Romney vs. Obama Among Latinos: A 52-Point Gap

How does Mitt Romney find a route to the presidency if he is losing Latino voters with a 52-point gap? Here’s news on the most recent Latino Decisions tracking poll:

87% of Latino voters say they are almost certain they will vote on November 6th, which includes 8% of Latino voters have already voted.  In 2008, 84% of Latino registered voters cast a ballot according to Census statistics. […]

Overall, Obama has the support of 73% of all Latino registered voters, compared to 21% who favor Romney.  The 52-point gap matches the largest gap among Latinos this year, also found in the October 1 tracking poll.

What’s the answer to this? Pump up the volume with the white resentment voter–Romney’s base? I don’t think so. Romney has probably already maxed-out his white resentment vote. So what does he do?

    Rmoney is a joke. The Republicans and George W are the ones that brought us the worse economic downturn in history. Now they want us to believe that the Ken Dall Robot is our great white hope, please.

    Corporations are people? People who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to take care of them, who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it? What a fool.

    The people who receive the disproportionate share of government spending are not big-government lovers. They are Republicans. They are senior citizens. They are white men with high school degrees. As Bill Galston of the Brookings Institution has noted, the people who have benefited from the entitlements explosion are middle-class workers, more so than the dependent poor.

    But Rmoney wants to divide our country and blame those who have been hit worse by an economic disaster created by Republicans and George W, please, what a joke your party has become.
