I think we can all agree, the majority of Latinos will be voting for Obama, he's for the poor people of this country.

"Hispanics’ reliance on the government safety net helps explain their ongoing support for the Democratic Party. Indeed, liberal spending policies are a more important consideration for Hispanic voters than ethnic identification or the so-called values issues that they are often said to favor."

Perhaps the reason it's up for grabs is that Pols are realizing there's little value to be had, compared to the political cost of pandering to them.

I don't have my calulator handy, but I think there's additional zeros before the 0.18%.
