More bad demographic news for the GOP: FL Cuban-Americans slipping away

Miami Herald:

President Obama nearly won the solidly Republican Cuban-American vote in Florida and rolled up huge margins with every other Hispanic group in the state, according to an exit poll performed by a firm that also worked for his campaign.

Obama actually won Cuban-Americans who voted on Election Day itself, taking 53 percent of their vote compared to 47 percent for Republican Mitt Romney, who built up a lead among those who cast absentee and early in-person ballots, according to the survey of 4,866 voters conducted by Bendixen & Amandi International.

Romney narrowly carried Cuban-Americans, 52-48 percent, which is a decrease for Republicans when compared to 2008.

“Obama is picking the Republican lock in Florida,” Fernand Amandi said, noting that Hispanics are Florida’s fastest-growing segment of the electorate.

Of course, the Republican response to this in line with the fourth stage of conservative grief -- i.e., denial. Not very helpful in dealing with their problem. You'd think Tuesday would've taught them a little lesson about poopooing polling. But of course, these are modern conservatives we're talking about here. They don't do learning lessons.
