Hispanics not Monolithic

The Miami Herald seems to be surprised to find what should be obvious: Hispanics are not monolithic on their views on social and political issues.

Hispanic voters overwhelmingly support the death penalty, prayer in schools and privatization of Social Security. About half of those polled are also pro-choice on the abortion issue, despite their Roman Catholic background, and support the idea of prohibiting undocumented immigrants from receiving government aid such as food stamps and Medicaid...

All of those nuances make it difficult for Hispanic voters to be targeted as a monolithic voting bloc and market.
