Skip to comments.Latino voters in California still reluctant to embrace GOP candidates, poll shows
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.

Let’s have a look at those voter registrations, please....
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.
It’s not good.......but it’s not TRUE.
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.
Exactly. It’s ‘what will the gringos give us for free?”
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.
I think all these recent polls in California are propaganda polls.
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.
How long will it take the Black and Latino Communists to drain every penny from the USA productive class?
More proof of how accurate that old saying is...”when robbing Peter to pay Paul,one can always depend on Paul’s cooperation”.
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.
Dont 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.
You work hard enough at obnoxiously pushing people away from your side, they tend to take you at your word. Why wouldn’t they.
All the more reason the border should’ve been sealed decades ago.
What a shocker!
In California, you don’t even have to show ID to vote.
I left California 4 years ago, as I knew it would collapse
under the weight of illegasl immigrant mooches, and white collar unions.
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.
Illegal invaders do not support those that want our LAWS ENFORCED.
the white collar unions are here are irrational and dangerous element.
you are very right and we are leaving once my contract is up.
they mean mexicans..or faux mexicans.
Cannot group mexicans in with Latins. Its been tried and the Latins dont want them.
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.

These people are useless they destroy where ever they squat.
There is a huge difference between Hispanics that are Protestant, and those that are Catholic, when it comes to being Americanized and conservative.
yes it was a push poll.
This is why democrats want Amnesty.
But the liberal media many blame it on Republicans as if they are all suicidal.
