Not sure who the next president of the USA will be but the next VP will be hispanic most likely


The republicans are rightfully in trouble with the hispanic voters for their ridiculous behavior with respect to immigration.  The only way a republican nominee would have a chance to become president is if they could split the hispanic vote.  Unless they make a major change in their objection to comprehensive immigration reform, the only way they could do this is to nominate a hispanic for president or vice president.  It is doubtful that there is a hispanic candidate that could make it through the republican primaries to become that party’s nominee.  But I can well imagine that the VP candidate could be hispanic and maybe even a female hispanic.

So the way for the Democrats to neutralize this strategy would be for them to nominate a hispanic for vice president too.

  1. I think you are correct about the importance of the Hispanic vote and I expect that Marco Rubio, the junior Republican Senator from Florida, will be on the ticket. There is a complication if Jeb Bush is the nominee, however, because then there would be two Floridians and they will have to choose someone else as the VP.
    I don’t think the Democrats have to worry about the immigration issue, however, instead the lackluster economy and disenchantment with Obama should be their principal concern.
