Suddenly, this guy isn't looking like such a winner anymore. People who thought voting for Romney was the ticket to beating Obama are having buyer's remorse. And if Mitt thought he could count on Cuban Republicans in South Florida - a very sizable part of the Florida Republican electorate - he didn't help himself with his odd theory that the solution to the country's immigration problem is to make people miserable enough to want to leave on their own.
