“A Republican probably can’t win without about 40 percent, minimum, of the Hispanic and Latino vote.”
You’ve heard that many times from America’s Voice. Now, it’s coming from a leading political pundit, Larry Sabato:
As with many issues, Romney’s stance on immigration during this election seems to differ from positions he’s taken in the past. In 2006, while governor, Romney had said, “I don’t believe in rounding up 11 million people and forcing them at gunpoint from our country.” But his campaign maintains the position is consistent—that Romney believes illegal immigrants should return home before starting down the path to U.S. citizenship.
So why might this haunt Romney in the general election?
