Can Romney count on Hispanic entrepreneurs?

New York (CNNMoney) - For some Hispanic entrepreneurs, Mitt Romney forces a tough decision.

As small business owners, they like Romney's call for fewer regulations and lower taxes. But some are turned off by his embrace of hardline Republican Party views on illegal immigration.

    I'm a hispanic business owner and do not believe Romney at all. He wants to make us pay more taxes and 1% pay less.

    The Latino voters are socially conservative. They would have been perfect for the Republican Party. Unfortunately, the party needs poor white voters more, so Republicans have to run against illegal immigration every two years.

    Sure they can just as long as they vote for him but don't remind him or shout too loudly about his polygamist grandaddy and how his father happened to have been born in Mexico!
    Of course lets not forget that he had already hired illegals to work in his yard but HD had to gust rid of them because for pete's sake he is running for president.
    Poor little rich bully bishop there's so much out there showing him for who he really is. A cowardly limp excuse of a man.

    No Romney can't count on Hispanic entrepreneurs. His policies are not geared towards start up small businesses. The clown is only interested in protecting the top 1%. He already revealed his hand during the debate. We all remember that he can't have illegals working on his property because he's running for president for Pete's sake.
    Mitt is so out of touch.

    From what we are being told through media outlets, not only can Mitt Romney win the Hispanic vote, but he's also got the minority vote, the women vote, the Independent vote, AND the Democratic vote leaning his way. Also per the media, we can look for a Mitt Romney landslide come November.

    I have my doubts, of course, but one wonders why the media is circulating Team Romney's bogus talking points so early in the general .... ? It's beginning to look like 2008 all over again. Including dragging both Clinton's into the ring - neither of whom are running.

    why count on less regulations and lower taxes if you're going to face harrassment by every redneck and billy-jo-bob that thinks you "don't look right" and get stopped and searched by the police for the same reason?

    Adelante with Pres. Obama, not backwards with Romney.

    He cannot count on Hispanic entrpreneurs or any other Hispanic to vote for him. This vote will go big time to Obama irrespective of any flip flop Romney may pull out of the hat.
    It's called Common sense.... trying to say Romney can increase his share of this vote tends to make one think why CNN keeps asking this question.... its answer is a no brainer!!
