Obama: What Latino Problem?
CP alum Paul Demko poses this question over at Mindy, citing a 21-state poll of Latino voters.
Demko uses this quick-hit post to get at the running mate issue. Would Hillary Clinton really help Obama among voters where he needs to shore up strength?
This poll's not enough to reach firm conclusions -- just 800 voters were queried, and we don't know in what states the data comes from -- although the results are encouraging for the presumptive nominee.
There underlying issue, of course, is whether the Obama-Clinton ticket would be a dream or a nightmare for the Democrats. I'm undecided on that issue, although it seems I'm substantially more pro-Hillary than many observers. Though I'm just about 60-40 in favor of making Clinton the running mate, I'll try to make an argument in favor of that choice later this week.
