Latino voters in California still reluctant to embrace GOP candidates, poll shows
Los Angeles Times ^ | September 27, 2010 | By Cathleen Decker

Posted on 09/27/2010 6:02:31 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Latino voters, who have helped to propel California's leftward political swing over recent years, remain reluctant to embrace Republican candidates as the November general election nears, a new Los Angeles Times/USC poll shows.

Registered voters who identified themselves as Latino backed Democrat Jerry Brown by a 19-point margin over Republican Meg Whitman in the race for governor.

In the race for U.S. Senate, incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer held a 38-point lead over Republican Carly Fiorina among registered Latino voters, five times the lead she held among white voters.

To allow a more precise look at this key voter group, the new poll, sponsored by The Times and the USC College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences, supplemented its sample of registered California voters by interviewing 400 Latino registered voters in either English or Spanish.

The poll did not directly test the effect of their immigration stances on Whitman and Fiorina, but the results on other questions suggested the issue is significant. In both races, Latinos gave Democrats an advantage in handling immigration by at least 20 points, higher than for all other issues except healthcare.

This is the first time I saw Boxer over 50%. That’s not good.

“incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer held a 38-point lead over Republican Carly Fiorina among registered Latino voters, five times the lead she held among white voters”.

...that sums up the rush to amnesty pretty well. Make illegals legal and the white vote would be meaningless.

Non-issue. The word “Dem” is basically hard-coded into their latino DNA.

Latinos (and Blacks) are in it for the handouts. Forget them.

Whites are just stupid.

How can this be??? Our good friend Krybaby Karl said we should let the illegals in so they will like and appreciate the GOP and vote accordingly!

Thanks for nothing.

This is a LA SLImes /USC push poll folks .So the Slime runs a follow up story so they can spread their push poll one more time so they spread panic and depression amongst the GOP voters .
How ,many time has this Dem party operation do the same thing and people still far fore it !
Does anyone have a memory here ???

The LA Slimes cooked up non stop openly fraudulent polls about Arnold before the recall vote.

The LA Slimes EDITOR was caught by the LA Weekly staff reporter on a tour screaming “ Get me all the dirt on Arnold NOW” and he proceed to issue another phony poll on Arnold being behind.

ITS PUSH POLL Time for the Dem party media !

Another view would be that a significant minority of Latinos vote Republican. A 19 point lead among Latinos for B*tcher is not all that impressive.

Lots of poor and uneducated people believe that the government needs to ‘do something’ to solve their problems.

It rarely occurs to them that what government needs to do is get out of the way.

Often the Libs I talk to are just short-sighted. They see the long term deliterious effects of lib policies once they are spelled out to them, but they want a fix for their problem now without regard to the unintended consequences...

Reagan said it well when he said that the planners plan, and the more the planner’s plans fail, the more the planners plan...

I think if we get that word out better more folks, regardless of their demographics will come along.

Just did a cynical write-up on that idea ~ which would get this thread wiped clean if I posted it.

It's sufficient to say that the typical Latino voters who grew up Culturally Mexican are incapable of ever understanding freedom.

They have to break out of that shell and cycle of dependency.

You can bet that most Latinos in California have relatives that are illegals. Most illegals may come over for a job, but once here it is near impossible for them to resist the politics of envy when they are told by Democrats that the rich gringos were given everything they have (Democrats say tax cuts are the president giving us money) or stole it from them. And when they have kids here and all the free services are shown to them they are not voting for the right to take a low paying job.

California is insane, look at the budget. Look at how they handleed electricity prices. A perfect example of what not to be.

Don’t forget Dumbo hired radical communist Dolores Huerta to speak to public school children who was recently taped saying to children that, “Republicans hate Mexicans.”

This easy to explain: the old myth that the Democrats watch after the poor, and the GOP caters to the wealthy.

>>> Latino voters in California still reluctant to embrace GOP candidates, poll shows

You don’t need a poll to know that. All you need to do is listen to which side has the people who loudly use “Juan” as an epithet.

>>> Latinos (and Blacks) are in it for the handouts. Forget them.

And such.

You work hard enough at obnoxiously pushing people away from your side, they tend to take you at your word. Why wouldn’t they.

Demonrats have made it illegal to ask. You can also register without proof of citizenship.

the la slimes push poll was cooked up to promote another talking point which is “ see the evil gop gringos are losing so get out in vote against them ... see all the other latins hate gop too so vote right .... blah...”

THis was a well cooked up push poll which was meant to promote anmesty and GOP hatred all in one nice package.

You don't have to push them away. No handouts, no Black votes and few Latino votes. It isn't racial from our side but it is from theirs because they stick together to get what they want and replace the mostly White taxpaying population (except for their rich White Democrat puppet-masters.) Even Blacks and Latinos who work stick together with those who don't because family and race comes first.

Whites have been lied to in order to divide them. You aren't going to divide Blacks and Latinos because they know what they want and part of that is a Black and Latino America paid for by somebody else until there isn't anybody else. Whites are too f*ing stupid, fat and politically lazy to stick together and you're dreaming.

Working Latinos and Blacks will get sick of it but they won't join us. They'll just quit and this country will be just another Afro-Mexico s*hole run by a handful of super-rich landlords (White, but it won't be you and me and the Blacks and Latinos won't be living next door to them, so their White color won't bother,) just the way they like it.

If I'm wrong in 20 years, I'll be happy to eat this post.

Let them STAY on the ‘RAT Plantation and STAY poor.

If they can’t add two + two and get the right answer, what makes anyone think he can use “reason” with them.

If you want to know where the ‘RAT voting blocs are in any given area, look in the poor sections.

They never give up voting ‘RAT because of the “promises”, even though they never materialize.

They say that the definition of insanity to to keep doing the same thing over and over and over, each time expecting to get a different result.

It’s more like the definition of bovine stupidity.

There is a huge difference between Hispanics that are Protestant, and those that are Catholic, when it comes to being Americanized and conservative.
