Winning Hispanic Vote Isn't Enough for Republicans

Byron York notes that Mitt Romney would have had to win an astonishing 73% of the Hispanic vote to prevail in the 2012 presidential election which "suggests that Romney, and Republicans, had bigger problems than Hispanic voters."

"The most serious of those problems was that Romney was not able to connect with white voters who were so turned off by the campaign that they abandoned the GOP and in many cases stayed away from the polls altogether. Recent reports suggest as many as 5 million white voters simply stayed home on Election Day. If they had voted at the same rate they did in 2004, even with the demographic changes since then, Romney would have won."
