Romney and Latinos

I'm quoted in this story on Mitt Romney and the Latino vote. He has changed his mind quite a lot since a year ago, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the entire country is aware of it.

What's clear, though, is that Romney sees an opportunity to scoop up a few more Latino votes, or at least get conservative Latinos to vote rather than sit at home. He does not see them as part of the 47% who are already dead set against him. This counts on voters consciously not caring that he is saying very different things in the past year, and forgetting the red meat lines he fed to anti-immigrant crowds during the primaries. Hard to see that working too well.
