Comment: Winning Hispanic Vote - The Washington Post reports on a Pew Hispanic Center report "In their basic political party identification - the continental plates of American politics - 67 percent of Hispanics identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party, compared with 20 percent who lean toward Republicans. The 47-point Democratic advantage is larger than at any point in more than a decade of polls, including 2008, when 26 percent of Hispanics sided with the Republican Party The wide Democratic advantage among Hispanics may help Obama in 2012, but much of their electoral clout has yet to be realized, due both to lower eligibility and turnout rates." Will Hispanic voters back Obama in 2012 in spite of his not living up to any of his campaign promises to them last time around? Please let us know what you think by writing to us at
