Education (and Hillary) and the Latino Vote
According to a survey published in Time magazine (subscription required, article about the survey in El Diario here), education ranks as the top issue for Latino voters nationwide. Immigration is next, with a strong majority of Latinos supporting a guest worker program and opposing vigilante groups like the Minutemen. Interestingly, Hillary Clinton comes in first among potential presidential candidates, trouncing Latinos like Albert Gonzalez. I have posted several times about Hillary's rather complex stance on immigration (she has claimed to be "adamently" against illegal immigrants but supports almost every good bill on immigration in the Senate), and it seems like she is doing a good job of positioning herself on education and immigration issues.
