      That Republicans will nominate anyone who can appeal to Hispanics, even if something gets done on immigration. Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio are all apostates and I don't think any of them will make it through the nominating process.

      Plus, even if a) immigration reform is achieved and b) Republicans nominate someone Hispanic-friendly, what incentive is there for Hispanics to vote for a party that just 4 years ago was calling the undocumented (who undoubtedly include friends of family) "illegals"? There is no reason they'll abandon the Democratic party.

    •  You know that Hillary spent her formative years (2+ / 0-)

      Working with organizations like LULAC in south Texas registering Hispanics?

      It really doesn't matter who Republicans nominate, Hillary will destroy them with Hispanics to a degree never seen before if only because she'll be able to improve substantially on Democratic scores with the group in Texas (and bring them in line with other southwestern Hispanics).

      If Republicans, like they're likely to do, nominate an anti-Hispanic bigot again, Hillary will easily get 75% with a good chance at getting over 80%.
