Immigration Not A Top Priority for Hispanic Voters
"Issues related to illegal immigration matter to many Latinos, but they are not their most pressing concern, according to a new survey of the Pew Hispanic Center. In the study, which also found Latinos more optimistic about the direction of the country than other groups, Latinos rated education, jobs and the economy and healthcare as priorities," the LA Times reported.
"The economic recession's disproportional impact on Latinos has been something the Romney campaign has used against Obama in the run-up to the election. Despite this, Latino registered voters have a sunnier attitude about the state of the nation compared to the general public, according to Pew Hispanic. While only 28% of all registered voters said they were 'satisfied with the direction of the nation,' 45% of Latinos expressed such optimism."
