Yep. I know many black people who are aware of Obama's stance who are fed up with illegal aliens and want them out. He has lost any chance of getting my vote because of his co-authoring of the DREAM Act and his support of ILLEGAL immigration. There are 3 of us on this board that I know of. There may be more.

Believe it or not, I would need more than one hand to count all of the Hispanic people I know who plan to vote for McCain.

I disagree that the issue is just illegal immigration. The problem goes much deeper than that and has to do with the economic need (for more workers) of this country not being addressed by the current immigration policies. Make it easier for people to immigrate to this country the right way. To immigrate to this country legally is too costly, time consuming, and difficult and this needs to be changed. Illegal immigration is just a consequence of this and thus is just a part of the issue.

The Latino vote is pretty much up for grabs, but I think more are starting to lean towards Obama.

McCain can't keep both Latinos and the Conservatives happy.

And I think Obama can count on the majority of the Black vote.
