WILL LATINOS BREAK BIG FOR OBAMA?

Rate this Entry

The Dallas Morning News reports on the Hispanic vote in this year's election. Republicans are hoping Latinos will remember McCain's past support for immigration reform (before he flipped his position and opposed his own bill). But here's why McCain should be worried:

Many of the
children of immigrants have watched their parents struggle to improve
the economic health of their families and believe the anti-immigrant
movement has demonized their families unfairly.



That's the main reason state Rep. Rafael Anchía of Dallas says Latinos will end up voting for Democratic candidates.



"Latinos
under 30 are going to break big for Sen. [Barack] Obama this year, and
naturalized citizens are going to respond to Obama's personal story as
the son of immigrants," Mr. Anchía said.



"Most Latinos know how
John McCain abandoned us when it came to voting on his own
comprehensive immigration bill. I do believe the country, in general,
is ready to move in a new direction."

    The polls say that McCain leads among white females by 12 and among white males by 24. In 2004 those numbers translated into a six point lead for Bush in September. This year it is not doing the same. The difference could be the Hispanic voters who are supporting Obama by a big margin making the race a tie or a McCain lead of two to three points.

    I think a lot of the new registered voters and young voters are not considered in the polls, these numbers may be right or way out of whack. I guess we'll find out in November!!

    I think the poll numbers are right. When the white women gave George Bush a twelve point lead in the Newsweek poll back in September 2004, Bush had a eight point lead. However, with white women supporting McCain by a twelve point margin in the latest Newsweel poll over the weekend, the poll shows a tie..the difference, I believe the Hispanics are have swung sharply to Obama.
