Of course some Latino’s and Hispanics like the Liberals- there’s more hand outs for them! But that’s no different than a lot of other races too. FREE is good- not necessarily good FRO them…
But to be perfectly honest- I don’t get why! I have witnessed some of the hardest working people ever in those two race of people- which is exactly what the GOP stands for- more of a “don’t steal from others what you can do for yourself” attitude. You’d think they would sway to the right in most areas.

All this poll did was highlight the lack of economic education among blacks and latinos. These groups have been pandered to by democrats for decades and what exactly have they received in return?

You’d think that in heavily latino or black cities, where democrats have been in power for a LONG time, that there would be proof of the success of liberal policies, but that’s not the case.

I believe this is more of an indictment of the social problems in these communities, where education is not stressed, as it is with white and asian communities. I would prefer to have all people educated, especially in math, economics and the various political philosophies, but until it becomes part of the group’s culture and an expectation that kids “should go to college”, then this situation will not change.

Hispanics and Latinos that want to work are not going to vote for Obama,
Many Workers are returning to Mexico because the work culture is poor now in the United States, most do not trust Obama anymore, they know that the Obama Camp only wants their vote, and they know that the Black Panthers will only work for the Blacks and Muslims.

“most do not trust Obama anymore, they know that the Obama Camp only wants their vote, and they know that the Black Panthers will only work for the Blacks and Muslims. ”

You folks truly disgust me. For all this pathetic meandering about colored folks, these fools could use a bit more schooling, so you can at least tell your elbow from your arse.

How could anyone doubt that Obama is a favorite with this demographci? Promises of mass amensty, opposing states that are trying to protect their citizens from the results of mass illegal immigration and fraud, opposing states from reasonable proof of identification when voting, and opposing use of E-Verify to validate an applicants immigration status prior to being hired for a job. If fraud, chaos, deception and a disregard for citizens and our laws are your thing, Obama is your man too. We already know this. Nothing new.

Sad that so many of you don’t understand your own argument.

Yes, you’re probably right, Hispanics and Black are probably less well educated. But where you are wrong is that they understand that the only party interested in making education a priority is the Democratic party. The Republican party would prefer to have education be another private for profit market rather than one interested in educating for the sake of bettering society.

Hispanics do have a healthy culture of hard work. Hispanics see their work undervalued and, in many cases, their hard earned taxes going to corporate subsidies and tax breaks rather than improving the communities that they live in.

You’re blind if you think that the Republican party is the party that serves the hard working. Hispanics have a good understanding of working hard and saving for their future, but Republicans see their savings as an easy target for banks. Low-income families are constantly targeted for easy fee-backed profits.

Do everyone a favor and stop trying to tell them how to think.

Hard working Hispanics don’t like being used, trampled on and put into one category — this is exactly the way Obama feels about them. What has he done to help the Hispanic family? Romney has done more for Hispanics than Obama.

On 05/25/2012, Ron Paul Supporters across America should gather together to discuss the idea of Dr. Paul running on an independent platform and brainstorm a clever strategy on how to launch a parallel campaign in the event he is denied the opportunity of becoming the Republican presidential candidate. The end goal is witnessing Congressman Ron Paul announcing his presidential bid as an independent the same day America celebrates Constitution day: September 17th, 2012.

A very interesting video clip indeed.

Obama does not wear Sacred Undergarments. That is why he will never get my vote. He also does not believe that when he dies, he will get his own planet where he will have his own personal harem. Obama really misses the boat on this one.

Any Hispanic who would even think of rewarding the GOP after putting their families and themselves and even their infant children through three and a half years of nonstop hate speech needs to see a psychiatrist.

i was going to write about how most of the posters here don’t even understand the difference between Latinos and Hispanics, the cultural-ideological differences, but i am concerned that 90% of them haven’t gotten this far without consultant with a dictionary source…since they probably don’t own one.
