Steve King's Hysterical Hispanic Vote Misinformation
Apparently, Rep. Steve King can't read an exit poll. King said Republicans lost the Hispanic vote by a "marginal" amount. Got that kids.
"We saw a marginal loss of the Hispanic vote, so people say we can't build a coalition again unless we make those accommodations," he said. "We should look at what happened with the conservatives who stay home. What happened with the biggest gender gap in history? What happened with the Ron Paul coalition, and the libertarians?"The Pew Research Center found that President Obama won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote. Romney only received 27 percent of the Hispanic vote. King has an interesting definition of marginal. Of course, King is an anti-immigration tea party Republican in a red district. What is good for King's political prospects doesn't hold true for the rest of the GOP.
