“Angle won less than 10 percent of Hispanic votes and Beck less than 20 percent. Hispanics generally vote Democratic — but they are not monolithic voters”
80% or higher is “not monolithic”?
Who’s kidding whom here?
What good is one Hispanic vote when four more vote AGAINST YOU?
I would rather lose 100% of the “Hispanic vote” to a good conservative candidate supporting traditional European-based values and culture, than garner 20% of that vote to a mish-mash candidate who supports amnesty.
Notice how Chavez also subtly “plays the race card” to make her example: “not monolithic voters similar to African-Americans”.
Wrong, Linda. Your own example illustrates EXACTLY why Hispanics are indeed “monolithic voters”. The reality that they are not quite as totally “race-based” as are blacks doesn’t change the reality that they [largely] vote as a block.
I don’t expect to see much, if any, change in the voting patterns of Hispanics in the future. If anything, I expect them to become _more_ liberal in their voting patterns, for studies indicate that the children of newly-immigrated Hispanics - particularly illegals - tend to do less well than their parents, due to lack of a work ethic and poor performance in school.
Ms. Chavez is yet one more milquetoast Republican who has swallowed the “diversity pill” and honestly (yet foolishly) believes that ANY newcomer to this country can be persuaded to embrace “Republican” (she would probably never say “conservative”) values if offered the chance.
That’s a beautiful dream.
But that’s _all_ that it is — a dream.
“I would rather lose 100% of the Hispanic vote to a good conservative candidate...”
Really? Then you have just lost about 300 electoral votes, the states of Texas, AZ, NM, Cali, Colorado, Florida, and maybe even Georgia.
If/when Hispanics vote 3 to 1 for Democrats, we get the kind of crappy results we got in 2008. WE dont ever want to go through that again.
