I think Marco Rubio will have little more appeal to Latinos than did Mitch

I think FatHead J.E.B. has better appeal than Rubio.

1. Rubio can't be on Jeb's ticket either. Both from same state

2. Oh I know that. I wasn't suggesting that ticket. I hope I didn't imply that I was.

3. Republicans use minorities as tokens

People see through their nonsense.

They thought that Sarah was an equivalent to Hillary just because they were both female..

5. I agree, this was a wake up call

a teaching moment .. he's a bagger or at least pimps for them.

Plus, he used his GOP credit card for 100 grand of personal expenses and said he got mixed up.. uh huh

9. and his Cuban-ness is at issue as well anyway, since he was born here

My father was born in Havana, but his mother was from France and his father from Spain, so being Cuban was only by virtue of having been born there. He called himself Cuban, but was he really?

If a Texan and a Virginian have a baby while in Canada, is their child a "real" Canadian?

6. Hispanics

Though Rubio is Hispanic, he is Cuban and does not resonate with other Hispanics from Mexican, PR, or South American heritages. GOP can't tell the differences though LOL

7. Latinos are very diverse.

Mexicans have different issues than Puerto Ricans, who have different issues than Dominicans, who have different issues than Central Americans, etc.

So just sticking any Latino on a ticket means nothing.

The GOP continues to treat us like we are stupid.

16. California Hispanics are incredibly diverse, from San Diego to Central to Northern counties

I lived 25 years in LA County and 25 years an hour or so north of SF and know a lot about the Central Cal population. Mostly Mexican descent. The generation ... immigrant, 1st, 2nd i.e. acculturation ... also has a lot of influence.

It runs the gamut of social, financial and cultural differences...perhaps a narrower continuum. But two things I notice are pretty much common overall ... the Catholic religion and the culture of respect for pretty much everyone. Which is why I believe most are, as the last sentence well states, not inclined to vote for those who ... to understate ... do not offer respect in return.

8. Just in case, begin the tearing down of Rubio right now.

I think many Latinos would vote for him just because he's Latino.

17. Floridians, perhaps. The others? Not the SW...don't know much about Texas, though.

Arizona is waking up to its heritage and I see it at least purple in 2016...maybe 2014???? Natives reconnecting to their ancestral lands is ultimately very powerful and distinct from the refugee issue.

11. Rubio would do better than Romney,

But he'd be a long way from capturing the majority of Latinos.
When elected in 2010, he was riding the crest of teabaggery, and Dem turnout was not only down but split between two candidates. His next election bid will be during a presidential election year, Dem turnout I assume will be higher, and he won't have a 3rd candidate spliting Dem votes. Much more difficult.

14. At debates, Republicans have to stop cheering electrocuting border fences, self-deportation,

and inhumane immigration solutions such as preventing families from staying together who have been here decades. I don't care if their candidate has brown skin whether natural or painted on and has an Hispanic name; he won't get votes if his policies are absolutely repellent to Hispanics.

15. Rubio couldn't survive the racist, xenophobic gauntlet of Republican primaries

Their primary voters are not going to embrace Latinos in four years. Another presidential defeat or two might change that - and that is a big might.
