Brian Davis is here from Fox News lets you know which way is my new found -- I follow them on Twitter I'm like writing for the now whenever I go out to have been larger back and I.
Blog on fox and with the -- at a moment I really do good -- -- -- concedes this so what extent that the Democrats and yet some of the the campaigning to.
Reelect the president are attacking.
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
And saying that he's not ready to really help out governor Mitt Romney's ticket what what is the argument.
So the yard and it really is obviously speculation is still -- on whether or not he's going to be the number two Romney's camp is looking to see perhaps that.
Already video hammering out I -- I don't personally don't know that for sure I -- that but the thought is obviously.
Perhaps bringing him on the ticket will bring the Latino vote now there's two sides -- -- -- you have somebody like David Axelrod.
Who is on Univision this past weekend and he said quote that having rubio on the ticket would be an insult to the Hispanic community.
Because you said that quote that sort of again out of jail free card for all things in the positions that he's taken those were David Axelrod is worth and -- I.
I think I did see about it yeah I want -- -- a bit just so that you know understand he said that it would be an insult.
Support rubio on the ticket.
What has been the response from the Republican Party to that or or better yet -- -- -- us anything.
So Maria has not -- anything regarding that on in terms of response you know in -- enough we had interview with.
President former attorney general under president George W.
Bush about -- -- Gonzales who spoke.
With Juan Williams I think we actually have.
So -- -- that and a little bit what's that Yucca and his response -- that.
Many Americans and many Republicans say that he is the number one choice to be on the ticket as Romney's running mate.
In part to try to win over the Latino vote is that a flawed strategy I don't think I don't think people are gonna vote for we have -- and -- based company chooses as his -- -- I'm really -- I don't think it's gonna make it gives Hispanic community if -- -- governor Romney's policies and something that -- to simply don't agree with.
Yes they haven't you have a Republican Latino who was saying you know what.
It's actually not going to matter whether or not Marco Rubio -- -- running mate and then you have David Axelrod on the other side saying we know what it is going to matter is going to negatively.
Well -- -- this industry we'll -- is that it does matter mistress right it can hurt you right.
And I don't know that history has shown so much that he can help you but it certainly can hurt you run that is reality but when you look at.
This statistic -- -- -- these words of on the screen.
When that wallet you tell.
Again on us -- we thought we did the possible to the -- was in February during the primaries but we asked the question of whether or not we thought that.
Would Marco Rubio will change -- -- decision on whether or not you're going to support the Republican candidate the time.
And nearly 25%.
Of those we poll of likely Latino voters -- -- yes.
A Marco -- on -- it would actually make me perhaps want to vote for the Republican can't tell me about governor Suzanne working -- Zanuck and all governors and Martinez's sort of been in hiding she hasn't really been out there into the yeah -- well.
Thank you I had no idea sell some -- that's what's happening I mean OK I.
-- I don't go ask her well because it at the time in February were looking at possible -- candidates who we're gonna perhaps in the running mate it's literally Marco Rubio and Susanna Martinez ruling on the short -- is -- Martinez has lost any you know very.
Immigration ideas at home like Romney does and she's she's in New Mexico -- was perhaps the number to go if you you know trying to bring in the Latino vote.
You know -- and yeah.
-- yeah and you know what I don't want to bring race up before 11 o'clock in the war.
I I have to because I feel like it's the elephant -- why -- -- -- to get the black vote you have to go out and find somebody black why isn't there -- get to the Latino vote you have to go out and find somebody.
Who is what's Cano I don't understand that why you know I look at governor -- -- dealing with.
Cross border issues every day I would wonder how popular -- Among -- Fox News Latino dot com visitors.
I don't is this somewhat pandering to you need to do just.
I think -- look I think it's I like to think it's less about.
Being Latino and more about your -- rhetoric and the immigration rhetoric that's the idea yeah -- well.
Poll numbers would suggest that it is I mean those horse and admiration.
Hard courts it is hard line courses depending on whether or not you you and whether -- actually played her everywhere -- the tarmac exactly.
Well it actually mr.
