Yup, both Ronald Reagan and G.W. Bush managed to get over 35% of the Hispanic vote in each of their elections. Mitt Romney last time got only 27%. Doesn't mean Republicans need to pander, but simply not offending the third of Hispanics who might be voting for them is probably a good idea. One reason I think Rubio is popular as a 2nd choice; maybe not experienced enough for the top of the ticket yet, but I think a lot of people are liking him for VP.
