2. With a little time, they ought to mean a sea change in Texas and Florida.

Perhaps it won't happen this election, but the demographics trend a certain way and that means a wake-up call to FL and TX.

4. Keep in mind...

that a good chunk of that 21% for Romney consists of Cuban immigrants that are concentrated primarily in Florida. I would think that means our margins are even greater in swing states like Nevada and Colorado that have larger populations of Central American immigrants. This also bodes well for Carmona in Arizona...I would be giddy if we managed to flip Jon Kyle's seat blue. It comes doen to GOTV efforts...looking forward to doing my part next Tuesday.
