    Because all Hispanics must vote Democrat?

    Remember 40% rejected that idea by voting for Bush. Unfortunately many were duped by Barry and friends (like any others), but they don’t blindly vote Dim like other “groups”.

    ^ What, exactly, was it about Romney that should have made Hispanics vote for him?

    I don’t remember the percentage difference in the popular vote being significant enough to warrant this cartoon. 50.9% voted for Obama and 47.1% for What’s His Name. That’s only a 3.8% difference. That means that a change of 1.91% of voter preferences would have reversed the election.

    @Gore Bane

    So tens of millions of latino voters all think like the tea party, huh?

    Nice stereotyping and good luck in the next election.

    Hispanically yours, Chillbilly

    Republicans can’t try to make it harder for minorities to vote by restricting voting hours and adding voter ID laws and then turn around and try to court them as voters. They need to pick a strategy.

    As a Democrat I’m concerned about our increasing inability to attract white voters. If current trends continue, soon we’ll be doing as badly with white voters as Republicans do with minorities. It’s not healthy for the country if our parties divide along racial and ethnic lines. But politicans don’t seem to worry much about what’s good for the country anymore.

    President Obama’s popularity is at a 3 year high.

    Congress, not so much.

    Yes cjr53:

    Meaning one can be very popular by doing nothing, lying and taking vacations at the public’s expense.
    Sadly that happens even happens at the local levels!

    From an article in Wikipedia:

    “Alcaraz was born in San Diego in 1964 and grew up on the U.S./Mexico border, giving him a dual outlook on life (not “Mexican” enough for his relatives, not “American” enough for some in the U.S.)"

    OK, the man is an American. Born in California. Now the social interactions in the US call for any first generational child to be “labeled” as “old country”-American. So now he must refer and think of himself as “Mexican American” thus separating himself from every other American not of Mexican ancestry.

    Not the intent of “becoming” an American.

    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
    Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door. – “The New Colossus” Emma Lazarus, 1883

    IMO Ms. Lazarus did NOT envision such a separation. (though I have no idea if the 2.8 million Irish immigrants of her era hyphenated their nationality).

    Certainly the original un-official motto of this country did not envision such division if one would use the translation literally:

    In 1976 Time magazine said this:

    e pluibus unum = Traditionally, the understood meaning of the phrase was that out of many states (or colonies) emerge a single nation. However, in recent years its meaning has come to suggest that out of many peoples, races, religions and ancestries has emerged a single people and nation—illustrating the concept of the melting pot."

    So what is it people. Is this country going to fragment into warring factions along the lines of “mother” country or ethnicity or are we going to quit all this PC crap and become one people one goal one future?

    Curiosity thing. Not criticism. Do you know if that poll was of Latino voters (citizens) or if the poll was of all Latinos in the country?

    Hmmm…. and yet the earth survived.

    Yes, and wiping out the dinosaurs cleared the way for more advanced critters to thrive. I think Lalo nailed this one.

    Really?? Many generations later, a bunch of them still call themselves “Irish-Americans”. Same goes for the Italian-Americans & others. If you think that these groups quickly assimilated, you really don’t know your history.

    Good question. I looked into the poll methodology & it doesn’t say anything about screening for citizenship. I know political polls are almost always screened for registered voters & often for “likely voters”. The general surveys may not be screened for citizenship.

    This doesn’t take away from the fact that support for the GOP is low among Hispanic voters. Breaking into the 30% range is the best case scenario for most Republicans, even Hispanic candidates. That makes it very hard to win elections.
