Jorge Castañeda writes about the potential Republican boycott of a Univision debate.
But if they go ahead with the boycott, the contenders will have created another dilemma: Appearing to snub Univision's enormous audience could have grave consequences for the GOP nominee in November.
This is a common argument, but I don't think it is accurate. Latinos are already overwhelmingly Democrats, and have a very clear view of what the Republican primary strategy is like. It is therefore very hard to imagine too many Latinos suddenly changing their view of the Republicans, either for better or worse. The Univision issue will be very quickly forgotten, and will not change many, if any, minds.
