I wish to ditto Peter Robinson’s objections to Rick’s aversion to Republican attempts to attract the Hispanic vote. If you re-run every California election going back to 1960 with today’s demographic and vote split, Republicans lose them all–both Governor Reagan’s two elections and all the presidential elections that Republicans won through 1988.

Reagan’s pollster Richard Wirthlin has gone further and suggested that what has happened in California is going to happen nationally unless Republicans compete better for the Hispanic vote. It is not a matter of obsession; it is a matter of necessity.
