This study sounds like a crock of propaganda "mierda". They surveyed 2015 people who had not self reported as being hispanic. They determined this mainly using surname through commercially available marketing lists/processes. I urge you to read the full report (and appendix) and judge for yourself. By the way, check out the name of the company where they buy their "data" I hope that you'll uncover the mess with their former chairman and his generous contributions to the DNC. Non partisan? I think not.

Oh, come on folks, do your relish being so negative?

Judy, comparing Senator Obama to Hitler is downright disgusting!! We are not a democracy, we are a republic! And McCain is an old gizzard who will do nothing for our country. What has he done for the country in the 30 years he has been a senator?? Other than sending our military men and women to an unnecessary war and contributing to the disastrous state of our nation today? Just because you say the horrid things you do, does NOT make it so!

Oscar, you obviously are uninformed. Senator Obama is a Christian, and not a Muslim. Besides, don't confuse the radical Muslims with the rest of the people of the Muslim faith. Please stop spreading your crapola!! Please get off the methamphinamine, it is damaging your brain.

Nobody EVER asks me who I am voting for or against. These 'studies' are PURE propaganda. Pure, unadulterated, in your face, certified PROPAGANDA.

NinaK, take a chill pill, g/f. There are plenty out here that think Oprahma is nothing but the great baloney slicer. You will NEVER convince me otherwise. Take a day off. Your comments are a little loose with the 'truth' as well; your 'truth' is not everyone's 'truth'. As far as drugs are concerned, your comments are a weak attack on comments that are at least as credible as yours.

Letter From Soldier in Afghanistan (On Obama's Visit)
Hello everyone,
I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram, Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to "The War Zone.
I want to share with you what happened.
He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle, got to the
area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at
Bagram
As Soldiers lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn't say
a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General.
As he finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big
top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with
weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball.
He again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for
their service.
So really he was just here to make a showing for the American's back
home that he is their candidate for President.
I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way
over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they
are providing for you.
I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the
Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be
the President of the United States.
I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our
Commander-and-Chief.
It was almost that he was scared to be around those that
provide the freedom for him and our great country.
If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry, but I wanted you all to
know what kind of caliber of person he really is.
What you see in the news is all fake.
In service,
TF Wasatch

God bless you for your on the ground report of the "Great Pretender".
And THANK YOU for your service!

republicans aren't offering rediculously easy admission to ivy-league schools based on "equality" measurements that are determined not by the number of us-born hispanic 18 year old college applicants but rather the number of foreign-born 35 year old hispanic housepainters. According to liberal logic, an increased number of old housepainters who just immigrated last week is justification to lower the required SAT scores for current hispanic college applicants. "Equality" is a moving target in the context of immigration--and hispanics both know and abuse the system.

The question isn't whether minorities are organized and vote in their interests. We know the answer to that question. The question is whether whites and asians will finally wake up and start voting in THEIR interest.

Intente cambiar, obama, pero soy blanco todavia.

I'd like to know what happened to McCain's toughness? He turned weak all of a sudden. Is this the same guy that turned rabid when he was debating other Republicans during the primaries? The same guy that I swear looked like he was going to jump over the podium to go after Romney. It's like he's giving up. Maybe he should pretend Obama is a Republican. This is just my observation - I'm for neither candidate. I supported Ron Paul but unfortunately he never stood a chance.
Thank you

I don't believe this study anyways. The Mexican immigrants that I know, all legal citizens now, don't trust BO, or black people in general. I think this study has some dubious integrity.

Wow! You absolutely need to do your research regarding Senator McCain and Obama. Through less than 30 minutes of research, you will quickly discover what both of these canidates has done. If you want to do some GREAT research, drive through Senator Obama's wards that he was suppose to be taking care of. Having driven through that community and seeing all the "change" he has done, I will ABSOLUTELY NOT vote for Obama. If he can not take care of a few simple wards in Chicago, how is he going to run the entire United States?

In addition, if you would take a couple of weeks and read both of Obama's books, you will quickly learn that he is part of the Muslim faith and even attend Muslim schools.

Unfortunately, it is uninformed voters like you who have not done your research that continually vote for the wrong canidates, and vote based solely on what you read from the medie, which is always one-sided.
Thank you

Blacks have a history of voting in lousy candidates (stroger, tillman, etc.) simply because they are black, but the Hispanics I know have more common sense than this.

I do not believe that poll. I worked for many years, in Miami, with many Hispanic, mostly Cubans,in the construction trades and I know that Hispanics and blacks do not like each other.I have spoken to at least 20 or 30 Hispanics and 80% said they would never vote for Hussein Obama.In the weeks ahead when all the ads tell the truth about the phony Obama. Wright, Ayers, Rezko, Phleger, his cling comments, his militant wifes comments, his vote on killing babies if they are born alive in a abortion, his votes on anti-gun laws, his flip flops, etc. etc,you will see 100% different polls. I still believe there is a real smoking gun out there being held back for the right time, that will destroy this dangerous liberal socialist.I hope so.McCain in 2009!!!!!!!!

I'm glad to read that Hispanic voters are more intelligent than many other Americans. Voting one's economic interest, instead of being lead by a GOP Pied Piper, spouting 'family values, etc., is what voting is all about. The super-rich have NEVER failed to vote for Republicans.

Most Republican voters are just wage slaves who aren't smart enough to see that they're being suckered and exploited into voting against their own self-interest. It's to the point where it takes a very special kind of stupid to vote Republican...or just a lot of self-hatred.

How many times can these fools be exploited by the myth of trickle-down economics, for example? Ahh well, just bring up some religious nonsense or exploit guns and you can cull these simpletons into the herd. They hear guns and completely ignore the rest of these people's agenda.

Latinos should vote for Obama. Hes the only progressive voice who will give immigrants healthcare and welcome many more to this country. He will legalize hard working immigrants. He will send their kids to college and make the rich suburbanite kids work if they want to go to school. He stands for fairness worldwide!

The more I listen and watch Obama, the more frightened I am for my country. This man is dangerous. Reminds me of another arrogant self-centered man who started a war in Europe about 78 years ago. This man would not listen to his generals because he thought he knew more than his generals on how to run a war; Obama won't listen to our generals either and he's not even president, just thinks he is. He needs to realize that this is America, not Africa, and we are a democracy and have a presidential election in Nov. and to quit showing his 'presidential seal', redecorating the Lincoln bedroom in his mind, and he already is making arrangements to move into the White House. Before long, he'll be declaring martial law.
Aww, bitter much? Upset that the Republican Dictatorship is about to lose it's death grip on the country?
um
Wahh
