No it was the Latino vote. Repubs will give up being harsh on immigration and open a big door for Obama to reform that. Then in 4 yrs the white house will be wide open and the latino and female voters will be back in play. Nothing has changed. The vote swung on a few % points.
Repubs can soften on immigration and hit you in 4 yrs with a latino on the ticket.
