McCain told reporters, "everything about our Hispanic voters is tailor-made to the Republican message...I know their patriotism, I know the respect for the family, the advocacy for pro-life, I know the small business aspect of our Hispanic voters."
A quick reality check:
Patriotism: Only 34% of Hispanics eligible for US citizenship choose to take the necessary steps to take itâ€”less than any other immigrant group. Of that group, only a third of Hispanics who are American citizens consider themselves Americans first.
Respect for the Family: Half of Hispanic births in the US are out of wedlock.
Pro Life: Hispanics are 2.7 times more likely to have an abortion than whites.
Small Business: Hispanics make up 15% of the population and only 6.6 percent of all businesses.
