Maybe Hispanics who are US CITIZENS vote in higher numbers. Which dont mean much cause we are still a small group. And many of us vote Repub.

Really? You got a link to prove your claims that Hispanics vote at a higher rate than white Americans? I'll be waiting.

From the article I posted:

Hispanics are less likely to vote than other groups, even if citizen. In the 2008 election, only 7.4% of voters were Hispanic.

Here's another "real numbers" article about the ethnic makeup of voters from the 2008 presidential election.

I agree as well. It's a well-known fact that the most politically active people in the U.S. are white people, middle age and up. Which makes up the GOP base. It has been scientifically proven that people of lower economic standing do not bother to vote, as it is evident with the fact that voter turnout amongst minorities is abysmal.

Thanks for the info, as you can see, hispanics have more than doubled the participation in the past 20 years, and this is only on people that self identify as spanish or hispanic, the real numbers are much higher. With the anglo vote divided; poorly educated anglos, and very wealthy anglos leaning gop, and educated anglos, and middle class, and hard working anglos leaning republican, the filed is set for spanish to make the difference....

You claimed that TODAY the Hispanic vote outnumbers the anglo vote which wasn't the truth. I asked you to provide proof of that and you didn't. The issue wasn't whether or not the Hispanic vote is growing but what their voting numbers are TODAY. Nice try at backpeddling.

Could you please identify where did I mention that there are more hispanic>anglo voters, that would not be correct, I stated that with a divided anglo vote, the increasingly large hispanic vote will be the one tilting the balance one way or the other, and with the gop compromised with the anglo sub group that is uneducated and racist, the spnish vote will continue pushig the outcomes in favor of democrats.......

I refer you back to your post #30.... "BTW, spanish tend to vote in higher percentages than anglos...."

Now I am done with you continuing to backpeddle and especially now that you have called anglo's who happen to be Republicans, uneducated and racist. That is very insulting and just another thing that you have claimed that is not the truth.
