Republican US presidential candidate Mitt Romney is polling significantly worse with Hispanic voters than did the previous two Republican nominees, according to a Reuters article by Susan Heavey. This is despite Romney’s support for more Third World immigration, his pledge not to reverse Obama’s recent amnesty for two million illegal immigrants and his use of his Spanish-speaking son Craig to address Hispanic crowds and profess his support for more immigration. Despite his support for a non-White USA, Romney is unpopular with Mexicans and other Hispanics in the United States, with whom he is polling at only 21% compared to Obama’s 69%. In 2008 John McCain got about 31% of the Hispanic vote while George W Bush got about 40 percent. The Reuters article also highlights the rapid demographic transformation of the US into a Third World land:
While white voters are still the majority, changing U.S. demographics and the rise of Latino and other ethnic minority births mean they will make up a greater share of the electorate in coming decades.
The number of eligible Hispanic voters increased 21.4 percent from 2004 to 2008, nearly five times the growth rate of eligible voters overall, Pew data show.
Today, nearly 24 million Hispanics are eligible to vote, the center said, and many of them are optimistic.
While Hispanics are optimistic as they gain more political and economic clout with their increasing numbers, White people in the US exhibit historic levels of pessimism as their percentage of the population declines due to US immigration, economic and social policies.
