remember when folks were claiming that unlike the "black vote," the "latino vote" was up for grabs?

How does that compare to a generic democrat/generic republican type survey of Hispanic voters? I don't really know the political demographics that well.

I think there's a misconception/wishful thinking among the GOP that as long as the latino population agrees with the GOP about certain policies, they will ignore the GOP's unrepetant racism and (maybe! with the grace of God!) vote for them

here's your answer:

Among the findings, 69.5 percent consider themselves Democrats or lean that way, while just 15.9 percent consider themselves Republican or lean that way.

unless something dramatic happens, this election (meaning the general) is over.

and i'm ok w/ that.

clearly the GOP needs to push for immigration restrictions retroactive to 1972

just to annoy Morbz... was recently discussing the prospect/likelihood of Hillary running in '16. Biden's bound to be an uninspiring candidate, and it would seem like this would be her best opportunity. otoh, at that point would she be deemed too old? (eg older than Reagan was when he ran...?)

eh if we're coming off of a second obama pres + the gop is still in chaos + the economy is okay + there isn't another strong dem candidate, it might be too tempting to resist. I'm not sure what I'd rate the chances of all of those things being true. but she prob isn't willing to go through a brutal fight.

iatee, Wednesday, 21 March 2012 20:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

state of GOP in '16 will be interesting - Jeb will run if he thinks the Bush name can be rehabilitated. Otherwise it's likely to be an even more ridiculous re-run of this latest primary season imho

The funniest thing Newt's said in months came thanks to that Etch-a-Sketch. To a child to whom he'd given the thing: "Now you too can make your own presidential candidate!"

He's using one of those things you get at the supermarket, where you draw on plastic with a stylus and rip it from its cardboard backing when you're done.

The odds are probably low, but I can see where Hillary might run in 2016. The arguments against are numerous and obvious, starting with age and her public statements, but I think she has this core conviction that she was going to be the first female president, and that's a hard thing to let go of. Unless she has--maybe a controversy-free term as SOS, with high favorability, has softened that. She came perilously close to burning all her bridges in 2008, but she's well past all that; I'm sure her candidacy would be very well received. Whether Obama wins or loses would factor in. Not sure which would be better from her vantage point--it's hard for a party to win three in a row, so a loss would probably be better. Can't see Biden running in a million years.

I mean he's terribly uninspiring as a candidate but his ego is gigantic and plenty of VPs think "I deserve this"

and yeah it is hard to win three in a row, but the GOP is imploding in such a spectacular manner, without Jeb in the picture it's hard to see where a galvanizing, unifying figure is going to come from in the next 4 years.

In six years Biden won't be in any shape to run across the street.

Now that the nomination's basically done with, Mitt will have to step up his gaffe-of-the-day strategy to keep this interesting--bigger gaffes, better gaffes, more of them. He--his campaign--got off to an excellent start yesterday. But Obama's side should know enough to sit back and let things like the Etch-a-Sketch story take care of themselves. (Yesterday they jumped in.) They're kind of vulnerable on that point.

I said "I think"--an opinion. And really, I don't see what's so weird about it at all.

The popular caricature of Biden as either a simpleton (late-night talk shows) or a party animal (The Onion) probably doesn't do him any favors were he to contemplate a presidential run in 2016. Also he would be (slightly) older than Dole was in '96.

xp Don't most presidential hopefuls have a keen sense of their potential historical significance and - in order to keep them going through the long, brutal slog - a certain sense that they are destined for it?
