Immigration Isn't Everything: The Latino Vote Will Not Be Blindly Cast
CHICAGO -- As Latinos are projected to make up nearly nine percent of the electorate in November--a 26 percent increase over the 2008 figure, according to NALEO--the buzz around the power of the Latino vote is warranted.

There is the notion that the Latino vote will boil down to a lesser-of-two-evils choice between an incumbent who supposedly hasn't kept his immigration-related campaign promises or a candidate representing a party whose talk of electric fences and self-deportation has alienated many voters. This isn't just simplistic, it's insulting!
