Prediction: If GOP boycott against UNIVISION continues, Obama administration will gain Latin support he lost earlier this yearby President of Somos A. Bustos on Oct. 05, 2011, under Latino Get Out the Vote for 2012
Just when you think things couldn’t’ get any worse….the GOP Presidential candidates go and insert their foot into their mouths. However, take a look at who began the problem? Yup, Republican Cuban politicians who are already benefiting from Cuban amnesty under the Cuban Adjustment Act as well as government and tax payer funded benefits.
In a letter Monday to the Republican National Committee, U.S. Rep. David Rivera and state Reps. Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Erik Fresen also demanded that Univision apologize and fire its news president, Isaac Lee. We believe asking UNIVISION to stop exposing Sen. Marco Rubio’s hypocrisy would be like asking the Cuban community to boycott Cuban amnesty under the Cuban Adjustment Act.
All Obama administration has to do now in order to gain the Latin support he lost earlier this year is to spend more money with UNIVISION. For the record: UNIVISION is the largest Spanish network our country has ever known.
GOPers who fall prey to what 3% Cuban community will face the consequences in 2012.
President George W. Bush had 44% Hispanic voters in 2004. John McCain’s Latin support in 2008 dwindled to 31% in 2008, and if GOP Presidential candidates continue to not really understand Latin politics….they will be on a path to secure Latin supporters that will be primarily isolated to Florida as they put the entire southwestern Latino population at risk.
It’s simple math. 67% of Latin population are of Mexican descent while only 3% are of Cuban descent.
