Hispanic Voters Also Care About Jobs and Health Care and Such

By

The war between President Obama and Mitt Romney for the affections of Hispanic voters is most often fought on the battlefield of immigration. (That's a metaphor; Immigration would be a ridiculous name for a battlefield.) In fact, sometimes, when we (politicians/pundits/the media) talk about the immigration debate, we act as if it's the only issue that matters. But a new Gallup poll is a good reminder that Hispanic voters care about a lot of other things in addition to immigration laws. Turns out that, like everybody else, Hispanics also prefer to have jobs and earn money and maintain their health. Go figure.
