Analysis: Rubio wins few Latins for Romney

Posted Aug 5, 2012 by Dennis Joyce

Casey A. Klofstad, an associate professor of politics at the University of Miami, makes the case that whatever else it accomplishes, selecting Marco Rubio as a running mate won’t do much to swing Latino voters to Mitt Romney.

Rubio is big with Cuban-Americans in Florida, all right, Klofstad notes, in an analysis of new registered-voter surveys from Latino Decisions.

But outside Florida, he concludes, not so much:

“The vocal Cuban American minority in Florida aside, most Latinos in and outside of Florida are not enthused about a Rubio candidacy, both in general and when it comes to the specific issue of immigration.”
