Republican political consultants are simply wrong when they claim social issues like marriage hurt their candidates - instead they help them:
As Republicans ponder how to win over Hispanics in future election cycles, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel.
A poll of Illinois Hispanics conducted by pollster Mike McKeon found that a majority shared views generally considered to be sympathetic to the Republican party.
The poll found Hispanics in the conservative camp on social issues in particular. Fifty-one percent said they opposed legalizing gay marriage, compared to just 40 percent who favored legalization. Fifty-six percent called themselves pro-life, while just 33 percent said they were pro-choice. -- The Daily Caller
