    what is actually being discussed is youth vs. age as opposed to Latino vs. White. After one generation, Latinos consider themselves, rightly, Americans. Their opinions depend on ethnicity to the same extent Polish or Irish or Lithuanians' do. If a candidate comes right out and patronises a certain segment of the population, they get pissed off.
    On the other hand the youth vote tends to be fiscally pragmatic and socially liberal in comparison with the standard 45 year old wealthy white male from Utah. That's just the way it is. Sorry Repubs, you live in a bubble.
