[size=4]Gun control tops Latino concerns[/size=4] Survey also details views on education and abortion. By Douglas Haberman / doug.haberman@latimes.com
Latino voters favor gun-control measures by a wide margin and hold other views that show them largely aligned with the Democratic Party on domestic policy issues, a survey recently released by the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute found. Gun control was a more important issue to the Latino voters surveyed than abortion or school vouchers, said Harry Pachon, president of the institute, which is at Claremont Graduate University and is also affiliated with Columbia University. "It makes sense," he said. "Where are crimes committed? They're committed in the ghettos and the barrios." The institute conducted a telephone survey of 2,011 Latino registered voters in five states -- California, Florida, Illinois, New York and Texas -- in October 2000. "It's the real voters and what they think," Pachon said. The institute undertook the survey "to get an accurate barometer of what the community thinks," which can be used in place of conjecture by pundits, he said. Of the Latino voters surveyed, 64.7% favored gun-control legislation. But only 29.1% backed school vouchers. Both of those findings put them in the Democratic camp.

I guess you can take the man out of the third world, but you can't take the third world out of the man. These people are so use to oppressive and corrupt governments that they want to import their way of thinking to the U.S! Pathetic for them. Dangerous for the rest of us!

Yeah, and just how many of these 2,000 or so surveyed lived in the country, and how many in the bigger cities. Plenty of room for question with these pollsters. Could their sample stand up under scrutiny?

... Sure! "Sinolan Cowboys" don't want any resistance.

Maybe it is cause they come from a country with gun control. I love that Simon said he would consider putting the national guard on the border and the paper said it would hurt him with the latino vote. Like he had a chance anyhow. Same reason I hate it when Bush panders to the latinos. Losing your base for people who aren't going to vote for you anyhow.

Does California have a clue of what they want? If it was not for guns they would still be Mexico. Hell give it back to Mexico as far as I am concerned. No offence to the good realistic folks that live there, but if that is the way that they want to be then keep it to them F##KING SELVES.... My state is beginning to look like a friggin Liberals state and I tell you one thing if it gets to that point I am living in a different state that does not have its head up its ass....

Just one more reason to deploy the military on our southern borders. Hey, while we're adopting Mexico's people, why don't we adopt Mexico's laws and form of government and really send the country down the $hitter?

Agree with mattja: The only ones who will have the guns will be the gangbangers. What a country.
