GOP CHIEF TO RUDY AND MITT: STOP THE DEATH SPIRAL

Rate this Entry

Rudy Guiliani and Mitt Romney are duking it out to see who can be more anti-immigrant in their appeal to the right wing base of the Republican Party. While that may get them closer to the nomination, the GOP's party chief is worried that this will cost the Party the general election as Hispanic voters and moderate voters who find the rhetoric distasteful and disturbing turn to the Democrats. Keep in mind that the newspaper carrying this report has the reputation of being the Lou Dobbs of the print media.

    There was also an article in the Politico about this today:

    What Martinez realizes is that the Republican Party probably won't win the Presidency next year regardless of their views on immigration, so what these candidates are doing isn't helping their party in the short term & is hurting them in the long term.

    It is no secret that latinos are the fastest growing group in the United States. Voter turnout shows that hey are also becoming increasingly politically active.

    States with high latino populations: Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, & Florida are the biggest swing states - and some of the fastest growing states - in the country. Losing the latino vote there means losing a generation of elections.

    "The Lou Dobbs of the print media" is pretty funny, except that Lou Dobbs is a Democrat and The Washington Times is hardly that. Nevertheless, point taken. The Wall Street Journal had a similar editorial.
