The Christian Post understands the political risks 2012 GOP Candidates are taking with Hispanic voteThursday, October 6th, 2011
The Christian Post understands the political risks the GOP Presidential Candidates are considering when they are wanting to boycott UNIVISION over Senator Marco Rubio. Marco Rubio has fractured relationships between Cubans (consists of 3% of total Hispanic population) and the largest Hispanic ethnic group (those of Mexican descent accounting for almost 70% of Hispanic population).
From the Christian Post:
The candidates who are boycotting Univision are “committing Hispanic political suicide,” Blase said. “Univision is the number-one Spanish network in the nation,” and “the lifeline of Hispanic media.”
Blase said Somos Republicans was already upset with Rubio for saying that he does not support “amnesty” for illegal immigrants, because, as a Cuban-American, his family has already benefited from an amnesty-like government program.
Republican candidates who support the boycott, “are trying to appease the Cuban-American population” at the expense of the rest of the Latino community, Blase said.
“Do they want to go after the 3 percent (Cuban-American population, prominent in Florida) or do they want to go after the 70 to 75 percent (Mexican-American population, prominent in the Southwest)? That is what I see taking place with their moronic move, fighting Univision,” Blase said.
