McCain Losing Big with Latinos

Results of a recent poll by the Pew Hispanic Center provide bad news for John McCain since Latinos could help determine several swing states…

John McCain is winning a paltry 23 percent of the Hispanic vote compared with 66 percent for Barack Obama, according to a large poll released Thursday by the Pew Hispanic Center.

While Obama’s lead among Hispanics is not drastically ahead of where Democratic nominee John Kerry stood in the summer of 2004, McCain trails President Bush’s standing at this point four years ago.

At that time, Pew found that Hispanics broke 62 percent for Kerry and 32 percent for Bush. Exit polls later found that Bush earned the support of about four in 10 Latino voters.

That difference — from Hispanics breaking 2-to-1 for Democrats to nearly 3-to-1 today — is enough to send shockwaves through GOP circles. Republicans had hoped that McCain’s politically risky support for immigration reform, which infuriated many conservatives, would offer a unique opportunity to bring Hispanic voters back to the party fold.

    That’s why is stupid to think that amnesty for 20 million illegals will help McCain OR the republican party. How dumb are you guys? I quit the republican party because of Jorge Arbusto (AKA George Bush) stand on illegal immigration and his idiotic guest worker program. That is why I’m so against Mr. McCain… He’s losing his own state I guarantee you because of this same issue. Every hispanic I talk to still thinks that Mr. Bush is against illegal immigration. Wake up, smell the coffee… Hispanics are democrats with very few exceptions and that is not going to change no matter how bad you want to spin it.

    John McCain is truly a friend to the Hispanics, because he shares our same values.

    We as Hispanics, being Christians, we understand how critical is to have someone that supports family values, specially the right of the unborn to live.

    Our faith plays a very important role in our lives, and Senator McCain and his Cindy, through his life have been an example of not just talk the talk but actually walk by walk by the immense charitable work they have done in Countries need like India.

    They found a little girl in India, and they adopted her and have given her a great opportunity in this Country.

    Family is extremely important for us, and Senator McCain has always been supportive of our Hispanic Families through his Military and Political Career.

    As a Hispanic, I don’t want people to give me handouts, I want a person that provides a government that will defend my liberties and will provide the necessary things to not obstruct my goals.

    I am tired of politicians with populism ideas, thinking that we are ignorants and that we are looking to vote for the person who is willing to give us more in social programs….. NO!!!! I DON’T WANT THAT. JUST GIVE ME A GOVERNMENT THAT DON’T STEAL MY TAXES, PROVIDE BASIC SERVICES AND ABOVE EVERYTHING PROVIDE A FRIENDLY BUSINESS ATMOSPHERE FOR OUR SMALL HISPANICS BUSINESSES.

    THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT SHARES THIS IDEAL WITH ME IS… JOHN MCCAIN!!!

    THANK YOUR SENATOR FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK FOR THIS GREAT COUNTRY!!!
