Latino support for GOP plunges in Arizona
By Cameron Joseph - 10/10/12 08:58 AM ET

Latino support for Republican candidates in Arizona has taken a nosedive, according to a new poll conducted by Latino Decisions for the liberal immigration group America's Voice.

President Obama leads Mitt Romney by a whopping 80 percent to 14 among Latino registered voters in the poll, the first comprehensive look at Latino voters in the state this election.

That's a huge spike from the 56 to 41 percent edge he had over home-state Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) with Latino voters four years ago.

That spike in Arizona Latino support of Democrats is more dramatic than nationwide trends showing Obama leading Romney by a wider margin than he did against McCain four years ago. Hispanics are a fast-growing population both in the state and nationally and are expected to make up nearly one-fifth of the Arizona electorate this November.

8. Gee, I wonder why.

Might have something to with why I carry a passport at all times, even though I'm not planning to go abroad.

11. I might get a new bumper sticker:

"I'm Hispanic and I Breed." Damn right. The growth of Hispanics in Arizona will be enough to tip it blue in another few elections cycles. I just wish more of us voted down here in Texas; it would already be blue. But, I've got seven (count 'em, SEVEN) newly minted grand nephews, nieces and cousins hitting the voting booths that came of age since the last election cycle. The younger generation seems a bit more politically activist than some of our last. Actually, I'm past breeding, but I've left reinforcements who've taken to the task enthusiastically.
