POLL: IMMIGRATION CRUCIAL ISSUE TO MOST HISPANIC VOTERS

Rate this Entry
Those who follow immigration politics closely know that the finding in a new America's Voice Bendixen poll of 1,100 Hispanic voters that more than 3/4 consider immigration to be a major issue for them is true. But for many anti-immigrant members of Congress, there's a case of wishful thinking going on - that Hispanic voters only consider immigration a minor issue and will vote on other issues instead. Or an even less realistic assumption that Latino voters actually feel the same way as them and want to see immigration reform fail. That thinking failed miserably in 2006 and 2008 as Hispanics defected en masse from the GOP to the Democrats. The only way this trend is likely to be reversed is if the Democrats fumble and somehow make it appear that they are no better on immigration issues.

    What have the Democrats done for immigrants? Nothing. I am not voting for people who ignore me and I expect there are many who will feel the same way and stay home this fall.

    "The only way this trend is likely to be reversed is if the Democrats fumble and somehow make it appear that they are no better on immigration issues." The dems are doing just that!!! But hispanics won't go to the republicans... those 10 million votes that the president got from hispanic may just stay home next time, It will be hard to win with a vote deficit that big...
