  •  Rubio will help with Latinos (3+ / 0-)

    about as much as Palin did with women.

    Latinos ain't that dumb...and Rubio will need to tone down his immigration stuff to get through the primaries.

    •  In his own senate election he won (0+ / 0-)

      40 percent of non-Cuban Latino voters and 78 percent of Cuban voters -

      only 52% of cuban voters supported Romney

            My dumb trying to keep up with the diary.

            I don't think we are gonna convince each other, and we've got at least 3 years before we will have any real inkling which one of us is right.

            I basically don't think that latinos will be snowed, or the radical right swayed, by Rubio.

            You think otherwise.  I hope I'm right.
