Rubio Would Lose Latino Vote to Biden 60 to 28

We have to pass amnesty right now to fill the country with unskilled poor Mexicans who are the Latino demographic least likely under any conceivable set of circumstances to vote Republican.
And even after becoming the champion of amnesty, Marco Rubio would still decisively lose the Latino vote to Joe Biden. What do you call that? De Facto Destructiveness?
In a potential 2016 presidential election matchup, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would beat Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) among Latinos, a poll out Monday shows.
Clinton is the favorite to Rubio 66 percent to 28 percent, the survey from Latino Decisions reports. Rubio also loses in a potential matchup against Vice President Joe Biden 60 percent to 28 percent.
In all the potential 2016 matchups featured in the poll, Clinton and Biden beat former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Rubio handily.
Why is Rubio losing the Latino vote to Biden of all people? He’s not. Democrats are just winning the Latino vote, which they tend to do. Especially the newly organized low income Latino vote.
The biggest determinant for Latino Republican votes was never immigration. It was income. Filling the country with low income Latino voters is a formula for more 60-28 blowouts.
It’s not about amnesty. It’s about class. It’s about welfare. It’s about government employees and social services.
Rubio can talk about his parents until he’s blue in the face, but it doesn’t change the fact that today’s unskilled immigrants are walking into a welfare state designed to suck them in and get them voting Democrat to protect it.
Any talk about winning the Latino vote has to deal with 1. the welfare state and 2. Making the GOP more competitive among low income voters.
Amnesty without points 1 and 2 is just a GOP elites suicide pact.
