re: Demographics have Democrats targeting Texas and Arizona


quote:

agree that it shouldn't be the go to assumption, but in this scenario exit polling showed that Hispanics, by in large, have an economically liberal outlook. Only 11% named debt and deficit as their primary concern. The Republicans will have huge problems with Hispanics even if they are recognized for championing amnesty.


Bush & McCain(Texas & Arizona ironically) who understand this issue have championed it , BUT they get fierce push back from their own Party. Perry(Texas who understands) nearly got Jeered & nearly run from the primaries for simply allowing 'in state' tuition to immigrant Children.

No one has yet to explain why Bush got nearly 50% of the Hispanic vote. Free stuff?

Some Hispanics were still voting loyally Republican because of Reagan amnesty.

Hispanics liked the GOP. It's the GOP turning on Hispanics it seems to them with the anti immigrant vitriol.

social issues

GWB was from TX and had regional appeal in the SWUS

his brother was the governor of florida

when you have popularity in TX, Zona, OK, and Florida, you're going to swing a big chunk of the latino vote

Bush only lost 56% of the vote because most latinos are more liberal than conservative economically. Hispanics also, according to polling data, had a more hard line stance against abortion and gay marriage at that time.That helped Bush greatly. Nearly a decade has passed. Republicans have made some missteps on immigration since.

It's a combination of a lot of different things, though. It's not just immigration is what I'm saying. The problems the party has also include an economic outlook among the majority of hispanics that is different from the party's.
