    And that just sends the message that you think a group of constituents are dumb.

    This group of the electorate if anything is the farthest from low information voter that I can think of in years. Latino voters are often more actively engaged than any other voter type I've been participant to in many years.

    They are also tapping in at local levels as well, which doesn't bode well for the GOP in your south western strong holds like NM, AZ, and TX

      more common outside the US than within when compared to certain segments of our population.

      When we allow more immigration, it's not just that we provide better opportunities for the immigrants that come here but that we benefit from their pragmatic and thoughtful attitudes!

      There are parts of the US that feel so 1860s.  (not a dig on our southern brothers - these attitudes are everywhere)

      We are on the cusp of good things.
