    If Obama is only getting 53% of the Cuban vote, imagine how this skews the percentage he is getting of the Mexican vote which predominates amongst the Latino communities in those states.

      than many realize. Surprisingly, it didn't go strong red until Reagan. The Democratic Party here seemed all but dead until recently, but has been revitalized in the last several years. We only need to gain five seats this year to control the Texas House. Partly because of the Hispanic population, Texas is now forecast to be reliably blue by 2020 (!), but I'm hoping we get there a little faster. :)
