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."
