    One top GOP operative said “we lose Hispanics this bad, we lose the whole election. Period.”
    That opinion is growing. National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (R-Texas) and other top party brass have made it known to Romney’s campaign that the party risks losing Hispanic voters by a historic margin, creating a downward draft on Senate and House candidates, according to two Hill sources.
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has also made clear that the tone of the campaign is political suicide for the party, the sources said.

    It's way too late for the Repubs to try to fix this.

    Their own words and actions from the last few years indict them.

    The only way they could make it up to Latino voters would be by voting for the Dream Act - but that would help President Obama more than the Repubs - so it ain't gonna happen.

    The Repubs are boxed in by the racism of their constituents.
    Repub voters would react with fury if the Repubs were to try to adopt a pro-illegals agenda.
    If the Repubs try to reach out to Latino voters the Repubs will lose votes from their base.

    The Repubs are just fucked.

    And today Rick Santorum said that if Puerto Rico wants to be a state they "should speak English."

    It's like they're trying to lose.

    Shhhh... they might hear you, and actually understand.

    I also laugh at reports that GOP "senior leaders" are trying to stop the primary carnage. Which makes me wonder:

    - How come these senior leaders weren't in charge, and even running for President themselves in the first place?

    - Are they implying that the GOP fielded the second-stringers to run for President? Was it always about showmanship, not statesmanship and competence?

    I'm looking forward to watching that Gang Bang on Election Day.

    I can hardly wait: Democrats controlling the House, the Senate AND the White House!!!!

    Well polls such as these are pretty meaningless, honestly. While a poll such as this one is kind of nice... it makes as much sense as one of those polls John (Socalfitness) pulls up showing Romney in front of Obama with the general electorate. Clearly Obama will win the Latino vote.

    The reality is, it will probably be a reasonably close election with Obama winning of course.

    Well now Senate Republicans are opposing a women's domestic violence bill. They already voted against it unanimously in committee, but the Dems there passed it for full Senate consideration. Democratic female Senators are furious, and going loudly public with their denunciation of a Republican pattern of anti-women initiatives (opposition to birth control, abortion, reproductive counseling, etc).

    And guess what Republicans insist is causing their opposition to the bill?

    [The bill] also dilutes the focus on domestic violence by expanding protections to new groups, like same-sex couples, [Republicans] say.

    Republicans really hate us gays, and want to hurt us and deny us rights in every way they can.

    How is Romney "ant-latino" again? Can someone show me some evidence of this? No one has been able to back up this allegation yet.

    It's mostly just a Dem talking point and "wishful thinking". Romney did just fine here in AZ among Latino voters. Romney will likely never win the Latino vote, but he may be able to chip away at Obama's solid advantage of it.

    Obama was incredibly beatable and the republicans have done everything possible to run the lamest candidates possible to lose to him. Bachmann? Perry? Santorum? Romney?
    I kind of hope Santorum gets the republican nomination so Obama wins by such a huge landslide that he feels like he has a mandate.

    1st, Santorum will likely not be getting the Republican nomination. It is Romney's to lose, and that is not likely. As for "lame" candidates, I will agree that some were less than suited for the Presidency -- Santorum, Perry, Bachmann, Cain among them. However, both Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney are extremely bright, capable men. In fact, I would go so far to say that both of them are as well-suited and intellectually equipped, not to mention having the strongest moral character and family values, to be President of any candidate the GOP have served up in many an election. I think the USA would be lucky to have either of them as the President. Obviously, it's not going to happen for Huntsman this time around -- a real shame, and the biggest disappointment of this election -- but make no mistake about it, Romney will be a solid candidate and a formidable opponent for Obama to defeat.

    Some people really do have fertile imaginations though!

    Romney is a craven and habitual liar and certainly not of "strong moral character."

    I disagree, as do millions of others, but you're entitled to your opinion which I have no doubt millions would also agree with. Regardless, I would be quite proud to have a President like Mitt Romney. I haven't heard a single thing about him, or his past, that would suggest to me in any way that he is not a man of strong values and moral character. In fact, he is arguably one of the squeakiest clean candidates in years.

    He put his dog in a carrier, strapped him on the roof of his car for a 12 hour drive to Canada. As a dog lover, that throws the "moral character" argument out the window as far as I'm concerned. In my opinion that is not only cruel but bizarre.
