    The Left likes to promote the myth that Latino Americans are all leftist and with increasing Latino population the Republicans are done! They like to say the Latino vote blue to the tone of 95% just like Blacks and Jews do! They try to point to Obama getting 60% of the Latino Population as proof of this. But these myths are FALSE.

    First, it's the racist DEMOCRATIC policies that lumps all Latinos into one group. Mexicans, Cuban, Puerto Ricans, Domicans, Argentinian, Chilians, Salvadorian etc are all VERY different. Ask any New Yorker, Puerto Ricans and Mexicans don't get along. A Puerto Rican in the American Southwest would fear the day of being in the new Mexican dominated nation of Aztlan. Heck see Puerto Rico's government right now they are DOMINATED by the conservative pro-becoming part of the Union Progressive Party (ironic the conservative party calls itself Progressive). The dangerous gang, MS-13, was formed by Salvadorians to combat the Mexican gangs. The Mexican Mafia doesn't include all Latinos, it include MEXICANS! Cuba American are very conservative! Lumping them together like the left has done is IGNORANT!

    Second, the "all Latinos vote the same" claim is ignorant. Just like white of different states, Latinos of different states vote similar ways. Latinos in CA vote different latinos in TX and FL.

    The 3/4 of the Latino population are in 8 states, with a 30% in one state (CA). Those states are CA, FL, IL, NJ, NY, TX, FL, AZ and NM (NM has a smaller number than other states but has the first Latino majority). CA, IL, NY & NJ are large blue states. The overall population in these states vote blue, so do the Latinos in these states. These states make up 42% of the Latino Population. That is why you see the overall Latinos population vote blue.

    HOWEVER, if you take the states with the 2nd (TX) and 3rd (FL) Latino population you see the Latinos vote not going blue. Rather in many cases overwelming RED!

    See this daily kos article (if it points conservative in Daily Kos then you know its true) on Texas Latinos! It's surprised me on these results. People ignorantly think that Texas will turn blue, because their Latino population is growing. The Elitest liberals in NY, NJ, CA or IL can't understand why the Latinos in Texas would vote red (I mean Latinos like a strong economy with job growth also, no?), nevertheless in Texas they do it regularly! Latino Americans have a lot of Texas pride!

    Now FLORIDA, where more than half of the Latino Population is composed of Cuban American and they overwelmingly vote Red. If it wasn't for the Jews of Florida (the other swing vote), FL would go Red every year. Damn liberal Jews.

    Third, the liberals want to point out 60% voted for Obama in 2008! Word to stupid it was a DEMOCRATIC year. Iraq War was unpopular with everyone, the stock market crashed, the economy was in recession and the economy in general took a nose-dive right before the election. Every segment went blue, so why shouldn't we expect Latino Americans to go blue? And in a very democratic year, McCain still got 40% of the Latino vote. 60% of the vote is a great win, but the libtards try to make it sound like 100%. Think of it this way, 4 out of every 10 Latinos voted red. If this was school, Obama would have gotten a D- with only 60%!

    Fourth, take the state with the ONLY Latino majority in America, New Mexico. It's a red state. True in 2008 it broke blue, but came back to Red in 2010 by voting in the First Latina American Governor (a Conservative Republican). The Latinos in this state usually vote Red! Arizona Latinos generally vote blue, but it more along the lines of 60-40! Not as big a victory as the libs want you to believe.

    There is some truth in what you say. However, you are missing a big point. While Hispanics do not vote as an outright block the way Blacks do, they still tend to vote more Democrat than Republican. If you follow the voting patterns, overall it is probably closer to 60/40. In some states it is much greater. But even in Texas, Hispanics vote more Democrat than Republican. The reason they haven't become a strong force is simply that a lot of them don't vote. In fact, a lot of them are not even registered. The threat to the Republican Party will come when they do become a cohesive voting block and the Democrats organize them by registering them and pushing them to vote.

    Are Texas' Hispanics ready to go Democrat?
    Voting bloc has grown, but it isn’t easy to categorize

    Texas Dems still waiting for Latino surge | Houston & Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    In Texas, according to the 2010 Census, the Hispanic population accounted for 65% of the state's growth in population, while Whites only accounted for around 4%. The Hispanic population is not sitting at 38% in Texas. Based on that growth rate, by 2020 Hispanics will be close to the majority in Texas. Add in Blacks, and Whites will no longer be the majority.

    While that does not necessarily translate into Texas turning Blue, there are many factors to be considered. The biggest one is whether or not the Hispanic vote can be organized by Democrats. With Texas' poverty rate increasing along with the huge increase in Hispanic population, the writing is pretty much on the wall, but it will require the Dems to register, organize, and get these people to the polls.

    For the Republicans to keep Texas red, they are going to need to do a fantastic job of organizing the Republican voting Hispanics. This is one thing that can keep Texas red, at least a bit longer, even if Hispanics become the majority. Voter turnout is usually higher among Republicans. As you can see by the numbers stated above, Hispanic voters only accounted for 12 to 14 percent of the Texas vote, while being 31% of the population as of the 2000 Census. If Dems organize this voting block, it will be game over.

    Latino Americans are socially conservative, because of their catholic roots, but I wouldn't go as far as saying they're as conservative as you can get!

    CA, NY, NJ and IL skew the results nationwide because those are blue states. However TX and FL (and NM) latinos vote differently. See the Daily Kos article, if they are admitting Texas Latinos are not the blue Latino of CA and NY, then you can trust that finding. In fact they are saying in areas of Texas DOMINATED by Latinos, they conservative leanings are huge!

    That is simply because most Latinos in Texas don't vote. Look at the numbers. As of 2000, Hispanics comprised 31% of the population, yet only 12 to 14% voted, and I would gather that the majority of the ones who did vote, may well have voted Republicans. We know that Republicans tend to have higher turnouts than the Dems. My point is that if the Dems every organize this voting block and get them to the polls, the majority of those who have not been voting are likely to vote Democrat. Now you can argue that won't happen, but I personally think that is a bit like spitting into the wind. And now, the Hispanic population in Texas is up to 38%. By 2020, they will be close to the majority. Republicans are going to need to keep 50% of them voting on their side or Texas will eventually go blue.

    In reality most AMERICANS don't vote. Last election was different election. First, Blacks were motivated by the first black President. Second, most people were motivated because of how the economy was imploding right before the election.

    The only truly reliable voting bloc is the elderly!

    Sure they are.

    Most Latin American countries are very conservative. Why look at Guatemala. They have a very conservative government. Women die in droves there.
