An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Romney is trailing the President 69% to 22%. That's not as bad as the 70 to 14% spread seen in last month's Fox News poll, but it's still horrendous and pretty much will kill Romney's chances in November unless there are massive changes in the more general polls.
Despite Romney's efforts to distance himself from the anti-immigration rhetoric of the primaries, he'll have a tough time. The Supreme Court hearing of Arizona v. United States today, the decision sometime in the next few months, Democrats holding hearings and dragging people like Russell Pearce to the Hill, the refusal of Kris Kobach to quietly disappear, and a lot of Romney statements on camera will give the President plenty of opportunties to remind Hispanic voters of Romney's extraordinarily stupid decision to try and run to the right of his opponents on the immigration issue. Unfortunately, he can't get the 35+ million Hispanic US citizens to self-deport.
