Did Kobach connection cost Romney the election?

Hispanic voters – especially in states such as Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico – were a key reason why President Obama was re-elected. Not only did more Hispanics vote this year than in 2008, but exit polls indicated that a higher percentage of them voted for Obama than four years ago. No doubt Mitt Romney regrets his decision during the GOP primary to embrace Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (in photo) and his policy of “self-deportation.” The GOP also should rethink its hard-line stances on immigration if it doesn’t want to keep losing national elections.
