Latinos Shifting To The Democratic Party

Rahm, can you hear me? By 57 percent to 23 percent, more Hispanic registered voters say they favor Democrats than Republicans, according to a survey

Rahm, can you hear me?

By 57 percent to 23 percent, more Hispanic registered voters say they favor Democrats than Republicans, according to a survey by the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center.

That 34 percentage point Democratic edge — which includes people who said they lean toward either party — has grown since July 2006, when a Pew poll measured a 21 point difference. Then, 49 percent of registered Hispanic voters said they favored Democrats and 28 percent chose Republicans.

The Tom Tancredo/Malkin's of the GOP are to thank for this shift and I hope Rahm Emanuel is listening. Why he would push for this crazy Heath Shuler immigration stance is beyond me....

Can you help us out?
