Default ??? More hispanics -> Less Republicans in Office (National) ???

Is a greater proportion of hispanics in the electorate as much of a problem for republicans as is commonly advertised? Thanks to our electoral college and the existence of the senate any analysis that lacks the resolution to look at this at the state level is of little value.

Now maybe I'm wrong, but isn't the states with the largest increases in the hispanic population either states that are already heavily democratic (california) or are states that are so staunchly Republican (texas) that an increase of of hispanics up to ten or twenty percent is unlikely to flip the state?

I don't see, at least in the short term i.e. the next forty years, why the southwest becoming more brown should change very much at the national level.
