Poll: Obama's lead with Latinos jumping to historic high
Source: The Hill
President Obama holds a 73-21 percent lead over Mitt Romney among Latino voters, a new high-water mark for the president.
The new 52-point margin represents a high watermark for Obama in the weekly tracking poll from Latino Decisions, and is a significant jump from the 65-26 percent advantage he held six weeks ago.
Romney has failed to make inroads despite a push at the GOP convention to highlight Hispanic Republicans, while Latino voters who have tuned in during the period shortly before and since the conventions have mostly gravitated towards Obama.
Obama is polling a higher percentage in the poll than the 67 percent of the Latino vote he won four years ago, when GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) won 31 percent, according to exit poll

18. He demanded they bus in supporters for the studio audience, and moaned about the introduction
Mitt Romney's campaign took a hard line with the Spanish-language network Univision, making last-minute demands in the run-up to last week's town hall that helped insure his success in the forum, sources familiar with the broadcast told BuzzFeed.
When the Republican took his place Wednesday night in the first of two back-to-back candidate forums televised on the mega-network, he was greeted by an adoring, raucous crowd that cheered his every word, and booed many of the moderators' questions. The next night, President Obama was treated to stone cold silence from the audience as he was aggressively grilled on his lackluster immigration record.
But after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus, the Romney camp realized there weren't enough sympathetic students to fill the stands on their night — so they told the network and university that if they weren't given an exemption to the students-only rule, they might have to "reschedule."
Apparently, Romney took issue with the anchors beginning the broadcast that way, said Salinas, and he refused to go on stage until they re-taped the introduction. (One Republican present at the taping said Romney "threw a tantrum.")

11. This Is What Happens When Romney Moves To The RIGHT of Gingrich During Primary!
So, unless Romney does a blatant etch and sketch and disavows his opposition to the Dream Act and his insistence on making life so difficult that immigrants that they self-deport:
During Monday night’s GOP presidential debate in Tampa, Fla., Romney was asked how he would address illegal immigration, and said he favored what he called “self-deportation.”
“The answer is self-deportation, which is people decide they can do better by going home because they can’t find work here because they don't have legal documentation to allow them to work here,” Romney said. “We’re not going to round them up.”

19. Nothing worse for a politician than making voters hate you
A coworker that had been a republican die hard for many years is really angry, says that he knows Romney meant Puerto Ricans when he referred to the 47Percent. After I replied I was part of the 47% too because I am close to retirement, he said "NO he meant Puerto Ricans". Well I did not argue, but I bet he is NOT going to vote republican this election and my guess is neither are any of his personal friends & relatives if they believe Romney was talking about them. It's ironic that everyone I know thinks they are part of the 47% except maybe the ditto head and my guess is Rush Limbaugh told his cult like group they are part of the 1% without the money yet; but it will be coming soon.
