Hispanic votes wouldn’t have given victory to Mitt Romney
Reporters and pundits are figuring out that even if Mitt Romney had sharply increased his Hispanic votes in Colorado, Ohio, Wisconsin and other swing states, he would have lost to President Obama. And Byron York quotes Charles Murray as saying that his sociological studies show that there are no reasons to believe Hispanics are "natural Republican" voters as some delusional Republicans and the Wall Street Journal claim. Question: How many non Hispanics voted for Obama in sympathy with Hispanics? Millions, I'd guess.
Also, how long will it take HIspanics to "forgive" Tom Tancredo Republicans? Blacks still are mad at President Hoover and grateful to FDR. Hispanics still are mad at former California Gov. Wilson about Prop. 187, which was very tough on illegal immigrants. Political memories can be very long.
