    Yes Puerto Ricans are heavily Democratic, no question.

    I just think that immigration might be a bigger driver with Hispanics generally this year than ever before, and that's a big reason why Obama is exceeding 70% now with Hispanics in reliable polling.  Maybe I'm wrong and it's other things, but I really don't see anything else that would drive that group in particular to go more strongly for Obama than last time, when other groups are either holding steady or moving slightly away from the President compared to last time.  Immigration is the only thing that I can see explaining that, since it's the only issue that Hispanics would care about more than anyone else, and Romney is openly draconian.

    And if I'm right above, then it follows that Hispanics who care less about immigration are less likely to follow other Hispanics who care more about that issue.  That means Puerto Ricans and Cubans, both heavily concentrated in Florida.
