According to exit polls, Obama won 60 percent of the Latino vote in Florida yesterday up from 57 percent in 2008 and 44 percent for John Kerry in 2004. According to separate polling from Latino Decisions Tuesday, nearly one in five voters in Florida was Latino, and 63 percent of those polled said that Romney either "doesn't care much" or is "hostile toward" the Latino community. Nationally, Obama beat Romney by a 71-27 percent margin with Latino voters, according to the national exit polls.
"Estamos bien, estamos bien, votando por Obama, estamos bien," a group of Puerto Rican voters sang on Tuesday afternoon, 100 feet outside a polling station in the swing county of Osceola, Florida. ["We are good, we are good, voting for Obama, we are good."] As one woman salsa-danced in place, a young man banged a hand drum to keep the rhythm.
"You don't see that at every polling place," commented Osceola resident, Juan Figueroa.
In the mostly-Puerto Rican neighborhood of Buenaventura Lakes, the mood was cheerful on Tuesday. Many wanted to talk about the changing electorate and power of the growing Latino vote. More than 80 percent of the votes cast at that precinct were for Obama, according to Osceola's tallies.
"I'm seeing an enormous excitement to vote here. It's unprecedented. It's just anecdotal at this point, of course, but I'm curious to see how this will have an effect on Florida," said Osceola commissioner, Democrat John Quiñones, who was elected to represent Buenaventura Lakes.
Indeed, more Latinos turned out to vote than local leaders had expected.
"They showed up, just look at those numbers for the Democrats -- it can only be the Hispanic vote," said Latino leader in Osceola, Guillermo Hansen, as he watched vote counts being tallied....

Funny, I thought they were all Catholics. I guess not............
The struggle for power will be between the blacks the the Latinos will be quickly resolved with the creation of an immutable nanny state. A one party systemt dominated by the DNC machine.
A society of free sustenance and cheap entertainment for the bastard class....run by an uneasy coalition of Black apparatchiks and Latino politicos.
Now, as to who will pay for it all.....
Lesson learned: Lie,lie as much and as often as you can. Tell everyone the the democrats hate you. Tell everyone that the democrats want to take away all benefits. Tell everyone that only the repubs care. Repeat it as often as needed until everyone believes the lie.
Its not 4 more years......this is over, the Republic is dead, it will never recover now.
I never thought I'd escape from one communist dictatorship only to land in another. . All those people from the eastern bloc that came here to escape like I did, are now trapped once again.
You don't know what its like........but you're going to find out unfortunately. I'm an old man, but I feel so sad for my children.
God damn to Hell every asshole that threw their future away, because they also threw away our hopes and dreams.”
“Whites will continue to be marginalized and despised. Just my opinion.”
Yer’ right. I still continue to despise the mexiclowns as they despise me at the same time. The feeling is mutual. Their vote destroyed my country and I’m the one who is supposed to apologize?? F*** em.
They’re mostly Catholics, but with a fair share of Evangelicals and Mormons. However, most of the Catholics don’t go to church on a regular basis but still identify themselves as Catholics when asked. And unfortunately the Catholic Church completely fell down on contacting even those who do go to church, because the stupid statement from the USCCB was so ambiguous that most of them probably didn’t have any idea what they were being told (don’t forget, there are still a lot of elderly treasonous bishops in the USCCB).
The irony (and insanity) is that this president’s most loyal supporters are the very people who have been hurt the worst by this president’s economic policies. Nobody has higher unemployment than African Americans and Latinos. Yet they fall all over themselves to re-elect him. Makes no sense at all.
So they are saying it was the Criminal Alien votes that helped Odamnit to win FLA?
Need to ship them Mo**erf**kes back ASAP.
Blacks hate Latinos (or Hispanics, or whatever you want to call them) because they are just a hardworking immigrant group that is, even with the language handicap, doing better economically than the American-born blacks, who have sold their souls to the government. Foreign born or raised blacks, such as Jamaicans, Dominicans and the children of Kenyan graduate students, are different and actually succeed, which should tell American blacks something about the non-existent benefits of being on the Democrat plantation.
So Latinos are not and never have been thrilled to be lumped in with the politically controlled black minority, but the attitudes of some “conservatives” are driving them to this.
I think we need to get in on the side of the Latinos, who are going to be the numerical majority, and convert them to an outspoken American conservatism. But that can only happen if conservatives stop hating them.
Add to that fray, the MUSLIMS. 3 way fight at that poin, and I will guarantee you the MUSLIMS will win.
I would say that anyone who is white and unarmed in this coming society is pretty much as good as dead. Lock and load.
