Fuzzy Math, Fuzzier Philosophy Plagues GOP Latino Outreach

Bill Christofferson, blogging as Xoff, examines some recent punditry by Perfecto Rivera, a GOP figure in Milwaukee and Wisconsin Republican circles.

Rivera said that Mark Green would have beaten Jim Doyle in the 2006 gubernatorial election if only a small number of additional Latinos had voted Republican.

Christofferson points out the statistical problems with Rivera's analysis.

And then explains that with its Draconian approach to immigration reform, the GOP's ability to win elections with Latino support won't improve if a handful of additional voters become Republicans.
