Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

It's the Hispanics, stupid

The Republican Party have tacked to the right on all manner of social and economic issues in recent years. As a result their support base has narrowed to older, white, male voters in the south and in rural areas. The Democrats have fought hard to won over the young, minority voters and women. In terms of demographics, the Democrats are on to a winner as population growth is coming from immigration, so long as this coalition turns out to vote. The National Journal noted that the election will come down to how much of the core support can be siphoned off to the opponent. Not all women vote Democrat and not all whites vote Republican! If Obama can get 40% of the white vote and 80% of the minority vote, he should be okay.
