The word of the ideologue seems to be more powerful than the word of God when it comes to the growing Latino population. By that, I mean that it seems even Latinos who would be predisposed socially to lean toward the Republican Party can be scared off by those ideologues who persist with their rants that wind up demonizing so many of their ranks.
A new Gallup poll has illustrated that Obama's popularity has sunk among both Latinos and whites (48 percent and 33 percent respectively). There's no doubt the White House is frustrated with the sinking Hispanic numbers. And they've been trying very hard, since the 2012 campaign got underway, to show the Latino community that they care about the issues impacting Latinos.
