Sorry Linda, Hispanics come to the USA and vote Democrat for the same reason blacks and single women vote Democrat... free stuff. Don't have to work for it. Obama phones all around!! Romney and the GOP mistakenly believed that blacks and hispanics/latinos actually want to work. That's why the campaign was focused on jobs. BIG mistake. About 10% of each group want to actually achieve success in the true American way (I'm in the 10% myself)
There may be no single, simple explanation why Mitt Romney lost the election this week -- but clearly the perception that the GOP is anti-Hispanic didn't help. For years, I've been warning my fellow conservatives that their position on immigration would be costly, not just politically but for the economy as well.

The election results definitively proved the former. The Hispanic vote was decisive in denying Romney a win in Colorado, Nevada, Florida and possibly Virginia. Without winning more Hispanic votes, the Republican Party may be doomed to permanent minority status.

Hispanics are the fastest growing population in the country....
