GOP to cash in on high Hispanic unemployment

Washington – Hispanics, who voted 67% to 31% for Obama in 2008, are likely to change party lines due to high unemployment.

GOP Hispanic conservatives are looking to cash in on that as a motive to change their ways in 2012.

Hispanics rated their likelihood of voting at a solid ten on a scale of one to 10, according to a recent Gallup Poll.

Only 82 percent of white and 75 percent of black voters thus polled indicated a similar level of enthusiasm, and with unemployment standing at a whopping 8.2%, business man Daniel Garza of the Libre Initiative told newsmen the Republicans's “damaged brand” is a selling point among Hispanics.

“I think we're getting to a point where you have to show results, not just rhetoric. Hispanics are just waking up to that,” he said.

No sitting President since the Great Depression has won re-election with an unemployment rate higher than 7.4%.

Hispanic unemployment topped out at 11% in May, up from a 10.3 percent rating in April. The economy added only 69,000 jobs during that period, according to the latest Labor Department figures.
