  •  The question is whether Latinos in particular, (0+ / 0-)

    and many of their allies in general, will be motivated to turn out and vote, in the way that Voter Suppression efforts last year motivated Blacks to turn out in record numbers. That includes getting legal immigrants to become citizens. It includes major efforts at registration. Then it comes down to the usual GOTV.

    The key to this Gordian knot (and mixed metaphor) is Obama's commanding lead—among non-voters.

    Among these adults, 43 percent said they preferred Mr. Obama while 17 percent backed Mr. Romney. Since quite a few Americans fit into this category — about 4 in 10 American adults will not vote in November — it is easy to see how Mr. Obama could have a double-digit lead when they are added back into the total, like in the Kaiser Family Foundation poll.
    Battleground Texas, among others, is committed to making that happen. You can help.
