    Dunce. I do understand though why people like you want more people in this country that will demand the Democratic party as their patron.

    I don't have a link. It's common sense. The very poorest people vote Democrat in very large numbers. That's indisputable. Their education levels are very low.

    Maybe if the republicans stopped intentionally and unintentionally ticking off potential Hispanic voters, they would win more elections at the presidential level.

    Sorry if it bothers you but the fact is,today's republican party is using the same disenfranchisement tactics that they started in 1877.

    Its just an updated, refined version,that the chairman of the rnc, priebus, is pushing in 21st century America.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    That's fine...almost nothing of consequence has passed with those 70 members anyway. They show up to "repeal" the Affordable Care Act for the 50th time but beyond that are useless.

    It's like the Doomsdayers that keep predicting the End of the World and continuously get proven wrong.

    Look, I agree that there are many bad decisions, but when you guys keep going into "Doom and Gloom" mode it just gets old and sounds more like whining.
    obamacare hasn't been implemented yet and we are only 6 months into his second term......two examples that have yet to be disproven, however seeing how the ACA is being predicted to ba a "train wreck" and the way scandals keep popping up maybe there is some truth to it.

    Not passing immigration reform? What else are they doing that could be having that effect?

    Which states would Romney picked up with a higher proportion of the Hispanic vote?

    I'll give you a hint: it's less than one.
