I think the author of this article had some really insightful opinions on how Latino voters effected the outcome of this past election race. This article also promoted social capital by drawing criticism to both parties based on their political agendas. He mentioned how republicans are staunchly against immigrations, which isn't a surprise. Despite candidates like Meg Whitman spending millions on trying to draw the Latino vote, the Latino community would not be deceived. He also focuses on the challenges that democrats face when it comes to immigration. Since they don't want to loose their control of what seats in the House that they have left, Democrats tend to not really acknowledge a particular stance. This gives a interesting insight on what stance Latino voters took with them when they went to the polls. It shares valuable insight that is meat to reach across many different communities, from Dem to Rep.
