Why Nevada's Latino vote could make the difference in the 2012 election

Las Vegas (CNN) - A tour outside the casino zone in Las Vegas reveals the Latino influence in Nevada.

The billboards and shops advertising in Spanish anything from Mexican, Venezuelan or Salvadoran food to a relaxing massage are just as prevalent as the iconic neon signs in Las Vegas.

Programming note: GOP presidential candidates next face off at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday, October 18, in the CNN Western Republican Presidential Debate in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    if it were the other way around, you bet that the GOP would spread things out to give them an advantage. Pathetic hypocrites...

    So it is no longer necessary to be a citizen to vote in national elections?

    Nevada's Latinos need to recognize how the Republicans see them as second class citizens. They need to support Democrat candidates who embrace the diversity of American life and do not pander to only the rich, white elite.

    The question is, how many of those Latinos, are LEGAL voters?

    Looks like a prime place to verify legal voting status, to me.

    Why would ANY Hispanic even remotely considering voting for the GOP-Greed Over People that only cares about the Greedy Oil Profits and nothing else, except if you consider that their major jobs agenda is Getting Obama's Presidency.

    Hopefully they see which party isn't hell-bent on deporting every single one of them (here legally or otherwise).

    GW Bush was the best president for Hispanics this country has ever had. Republicans will continue to support Hispanics in the future because we embrace the same moral beliefs of family, hard work, and education.
