You bring up a good point. Ideologically, Hispanics appear to be conservative, and for that I have to think that it is due to their Catholic
background. But perhaps this is only for the two wedge issues (abortion and gay rights).
However, when it comes to the law not cracking down on relatives who are here illegally, and the freebies a left-leaning society has made possible
(welfare, food stamps, WIC, amnesty for illegals, not checking to see if a person is legal to work here in the US, and seemingly free medical care),
they are decidedly democratic, or left-wing, in nature.
This is why the republicans cannot tap that vote. They may agree with a republican on a few issues, but when it comes to the free bread and butter,
they gotta stick with the democrats.
