Perhaps this is beating a dead horse, but a team of political scientists has now validated my contention from last November that the national exit poll's claim that Bush won 44 percent of the Hispanic vote was exaggerated. A new press release from the American Political Science Association announces:
"Latino voters likely did not support President Bush's re-election in the record numbers two national exit polls reported after the November election. So claims a research team comprised of political scientists David Leal (University of Texas-Austin), Matt Barreto (University of California-Irvine), Jongho Lee (Tomás Rivera Policy Institute), and Rodolfo de la Garza (Columbia University). The findings appear in an article entitled 'The Latino Vote in the 2004 Election' published in the January issue of PS: Political Science and Politics, a journal of the American Political Science Association."
I'm a former member of "Free" Republic who lasted all of three weeks in March of 2001. I was booted for—you guessed it, starting threads about the immivasion. My crime was the worst of all, I posted columns by Dr. Francis.
They always drew overwhelmingly favorable comment before they were yanked by Robinson and company.
Here's a link to the original thread in memory of Dr. Francis that was recently pulled on "Free" Republic. I would appreciate if you could post a link to it, maybe in your blog, so others may see just how nasty the FROBL [Free Republic Open Borders Lobby] and the neocons can truly be, for what they wrote to me and others is sheer nastiness. I happily note that most of the people who posted had kind words in memory and rebukes for the louts. I wish this to be a small tribute in honor of a brilliant man and a great patriot.
The owner of "Original Dissent" was kind enough to allow it to be reposted there in full.
While I don't agree with some of the comments on that website, I will say it is a veritable oasis in a desert of ignorance when it comes to the "National Question."
