Puerto Ricans are key in Florida presidential vote

Nov 4, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: SFGate

President Barack Obama has a problem with Florida's important Puerto Rican voters, and it has little to do with the immigration and deportation issues that dominate so much of the national debate involving Hispanic voters.

Never said any such thing. Just more feeble ramblings from a syphilitic brain.

Latino vote may top 12 million in 2012
Number of registered Latinos has increased by 26% in last 4 years

The voting population of Latinos has exploded to the point where Latinos will not only be a decisive force in the presidential election, but will likely affect the outcome of political contests from school boards and statehouses to Congress, according a new report by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.
"Latino voter enthusiasm is up," said Arturo Vargas, executive director of NALEO. A recent poll by ImpreMedia-Latino Decisions confirms that analysis, counting three quarters of Latino voters as actively engaged in the election with 14% of all Latinos saying they are actively working on getting out the vote.
The number of registered Latinos has increased by 26% in the last four years to 12.2 million or 8.7% of all voters. A new potential Latino voter turns 18 every 30 seconds. Already, one of four U.S. citizens under the age of 18 is Latino, including 48% of the youth population of Texas, Vargas said, but low voter registration among young people and new voter ID laws could dampen turnout.
Clarissa Martinez, who works on civic engagement for the National Council of La Raza, cautioned that Latino voting power is held back by a lack of registration. "Once Latinos register they vote in nearly as high a numbers as anyone," she said. But a third of the entire community is not yet 18, another 23% are ineligible because their immigration status and just 14 million of the 24 million eligible Latino voters have actually registered, she said.
Even so, Martinez added "they can't get to the White House without the Latino vote, not with out a sizeable share... the Democrats need at least a majority but the Republicans cannot fall below a certain floor and they're not quite there just yet," meaning that Democrats need to pull in big numbers of Latinos voting for them and Republicans need to meet a threshold they haven't yet secured.
If Latinos do turn out in high numbers, their effect on the presidential elections could be decisive. A 2008 CNN exit poll showed that 67% of Latino voters went with then-Sen. Barack Obama to 31% for Sen. John McCain.
An Oct 17-20 poll of likely Latino voters conducted by NBC News with the Wall Street Journal and Telemundo had Obama at 70% to Mitt Romney's 25%.
"President Obama today enjoys a lead in the battleground states, and that is because of the Latino vote," said Maria Cardona, a Democratic CNN analyst.
But the presidential elections are not the only elections where Latinos could have a major impact. Vargas said Latinos are increasingly running at the county level, on school boards, to offices that once seemed out of reach, then moving up from there. There are Latinos running for Senate and House seats this year in 39 of the 50 states. NALEO projects there will be 10 new Latino state senators to bring the total to 77. There are currently 190 Latinos in state houses and assemblies and NALEO expects that number to rise to 217, with Hispanics running in 21 states including places as far flung as Arkansas and Maine.
...contin.
Back up jose, the "Latino is over estimated, in my opinion. Few vote." in quotation marks no less came straight from the article. Go jump all over Charles Babington from the Associated Press, he is the one who wrote it. Now until you know what you are talking about or at least read the article and thread, STFU U MORON!

I live surrounded by Mexicans, they couldn't care less about voting. It's all about give me welfare, food stamps,CEDA, free medical care,free education,etc. and I(they) will continue to breed. One thing I find very funny,,,, they wave their Flag and proud of their country but dis us(those who support them). They are too stupid to realize their country /Government doesn't care about them ,,,only the remittance.
I saw two up town carrying a sign urging people to vote for the "Dream Act" but there isn't anything like one on our ballot anywhere.

But then again, anything they protest for,vote for,demand is simply "just for Them" . They(illegals) couldn't care less about the Americans struggling due to the burden the Government is inflicting on us to support them. One thing I notice(not related to the topic at hand tho) is that the Anchor kids when they grow up are pretty angry,hateful individuals ;towards others. I wonder why? As I see it,,, no one is responsible for their misfortunes but themselves and of course their CorruptGovernment. Our Government has always given them welfare,etc. But yet they are so angry and hateful. Maybe it's time for them to fix what's wrong with their Country once and for all.

No Sir its not anger nor hate we feel,it's frustration. Frustration at our Government for forcing us to pay for Mexico's responsibility(his People).
