POLL: RUBIO SUPPORT AMONG LATINOS SAME AS ROMNEY
Breitbart ^ | July 1, 2013 | By Mike Flynn

Posted on 07/01/2013 3:29:26 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

A new poll from Latino Decisions finds Democrat Hillary Clinton easily besting Sen. Marco Rubio in a potential presidential match-up among Hispanic voters. Clinton draws 66% of Hispanic voters, while Rubio garners just 28%. Against Vice President Joe Biden, Rubio trails 60-28%. If Rubio's level of support looks familiar, it's probably because Mitt Romney got 27% of the Hispanic vote last November.

Many GOP leaders have convinced themselves that supporting comprehensive immigration reform, with a path to citizenship, is critical in broadening the party's appeal to Hispanics. Sen. Rubio has been a tireless advocate for this position for months and was instrumental in securing passage of the Senate amnesty bill. Yet, in this poll of 1,200 Hispanic presidential election voters, he garners the same level of support as the recent GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

Other high-profile GOP supporters of amnesty fare even worse. Rep. Paul Ryan only draws 25% support against Hillary Clinton. Former FL Governor Jeb Bush earns the support of just 20% of Hispanic voters.

Among Hispanic voters, 31% hold a favorable view of Sen. Rubio, just edging the 29% with an unfavorable view. Rep. Paul Ryan and Jeb Bush are upside down on favorability by 11 and 12 points respectively. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who was an outspoken critic of the Senate amnesty bill, actually has a better net-favorable rating than all three. 25% of Hispanic voters view him favorably, against 20% with an unfavorable view.

I think Rubio knows the reality of it. He also knows that if he toes the Democrat, Corporate line his financial future is rosy even should he lose his re=election. I am sure that, if he does not cooperate, he and his family have been assured that their future will have some severe bumps and his family will, perhaps, not have so many members. I strongly suspect that he, and Justice Roberts have been the recipients of “offers they can’t refuse.” That is how Chicago people do things.

The Republicans would be better off if they tried to increase their share of the black vote from the 5% to 10% range to the 10% to 15% range. The Republicans should also try to increase their share of the Asian American vote. Screw the Hispanic vote.

Bull. No, such posturing is transparent pandering, and recognized as such by the people it targets. It is, in fact, very insulting.

Return to basics. Law and order. Equal justice before a court of law. Promote Constitutional principles - the inalienable rights of all U.S. citizens: freedom of religion, freedom of association, and the right to defend yourself and protect your property.

As in the old Aesop's fable, his greed for an imaginary thing left him with nothing.

A Dog, to whom the butcher had thrown a bone, was hurrying home with his prize as fast as he could go. As he crossed a narrow footbridge, he happened to look down and saw himself reflected in the quiet water as if in a mirror. But the greedy Dog thought he saw a real Dog carrying a bone much bigger than his own.

He dropped his bone and sprang at the Dog in the river, only to find himself swimming for dear life to reach the shore. At last he managed to scramble out, and as he stood sadly thinking about the good bone he had lost, he realized what a stupid Dog he had been.

Notice that Cruz has a better favorability margin that Rubio among Latinos.

Latino-Americans, the legal ones, oppose amnesty. Pandering doesn't attract their vote.

The left and the MSM have created the likes of Rubio and McCain etc for the Left’s purpose of bamboozeling the low information voters:

“See? Here is a republican who is latino and supports immigration reform....”

“See? Here is a military hero, republican who is willing to cross the aisle....”

Neither were created by the Right for purposes of the Right

My canadian GF has the same mentality. If she and others before her went through the same grueling 10 year process, then why is next generation going to to take the easy road? They, the illegals, should have started the paperwork going once each anchor baby was born or when they step foot into the country.

And a Rubio campaign in 2016 will have the same results as McCain and Romney. That’s why the far left is trying to make Rubio seem inevitable.

I don’t think Rubio needed an offer he couldn’t refuse on this one. He was never good on this issue. I just didn’t think he’d be this bad...or this stupid. I thought Rubio would be the first to learn the lessons of the amnesty disaster of 2006 and find a middle ground that conservatives would be comfortable with. I am actually shocked that he stood by this bill all the way to the finish.

When this began a few months ago, I said this would either either make or break Rubio’s career. It would either be a master stroke of finding real common ground or be his downfall. It clearly is the later. Not only do I not want him to be president. I won’t even vote for him again for Senate. It was that bad.

Letting people in when they break the law is not OK and they should go back to their country and apply for a visa like the legal immigrants do not stay here and get a green card while legals have to wait back in their country on their dime

John Semmens-style quote from Rubio...

"I don't understand this," exclaimed Senator Rubio. "Senator Schumer promised me that I would be much more popular if only I voted to throw the borders open to the not-yet-documented, and give each of them someone's job (or welfare), medical care and the vote (actually votes). I guess the joke's on him."

Sonya Sotomayor = Wise Latina; Marco Rubio = Foolish Latino

Why did Marco Rubio seem to have such a bright future except that he was HISPANIC and people assumed that the vast majority of Hispanics would vote for him if he ran for president?

But here he is being trounced by Hillary Clinton among Hispanic voters in a hypothetic presidential poll.

The problem was that those telling Marco Rubio to start picking out drapes for the Oval Office failed to take into account that he is an Hispanic REPUBLICAN.

As Clarence Thomas found out, just because someone is African-American doesn’t mean his fellow African-Americans will rush to support him. In fact, if he’s a REPUBLICAN, they will rush to lead the mob to electronically lynch him. Imagine what Clarence Thomas’s numbers would be among blacks in a hypothetical presidential match-up with Hillary Clinton.

When will Republicans start basing their support for future presidential candidates on their CHARACTERS rather than on their purported ability to attract various types of minority voters who have repeatedly demonstrated that they HATE Republicans regardless of their color, ethnic origin, religion, or desperate efforts to pander?

The media has convinced practically all non-whites (blacks, hispanics, 3rd world immigrants) that they are democrats .

ever try to convert any liberal or democrat? it's easier to convert a Muslim. so this is why the democrats want to import 100 million 3rd world immigrants. this is why they imported all these 3rd world non white immigrants with their 1965 immigration act. It's all to advance progressive(socialism) policies : the goal to turn the USA into a socialist/communist state.

Great post — data is great.

Blacks view M Steele and other black conservatives as traitors and enemies. The social pressure on blacks to conform to approved black political thought is tremendous. You wouldn’t believe the level and extent of pressure and propaganda from the schoolhouse to the church.
I have direct knowledge of it. I also have direct knowledge of how the law-abiding, immigrants and others, view the rule-of-law and how hard the legal immigrants work to become citizens. We must never devalue American citizenship. It is precious and means something greater than any citizenship in history.
