AUSTIN, Texas (RNS) Hot button issues with conservative Christians, such as abortion and same-sex marriage, are not as critical to Hispanics. Topping their list of critical issues: jobs and unemployment, health care costs and the quality of public schools.


  1. That’s because they are generally immigrants from marxist/socialist countries. They and the democrats will succeed in turning the USA into a marxist crap hole just like the rest of mexico, central/south america

  2. “Hispanics like the Democrat Party.”

    And in related news:

    “Scientists report that water is wet.”

    “University study concludes that the sky is blue.”


    “Most agree that fire burns.”

  3. I am not sure this is accurate. Republicans reflect the views of most of us. We are many Catholics but mostly Christians. We need to work and this is a bad time for jobs because of Democarts. They believe in abortion no matter how big the baby is, this is horrible.

  4. Every survey taken in recent years demonstrates that a large majority of Americans support what are usually called conservative values. The problem lies in our politics: we have two political parties that are essentially liberal, with one of them pushing “liberal” values at only a slightly slower pace than the other party. We need only look at the legislative record during the GW Bush administration to see that this is true. Until we have a political party that is an alternative to liberalism, the voters will have no real choice at the polls and we will continue on a wreckless path. That is why it is important that meaningful reform come within the GOP. The country deserves the chance to make a real choice between a secular-socialist state and one called for by our Constitution.

  5. Jobs and healthcare costs are more important to Hispanics than are many of the so-called hot-button issues. Hispanics are largely Democrat at the polls.
    This, once again, points out what is charitably referred to as “cognitive dissonance” among Democrats and liberals in general. The salvation is in the Democrat Party–which happens to be the one that has been in control of government for the past five years, cannot seem to improve employment stats, and has given us a healthcare program that demonstrably will cost everyone far more than we were told we could expect–in what was a deliberate attempt at deception in the first place by those running the show.
