There is little chance that the Romney-Ryan ticket can get more than 30% of Hispanic or 10% of black votes. Their only hope for a win is to convince white voters that they will become politically and physically threatened if Obama is elected. Nothing is as important as personal safety; the largest fear of white voters is home invasion and street crime. The issues of more taxes, cuts in Medicaid or Medicare are secondary.

Right now, the greatest fear of all voters (regardless of race) is unemployment. The unemployment rate under Obama refuses to budge; it's at 8.3%.

Speaking as an hispanic male, Air Force Vet (Desert Storm) , husband and father, Romney/Ryan has my full support and that of my family.

If Romney/Ryan can pull 5% of the black vote away from Obummer, Romney wins VA, NC, and Ohio and thus the election. Obummer has to keep his base at previous levels, if he expects to win, and as of now he has not, thus playing the race card is his only option, because he can't run on his record in the black community.

Hispanics typically are Catholic. Obama has offended Catholics, and Romney now has a Catholic running mate. You may wish to re-think.

I don't know about the Hispanic vote, morris6. Their family values are like any other here in America. I'm believing more than 30%. Also family wise, the black vote of 10% under these circumstances is an improvement over 2008. Just my thought it, but you may be right.

it may only be 10 possible 15% of the black vote, but it will be of a much smaller pool and that hurts obama big time

I disagree with the 30 percent of Hispanics....I think they will get closer to 40 percent...when Rubio, Martinez and other Hispanic Leaders hit the trail for Mitt and start seeing Obama exposed more and more...I disagree...Hispanics are more open then you think. I know I live in a large area with big Hispanic population and quite a few of my employees are Hispanic and some voted for Obama in 2008 but in this election they are not convinced they will again. Mitt has a better opportunity then you realize despite what Obama did with illegals. Now the blacks unfortunately I agree and look at their economic plight??? How ignorant can they be and they will never learn!

Fresh off of Vice President Joe Biden's "they'll put ya'll back in chains" comments yesterday in Danville, Virginia, Mitt Romney hit back at the Obama campaign, hard, telling President Obama to take his campaign of division, hate and anger back to Chicago.

"He is intellectually exhausted, out of ideas and out of energy."

"The President is taking things to a new low. His campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency."

"This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like. President Obama knows better, promised...
