Latinos and the Electoral College


“If Texas becomes a blue state, it will become blue because of the Hispanic vote,” said Gilberto Hinojosa, the Texas Democratic Party chairman. 
“And the day that Texas becomes blue, it becomes mathematically impossible for Republicans to elect the president of the United States,” he said.


This is a very evocative--and provocative--way to think about the political demography of the Latino population. The article gets the electoral numbers a bit wrong, but if Texas voted democratic, then TX+CA+NY = 122 electoral votes, and that is a huge amount.

A key point here is the future, which is why demography is so critical. The population of the United States is changing, and many people--especially young people--who cannot currently vote eventually will start doing so. If the lopsided support for the Democratic Party persists and the Republican Party remains schizophrenic with its position on immigration and diversity, then the Electoral College will gradually become the Republican Party's worst enemy.

1VIDEO : The Democratic Party of Puerto Rico is furious with the Republican Governor and his Wife, this last lady presented Ann Romney to the RNC - According to Democrats they have no shame, after the Booing of Zoraida ( Puerto Rican Delegate Lady )


Watch the Video of the Booing and the "Governess" of Puerto Rico presenting Ann Romney to the RNC.

The Booing of Zoraida Fonalledas has created Political Attacks in Puerto Rico against the Republican Governor and his Wife, Democrats say that the Governor and his wife are "stooges" or "shills" of Mitt Romney. Republicans are blamed of having no shame and no dignity.

And that the Women in the Island of Puerto Rico are going to suffer because of the Republican Attacks against Abortion, Medicare, Medicaid, Birth Control and the Reproductive Rights of Women.
