A more important thing to remember is that the 31 percent of Hispanics who voted for Prop 187 is basically equivalent to the percentage of Hispanics in California who vote for the GOP. In 1990, Wilson won 33 percent of the Hispanic vote in his successful first bid for governor. Additionally, during the presidential elections of the 1980s, Republican candidates never performed particularly well among Hispanics in the state, with George . Bush only earning 25 percent of the Hispanic vote in 1992. In 2012, Mitt Romney won 27 percent of the Hispanic vote.
