Thus, the Hillary Clinton "position" is explained.
So there you go, and I am NOT surprised. I have alwasy said not to mistake Hispanics with Mexicans or any other Hispanic group since we come in all stripes and colors, literally. And I would expect this to be largely true even among Americans/Mexicans and Legal Mexicans residents, as well.
In the privacy of the voting booth most hispanics express their true feelings about illegal immigration. They support it.
Where is that a ballot issue on which one can vote?
What is your definition of "most hispanics"?
Since the voting booth protects privacy,how can you know how anyone votes?
On what do you base such a silly asertion?
Republican party takes soft stance on illegal immigration. Hispanics begin voting more for Republicans. Hispanics support hispanic immigration, legal or illegal. 1+1=2
So when the Bush amnesty passes it should cost the republicans hispanic votes? yeah, sure
I just don't see hispanics as some monolithic voting bloc that can be so easily pidgeon-holed.
Some may vote based on immigration policy.Some may be so called "values voters",voting based on religious beliefs or family traditions.Or for any number of other reasons or combinations of reasons.
Hispanics come in all flavors so predicting their voting behavior is way above my limited gift of clairvoyance.
But again,who knows,maybe you're right.
