The -- now that's.
In 2008 President Obama won 67%.
Of the Hispanic vote John McCain 31%.
To -- is the question.
With unemployment still -- eight point 3% will Latinos still support -- -- -- in November to the same degree.
Genesis of the -- from the American action that -- is here with -- in New York Jennifer -- the program.
There left the -- if pres Obama got 67% last time around what does he get this time.
I think it's going to be definitely lower and it remains to be seen but he has a string of broken promises in Hispanic community how much lower than 67%.
-- to figure that it's split 5050.
Well we've seen.
I we've -- numbers around 60% or lower because the Hispanic communities is very disappointed with the president they weren't exactly incur debt.
Enthusiastic about voting for him last time but because -- so heavily campaign and Hispanic community I immigration and bringing jobs back they voted for him but.
-- -- what's the big issue to Hispanic voters is it jobs -- 8% unemployment which is a negative for President Obama or is it immigration.
What the president has allowed illegals on document of people to stay its entrance and try to treat -- very okay would that would that group what's the bigger issue.
All polls all polls including a -- the Hispanic leadership network did shows that.
Jobs and economy number one -- you point eight point three.
Unemployment it's almost 11% in the Hispanic community right now Hispanics are are cannot find jobs and it within the youth.
It's almost 30% unemployment now so that is that is what people are looking at how they gonna feed their families and keep the roof over their head that's what they're so what's important to them don't.
Also deportations are up to it right and that's that hurting you know -- Hispanics as well.
And also I think that the number of people on the is -- you know -- the -- not up under President Obama Clinton and Obama.
People at some kind of restraints on get taking people out of the country if they would if they can say I was still visible -- -- more younger -- children of illegal immigrants but.
You know -- you know for.
The -- the one thing I do want -- -- real quick.
Our our the Hispanics willing for -- they opened for tough love.
In other words and are they gonna accept the victim card or -- they open to saying yeah I'm open to the talents of getting educated at -- open to the challenge to being a parent not having kids twelve kids with twelve different women.
I hope of this particular challenge and can a Republican talk to them that way in a strain on its way.
Well I think the Republicans absolutely can talk to -- in 2004 President Bush who are worked fork -- 44% of the Hispanic vote.
And so Hispanics are open to listening to those issues even of Hispanics a trend -- To vote are to be registered to vote as Democrats when you talk about actual issues that concern about national security.
On government spending on taxes and religion and religion and back to the point though.
-- -- can't have it both ways he promised if he's -- get immigration reform which he didn't do even though that if veto proof congress.
The first two years of his presidency and -- the highest deportations of any president in history so which is it.
Does he like immigrants -- does not like immigrants he can't have a book.
If you are essentially conservative you're right to -- to political century Centre right yes where you're coming from a you support president and so you support governor Romney in this election well Hispanic leadership network does not endorse but we.
