This Time Magazine cover story focuses on the most inane political event I've ever seen as a cover story in a national magazine: a city council election in Phoenix!
We were warned over and over that Romney's belief in enforcing the immigration law would cost him Hispanic votes, especially in the Florida primary, because Florida has a lot of Hispanic Republicans.
This turned out not be the the case--Roy Beck of NumbersUSA has the details.
