    Obama's big Hispanic win worries GOP | Political Headlines | Comcast

    Hispanics have long favored Democrats. But they have been trending even more sharply toward that party since Republicans stymied Bush's immigration proposal and favored hard-line immigration measures that critics decried as racially motivated.

    Camarota and other supporters of immigration restrictions contend that Hispanics lean Democratic because they favor government social programs and higher taxes on the wealthy


    So basically Obama says I will give you free shit and open the gates for cousin gomez if you vote for me, Obama the scum needs to be impeached ............

    He won by demographics, not just one though. Women got out in force, there were mostly women where I voted on Tuesday and a historic number of women were elected to the US Senate.

    Those are just two who had a lot to do with his reelection. Don't try to minimize his victory, it just makes you look stupid.

    The young people turned out to vote, also, and favored the President by a large number.

    The demographics of the future look very bleek for the GOP unless they quit narrowing their base. You cannot alienate women, minorities, and the young, and expect to have a future as a winning party. Not only that, the GOP has been doing it's best to alienate all those in the academic and scientific community. A very small demographic, but an influential one.

    ummm..... the hispanics are catholics :eusa_pray: to a T. The Repubs just scared them off w/ all their zany candidates & extremist rhetoric. Not spelling-out specifics of Mitt's plans didn't help either :uhoh3:

    BTW- correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't O deported more illegals than his predecessor?

    You can't alienate those who want more free stuff and expect to be a winning party.

    This election was no different than 2008. The country is divided nearly 50 50 and with him at the helm that's the way it will remain. Now everyone just needs to get ready to pay the piper. Welcome 20 trillion dollars of debt. That's quite a legacy. You electric bill will necessarily spike by 70%. I don't have a clue how high your groceries and insurance will go. I'm so happy for ya.

    Cowing? That takes the fucking cake.

    Obama won because he treated hispanics like people.

    Romney was a fucking shithead that said to the American people, "Yes, I was employing "illegals" but since it looked bad as I was running for President, and as I am such a shithead I didn't think to make them legal, I fired them all..because heck, I don't really consider hispanics people anyway..and they can self deport".

    And we hispanics (My pop was hispanic), took a little offense. Oh and by the way..do keep it up.

    That's what I've been saying for four years, the takers have now outnumbered the makers. It will be fun to watch them scrambling for the spoils. so to speak.
