No one because they all need the Latino vote so no one will fully commit. Newt might talk a good game but once he's in office he'll be just like all theothers before him and next to nothing.

Commit to what, pander and kiss butt, don't think so, if that is how they have to go after the hispanic vote, oh well.

Romeney had commit to me, he has a stance and he ain't backing down from it.
You telling me Obama does not need the hispanic vote, is this why he bows down to their every whim, and kisses butt every chance he has.

It seems like the Latino vote isn't as great as it could be.
I addressed this in another post Is the importance of Latino voters exaggerated ?

It seems that the turnout is not as great as it could be. By pandering to one group you always risk alienating others.

Immigration isn't the only issue most Americans of Latino heritage are interested in. The economy is probably much greater issue.

Recent immigrants and those with Illegal family are probably more concerned with this.

I was watching the news today and they said 68% of the Latinos think the most important thing is inmigration and they have faith in Obama but they feel like he let them down because he couldnt pass an inmigration reform but they still would vote for him in November. The Democrats are latino friendly, that's why they would always (or the majority) vote Democrat. There's no way the latino community would ever vote for a Republican candidate. Being latino and voting republican makes no sense, its like being gay and voting republican. Why would they vote for a party that wants to take their rights away ?

How someone feels in a poll isn't as important as ACTUALLY going out and voting.

There's plenty of Latino and Gay Republicans also so there goes your theory.

BTW do you any ideas why the percentage of eligible Latino voters that ACTUALLY vote is so low?

Most of the latinos and gays are independent or democrats. Im sure there are some gay republicans out there but its VERY hard to find one.
