Romney’s cautious comments on the court decision underscored his discomfort with a topic that squeezes him between conflicting goals.
He needs to fire up his conservative base, where anti-immigration sentiments run strong. But Romney also needs to reduce Obama’s sizeable advantage among Hispanic voters.
