african americans are also majority social conservative, but they constantly vote democrat for economic reasons. The democrats play up the entitlement mentality in the black community

I am also Latino and Conservative. I grew up in a family that is all democrats. I am also Catholic. I believe it was my Catholic upbringing that hepled shape my Conservative views.

I was in high school when I started questioning my family on their political views. I understood that I could not be Catholic and Democrat because of abortion. I also hated Jimmy Carter and beleived Ronald Reagan was our best hope.
Then I enlisted in the Marine Corps. My 22 years of service cemented my conservative beliefs.

So if my last name is French, am I a “Franco”? How about a German or Russian last name.

A lot of what we call Hispanic voting is actually tied to religion, In 2004 George Bush got 56% of the Protestant Hispanic vote, in 2008, against the Obama tsunami, McCain still got 48% of the Protestant Hispanic vote. The Catholic Hispanic vote is a pretty consistent 33% Republican vote.

According to the Catholic News Agency, “Latino Catholics and those without religion are most likely to prefer the Democratic Party, while the non-Catholic Christians prefer the Republican Party.”
