Romney by conservatives it’s difficult to see conservatives backing a more moderate candidate and yet winning a national election with a candidate who personifies current conservative ideas.
Good article that tries to debunk the Amnesty Liberal myth of “Illegal Alien Amnesty brings in Hispanic Voters”
Simple math debunks any “Hispanic Voter Myth” being floated out there....Hispanics still make up a small percentage of voters...and...go to the polls in the same low pct that blacks do
In fact, white voters still outnumber Hispanic voters 8 to 1. It is suicidal to adjust election strategy for a small pct of the vote
The overall premise of the article is likely correct. The deciding factor wasn`t the hispanic vote... it was the sharp national turn to the political left. Under no realistic notion can we consider America a center-right country ever again. The bridge too far has been crossed.
Until we eliminate (or at the minimum reduce) election fraud, the left will/can count more votes than what we get to steal the elections!
Enough with the Latino votes, the messiah kind of candidate, the super-duper messaging that reaches all the voters......
It is not who votes that matters, it is who counts the votes that matters!
the elephant in the room nobody is talking about is Obama got 39% of the white vote. If whites voted for Romney in the same percentage as blacks or hispanics voted for Obama...
I did not get the full story ,but if some FReeper from Houston did hear all of this - Please reply with more details. Thanks.
