Republican Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is dismissing the idea that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney needs a specific plan to win over women and Latino voters.

During a Sunday interview, Fox News host Chris Wallace noted that President Barack Obama had a significant lead among women, Hispanics and low-income workers.

"During the campaign, Romney said he opposes the DREAM Act, he supports the Arizona crackdown on illegals, he said illegals should self deport," Wallace pointed out. "A lot of Hispanics express concern about those positions. He can't just say, 'I didn't mean it.'"

"I don't think he has to at all," Daniels replied. "He gives away nothing here with regards to the president who has been, I believe, very duplicitous sometimes on this very same subject, but I think he's got to speak the language honestly, not narrow broadcasting -- narrow-casting, let's say -- to individual groups, as much as the language of unity that talks about the issues the unite us all, the threats that menace us all."

Daniels added that Romney's economic policies were good enough that he didn't need to cater directly to groups like women and Hispanics.

"Gov. Romney is already getting good marks for his superior point of view on the thing that bothers Americans most. It bothers everyone, all those groups you just mentioned as much as anyone. So, he's got a great opening, and I think he'll seize it."
