The Democrats are beside themselves. All the Trump bashing by them and the MSM has hardly caused a dent in the support that Trump and the Republicans have with the Latino community. The simple answer is that those here legally don’t support illegals, especially since they’ve witnessed the growing number of crimes being committed. This latest incident in California where an illegal killed a legal immigrant is not playing well. Most of the MSM are ignoring the facts in what happened.
This from the Washington Post via AP writer. In November’s elections, 32 percent of Latinos voted for Republicans, according to AP VoteCast data. The survey of more than 115,000 midterm voters — including 7,738 Latino voters — was conducted for The Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago. Other surveys also found roughly one-third of Latinos supporting the GOP. Data from the Pew Research Center and from exit polls suggests that a comparable share of about 3 in 10 Latino voters supported Trump in 2016. That tracks the share of Latinos supporting Republicans for the last decade.
This support drives Democrats crazy. Democrats, who say actions like Trump’s family separation policy and his demonetization of an immigrant caravan should drive Latinos out of the GOP. But it doesn’t The left just doesn’t understand that. Trump pointing out illegal immigrants gathering on our border scares everyone.
Democrats wonder why they don’t get the 90-95% of the Latino vote the way they do African Americans. This I picked up from FOX.
Some conservative Latinos say their political leanings make them feel more like a minority than their ethnicity does. Irina Vilariño, 43, a Miami restaurateur and Cuban immigrant, said she had presidential bumper stickers for Sen. John McCain, Mitt Romney and Trump scratched off her car. She said she never suffered from discrimination growing up in a predominantly white south Florida community, “but I remember during the McCain campaign being discriminated against because I supported him.”
In closing, Democrats don’t realize that the Latinos haven’t been bottle fed from cradle to grave the way African Americans are. What say you?
