GOP's Hispanic Problem

The Public Religion Research Institute has a wonderful graph that indicates the problem the Republicans have with Hispanic voters. When asked how they would describe the Republican Party, only 11 percent used positive adjectives. 42 percent, chose neutral terms. The remainder, 47 percent, chose negative terms such as "rich, corporate" (15 percent), "racist, intolerant, anti-immigrant," (11 percent) "old-fashioned, out of touch," (5 percent) and "obstructionist," (3 percent). Those are not the kinds of numbers youo want with the fastest growing demographic in the electorate.
