Trade NM and AZ for the Northeastern states and you have a map of who wouldn't want to be part of Reconquista.

The Hispanic and Latino American proportion of population in the United States in 2010
over laid with the Mexican–American border of 1836
Okay.... add Nevada, Utah and that square one.

edit:
A quirk in the Electoral College is the electors not being required to follow the popular vote within their state.

Compare with the superdelegates in the Democratic party. They aren't required to follow the popular vote within their state. Just in case, you know, We the People make the 'wrong' choice.

That's how you get Bernie Sanders getting 70% of the vote in Hawaii and only getting one of four electoral votes in the primary.
