Today, we see this at The NY Times:
"More than 21 million Latinos will be eligible to vote this November, clustered in pockets from Colorado to Florida, as well as in less obvious states like Illinois, Iowa, North Carolina and Virginia.
I'm sure that there are many reasons behind electoral apathy. However, here is my explanation: Hispanos invested a lot in Pres BO and he has done nothing.
He failed to keep a big campaign promise about immigration reform despite having 60 votes in the US Senate and large majorities in the US House. We also remind you that Pres BO still has a 53-47 majority in the US Senate.
To make matter worst, we have 11% unemployment in Hispanic communities.
Last, but not least, he insults the voters' intelligence with "5 de Mayo" speeches never followed by a proposal to Congress.
Do you understand why so many Hispanics are just frustrated with the political system?
