Dwindling GOP Hispanic Vote May Cost McCain, Says Liberal Strategist

(CNSNews.com) - Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) may lose the presidential election if he fails to win as many Hispanic votes as George W. Bush did, says Simon Rosenberg, who is president of the liberal New Democratic Network (NDN) and a veteran of the Dukakis and Clinton presidential campaigns.

Rosenberg, speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, said that Republicans led by George W. Bush in 2000 were able to win the general election by capturing a record 40 percent of the Hispanic vote. In 2008, however, they are at risk of losing those votes to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), he said.
