Hispanics to Marco, Forget It, Amigo
by

After going to the wall for “comprehensive immigration reform,” at least partly so that more voters with Spanish last names would consider Republicans cuddly and vote for them, Marco Rubio got a glimpse Monday at his payoff for this demonstration of ethnic solidarity. An outfit called Latino Decisions released a poll saying that if the election were held today, 66 percent of Latino voters would support Hillary Clinton while 28 percent would vote for Rubio.

Wow! Wonder how poorly Marco would have done among Latino voters without whooping up his plan to give amnesty to law breakers and line-hoppers. In the poll, the sample of which was made up of 1,200 Latino voters from the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, Rubio also loses to that laugh-a-minute caballero, Jose Biden 60-28.

I hope Marco isn’t too surprised by this rejection. He could have anticipated this if he had just talked to his Gang of Eight co-conspirator John McCain. After whooping up the “We Don’t Need No Stinking Borders Act of 2007,” so similar to the current Senate immigration hairball, McCain racked up just 31 percent of the Hispanic vote against Barack Obama when he ran for president a year later.   

Latino Decisions says the margin of error for this poll is +/- 2.8 percent. Republicans’ margin of error with Latino voters is obviously much larger, and perhaps, considering recent developments in Washington, more permanent than our southern border (such as it is).
