    Tunku Varadarajan ‏@tunkuv Dubya won 40% of the Hispanic vote in 2004. McCain won 31% in 2008. Romney won 21% in 2012. Do the math.

    Yup.

    YES!

    Immediately after Obama speech his family strolls out to hug and kiss him....and Joe Biden pumping his fists and pointing at the President. Great thing about that is everyone has no idea if that was planned or Biden just ran out there

    Well I voted for Obama so in that sense I'm happy. I really don't like politics, but I saw way too many things said by Romney supporters that were flat out lies and a lot of Obama's policies I support (not to mention Obamacare helps my mom out a lot)

    For the Republicans though, I was always under the impression that Romney was kind of seen as the least incompetent of the 3 main names for their primaries. I can say this for a lot of PA residents, this is the second election where a lot of votes went away from the Republicans because of the choice of running mate.

    The fact of the matter is the Republican party has a problem. The candidate that makes it through their primary is at a disadvantage in the national election. They have to go crazy right during the primary then move back to the center in the national. At that point the Democratic party has all kinds of ammunition to use against them.

    The next election four years from now will be interesting. Will the Democrats have to go crazy left during their primary and then move back to the center in the national? I guess it depends on who they put out there. As for the Republicans, they are just going to have to transform their party platform over the next 4 years so they stop disinfranchising the latino vote.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    I think there is little doubt it will be Hillary in four years, though she will have to go through a primary of course.

    The problem in the Republican party is they are doing poorly with young voters, and young voters are showing up at the polls. Also the increasing minority demographic. Exit polls showed most people, Latino or not, agreed with a path to citizenship as well.

    The two lines that won Obama this election- Romney's self deportation line, and Romney's let Detroit fail line. Small issues like this in close states did huge disservice to the campaign.
