It's immigration, stupid, say Latino voters in Nevada

(CNN) – Marlene Monteolivo was a Democrat for many years, then a Republican. Now she's registered as a nonpartisan voter in Nevada who wants to support a candidate who will make the economy better.

The Colombia native, who works for a Las Vegas social services agency, says she's leaning toward GOP challenger Mitt Romney. She likes his business sensibilities.

    It sounds like Ms. Monteolivo is going against what's in her best interest. She like Willard's business sensibilities? Really? She must have not seen the "Harvest" video yet. Willard's against the DREAM Act. I guess she hasn't heard of "self deportation."

    i guess you missed when romney legitimized the Presidents plan, "The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid," Romney said

    Aw Yes,
    It is a choice between Personal Responsibility and the Nanny State. I gather some of you, all of you,? are in favor of the Nanny State? Sounds like this lady has come in out of the cold. But, if you need a baby sitter then the Nanny State is for you. I don't know it there will be enough to go around if you don't work and you may be left out. Aw, well. You voted for it.

    She works for a "social service agency", I hope it's not a State social service agency which is on Romney and the GOP's hit list of "less government".

    Yes, it IS the economy, and yes, Obama has totally failed in that regard.

    Worse, Obama and the Democratic Party, are seeking to take over America, with a socialist dictatorship.

    "Obama and the Democratic Party, are seeking to take over America, with a socialist dictatorship."

    Yes, and everyone, including you, will be forced at gunpoint to learn the proper use of commas. Resistence is futile.