Obama right right but you know immigration rhetoric on either side of the Republican or democratic if if if you're gonna go with that's really what -- decide who -- -- do well he's not actually.
Lets you know like -- pop.
I mean that's that's a good question you'd have to think.
Look I think we didn't really asset in the -- we wanted to make sure we wanted to -- Yeah this -- I want to.
How -- anti Romney and Obama.
We did what we did wrong I'll tell.
70% of Latinos actually you were for Obama and all this was in February and that is 14% for someone -- Democrat on the panel that gap between -- -- it was very -- and we have gotten -- debate going on and -- out right so I -- do it again I just would be curious to signal the idea is right now it's it's really going to be the Jerusalem whether -- not having Latino.
Candidate will actually make a running mate would actually make a difference and Rick Perry and we -- well.
I mean I don't know I'm just throwing out some names of people who were in border states of people.
But that's not even necessary let's think about others you know I'm I'm I'm curious runs I think this -- be African American -- and always makes me scratch my head.
Right or later perhaps looking at numbers -- becomes president Barack Obama present problem as well cover -- rating with the African American community and perhaps looking at that same way if that works for him it might work for us bulletin would -- that's just a thought very I -- I never ran.
But you never know I mean like the Marco Rubio speculation is going to continue all the way -- decision has finally made.
He is starting to actually.
Show his lighter immigration side away from the typical Republican rhetoric -- -- -- shadow detail well he started his own.
You know -- for the DREAM Act right stopped short of actually giving citizenship.
To those to those who have at least served in the -- -- and I'll -- it's not out.
It's a pat it's a specialized threat and that's that's okay sold us out in this is what sort of beating this speculation that's only continuing okay oldest son and Marco Rubio.
Is sort of lightening his immigration rhetoric okay what does that mean is that is that sort of to bring in this Latino vote -- Very much for.
I -- -- We should not Texas governor Rick Perry saying in the debates right here Mitt Romney we're going at -- Bryant that was.
War -- the stance that we were hearing from him.
Right and I think I think maybe it's it's we don't we don't know what's going to happen -- -- perhaps there are those who say.
That Romney would like to go the route of rubio because it'll help.
Sort of help him with hope you've had personal things he said during the primary that we have turned off -- -- it's the other vote.
And yeah Leo -- you'll -- I don't know how -- -- He's.
Mentality is either but he's he's fairly young to be honest with you and the other thing is -- -- -- I mean he's he's a big Florida guy I think now.
The nation is start -- -- test -- reveal what is this Wednesday.
And new look and a swing state like dapper and they'll do anything they can't -- -- -- how we wanted to see it on Fox News Latino.
Regarding this piece and -- I think I think the most important as you can go see right now is our exclusive interview with Juan Williams -- -- -- Williams interviewing I'm sorry mental Gonzales and and we really speak fifteen to twenty minutes we'll have all the different issues as you can imagine from Marco Rubio to SB 1070 and once he thinks.
You know it's like having -- selection.
Very very interest C interview and it's split up in a different clips you can decide what parts you want to use what -- you don't -- -- use.
To some of the many things we're certainly do bosses not watch the whole -- Leo we will we have the whole thing there for -- just wanna you know what sit back and has some popcorn washed when an interview that's really interest on our.
And you said you know this is one of the first times that we've heard Republicans say it really won't matter if you put senator rubio on the tickets not.
If -- agree with with governor Romney's positions that's what's -- manner now that's -- Fascinating all right Fox News Latino dot com it is fabulous.
I cannot already doing it -- on Twitter do you tweaks yes.
No I didn't buy it why aren't you phoned me one I thought maybe you need to do this front and it seemed to knowingly break out away from I think he did all of Bryant had a -- look at chip.
There you are there is strain with you're with your -- -- -- cristina's fund worth Hampshire yes that's like that she'd leave them.
I think -- push back and forth with you want to highlight what you said.
About attracting different both from different people you are right.
You're right when you point to those numbers with African Americans or President Obama I appreciate it and come back and you timers and slaughters all right.
