RUSH: Do you know this? The AAA, the American Automobile Association, has been testing electric cars. You know what they found out? They found that an electric car can travel only half as far as advertised in freezing weather. It’s a good thing they found this out before we had a really bad winter. Oh, wait. We have had a really bad winter. They just found this out. Frigid temperatures can reduce the distance an electric car travels by 57%. It’s already not a great distance that they go.
“Latinos are Souring on Obamacare.” This is not the first time we’ve heard of this. This is the third, maybe the fourth time that I have seen polling data like this. “A new poll shows Latinos — a fast-growing and key demographic in American elections — aren’t as fond of Obamacare as they once were. The Pew Research Center poll showed Hispanics are split on whether they approve of [Obamacare], with 47% approving and 47% disapproving.
“The numbers are notable because Latinos have generally been among the health care lawÂ’s chief supporters. Other polls have shown they supported the law by a 2-to-1 margin, and a September 2013 poll, before the lawÂ’s implementation, showed 61% of Hispanics approved of it.” Isn’t that fascinating, that 61% approved it before it was implemented? Now that it’s implemented, that 61% is down to 47%, and it’s falling.
But yet remember we were told for years that once people got to know more about it, the more they would love it? Kathleen Sebelius told us that. Pelosi told us that. I think even The Messiah himself, The One, told us that. (impression) “Well, you know, as we roll it out and people use it, they’re gonna realize how much they like it and how much they’ve missed it and how great it is.” But, instead, the more people know about Obamacare, the more they loathe it.
Again, I hate to bring this up, but it’s a golden opportunity. The Republicans are what? The Republicans are salivating over a connection with Hispanic voters, are they not? The Republicans are out there openly saying they’ll never, ever win the presidency if they don’t really get an increased percentage of the Hispanic vote. The Democrats were the first to tell ’em that, and the Republicans said, “You know what? You’re right!
“We are not gonna ever win again without a lot of Hispanics.” Well, here you go, Republicans. It turns out that Obamacare is your ticket. Obamacare is the connector to you and the Hispanic vote, not amnesty. It’s Obamacare! Do you think they’ll move on it? I hope so, but I think they’re so invested in amnesty now that this would be looked at as a problematic and confusing thing for ’em.
