Mitt Romney Crashes and Burns with Hispanic Voters

Wednesday, October 3, 2012


President Obama and Mexican Rock Band Mana on Stage in Las Vegas

Despite lacing his campaign speeches with the occasional Spanish word or phrase, it looks like Romney’s hopes of winning support among Hispanics is muerto.

According to the latest NBC News/WSJ/Telemundo poll, President Obama leads Mitt Romney among Hispanic voters by staggering 50 points, 70% to 20%.

“It appears that Romney’s comments that 47% of Americans are dependent on government took a toll on his standing with Hispanics. Romney’s favorability score has cratered with the group, with his negatives hitting an all-time high. Fifty-three percent now say they have a negative impression of Romney and just 23% say they have a positive one. That 30-point difference is 17 points worse than in August.”

The 2010 U.S. Census reports Hispanics represent 16.7% of America’s population and is the fastest growing minority group.

    Mitt Romney es racista y Hispanos no como a racistas. This is a giant hurdle for Romney and one he can’t overcome in 32 days. Let’s face it. Romney is the last Republican from our parent’s Republican party. If the GOP is going to survive, they need to become more inclusive. The choice is theirs.

  2. Tena says:

    Very true, Randy. Very true.

    I think Romney’s refusal to support the Dream Act was a wake-up call for many Hispanics. La Familia is a deeply held value among Hispanics and the idea of a 12 year old girl or 15 year boy snatched out of their parents arms and sent back to Mexico or Guatemala is antithetical. It certainly is to me and I’m Scottish. Romney can claim his family hails from Mexico but he doesn’t get it.

    Hey, He can win! This is good stuff!.

    So, Romney finally won something, he fires big bird and Jim Lehrer, and tosses away all his previous core beliefs.

    Well at least now he can say the poll numbers are his way, and his campaign will continue to adamantly defend the poll numbers.

    But then the 7.8 percent unemployment rate came out and Romney and his campaign say its not “Sunrise in America”. like 7.4 Percent Was ‘Morning Again in America.

    I was real surprise to see Romney say he was completely wrong about his 47 percent remarks, and it only took him three times.

    I am waiting for Ann Romney to take back her “Latino biased against the GOP” and “You People” comments, but its too late for her and her husband.

    The venom I saw GOP dish out during the immigration debate against those from Latin America and the sweet names they came up with like anchor baby(one of the least offensive), and they are surprise we remember. Not to mention the Voter ID in GOP controlled states have passd to reduce Obama votes (Gosh right before a tight presidential race they change the rules, please, we know whats going on).

    Its funny seeing Romney trying to run down our country and say that 7.8 percent unemployment rate is not real or a good thing.

    I guess we will find out in November who people believe.

    This is good stuff!, I love it.
