  • Trump is doing better with Hispanics than you think

    Donald Trump is performing about as well with Hispanic voters as GOP nominee Mitt Romney did in 2012, according to opinion polls — something that unsettles Democrats and surprises even some Republicans. Skeptics had suggested that Trump would suffer a blowout among Hispanics, given that his rhetoric, on illegal immigration in particular, has been controversial. Trump’s promise to build a wall on the southern U.S. border and force Mexico to pay for it is perhaps the best known of his campaign pledges. And at his campaign launch in June 2015, he said people coming into the country illegally were “rapists.”...

    What Houston's Hispanic Donald Trump supporters lack in experience, they make up for in fervor. Even in Sunday's sweltering 93-degree heat, about a dozen members of the Houston Trump Latino Coalition jumped up and down, blew kisses and ran up to cars to try to win the support of passers-by at the corner of Pansy and Fairmont in Pasadena. They weren't always successful. "Whenever they flip you the finger, just blow them a kiss," suggested one supporter. The Pasadena gathering was the first of two roadside demonstrations Sunday for the group that just formed in June. Co-founder Renee Garza clutched...

    Every square foot of Hazleton evokes America’s grand immigrant story. From the Irish cemetery on Donegal Hill, to the now closed Slovak Holy Trinity Church, this once booming Pennsylvanian coal town was a magnet to the huddled masses who crossed the Atlantic in search of a better life. In 1883, Hazleton became the third city in the world (New York was the first) to install an electric grid. It was literally a shining city on a hill. Today, as Donald Trump’s campaign steps up its focus on Pennsylvania — if he wins its 20 electoral college votes he could take...

    The conventional wisdom holds that sweeping demographic shifts propelled Barack Obama to the presidency. So here’s a simple question: Why haven’t these demographics swept Hillary Clinton to a big polling lead and a smooth glide to victory? Donald J. Trump, after all, has alienated just about every growing demographic group and every category that helped push Mr. Obama to victory. The biggest reason is that demographic change was an overrated contribution to Mr. Obama’s victory, and it will help Mrs. Clinton only at the margins this year. Analysts have conflated all of the effect of higher turnout and percentage of...

    Donald Trump is favored by one-in-four African Americans and one-in-three Latinos, according to a poll conducted by the Boston Herald and Franklin Pierce University. The poll of 1,025 likely voters was conducted by RKM Research for Franklin Pierce University and the Boston Herald, from Aug. 31 to Sept. 4. Overall, Franklin Pierce gets good marks for its polls and the results are in the same ballpark as many other polls. For example, the poll showed Clinton ahead by three points, 44 percent to 41 percent. Eight percent of respondents back Gary Johnson. The poll showed that Trump has a very...

    Will Donald Trump’s pivot on immigration and his trip to Mexico change the way Hispanic voters view him? I don’t know. But quite apart from anything Trump is doing, Hispanics view Hillary Clinton less favorably than they did earlier this year. According to the Washington Post, a new Latino Decisions poll found that 70 percent of registered Hispanic voters say they will definitely vote for Clinton or were leaning towards doing so. That’s not a bad number, but it’s down 6 points from April. Moreover, the same survey found that only 55 percent of Hispanics view Clinton favorably. That’s down...

The rally, organized by Latinos for Trump, was part of an initiative termed Operation Taco Bowl – an apparent reference to a Cinco de Mayo photo of Trump eating a taco bowl with a caption that read, “I love Hispanics.” Trump supporters took turns standing beside two mannequin caricatures of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and telling the crowd why they support Trump.

Instead, NAFTA has destroyed more than 850,000 American jobs while the U.S. trade deficit in goods has rocketed from near zero to $60 billion annually. The even bigger failure of the Clinton NAFTA deal, however, has been its tremendous negative impact on Mexico itself and Hispanics on both sides of the border.

    New York’s Hispanic voters may have a secret soft spot for Donald Trump. A new poll pegs support for Trump at 40 percent among Latino registered voters in the Empire State. The results would be a major break from recent electoral history. Barack Obama took 89 percent of that demographic in his 2012 victory. And, in a sign of continued electoral turmoil, 20 percent of registered Democrats plan to vote for Trump — while 21 percent of registered Republicans say they will go for Hillary Clinton. Obama held on to 95 percent of New York’s Democrats in the last election....

He’s done much to alienate Latino voters since entering the presidential race, yet according to some polls he’s running ahead of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney among them. Trump and his surrogates frequently cite online NBC News/SurveyMonkey polls that have Trump winning just under a third of the Hispanic vote, more than Romney’s 27-percent performance against President Barack Obama.

    With Hispanics, however, Trump leads Clinton 55 percent to 45 percent. (RELATED: Trump Wins In America’s Most Hispanic City) This lead among Hispanics comes as a surprise — a recent poll showed nearly 90 percent of Latino voters view Trump unfavorably. The Gravis Marketing poll of over 1,500 registered voters has an overall margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent.

    You may not have heard of Julian Castro, currently Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, but you will. Hillary Clinton has him very near the top of her list for the veep slot on her ticket. It makes sense: he’s Hispanic, hard left, and the product of an elite education (Stanford, Harvard Law). So serious is the possibility that Page Six reports of him (and his brother Joaquin): “Surprisingly, they don’t speak Spanish,” one insider told me. “They are cramming with Rosetta Stone.” (A spokesman for Julián denies he is studying Spanish.) Julian was Mayor of San Antonio before he...

    Hillary Clinton headed to East Los Angeles Thursday night in honor of the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo -- but her rally in this predominantly Hispanic part of L.A. was anything but celebratory. Hundreds of protesters descended upon East Los Angeles College to express their disdain for the Democratic presidential front-runner. Most of the protesters remained outside the college, although some made their way inside. The protesters -- some of whom carried pro-Bernie Sanders signs -- spanned the spectrum in terms of their key issues: Some were protesting Clinton's refusal so far to release her speaking engagement transcripts and her...

    As an undecided democratic Latina who had recently attended a Bernie Sanders rally last month, I couldn’t help but be curious to see what Ted Cruz had to say during his recent visits to Irvine and San Diego last Monday. I really didn’t know much about him, but perhaps he might be able to offer a different perspective on the future of America – something that could benefit me and the rest of my UCI peers to give him some consideration. As a last minute decision to attend the rally, I missed his appearance at the Irvine Hotel and opted...

    A 2016 Fusion Issues Poll surveyed 1,045 adults from ages 18 to 35. The survey revealed how young people feel about a number of social justice issues related to race, especially reparations. For example, 62 percent of young people say they are opposed to the government providing reparations to African-Americans for slavery, while 32 percent support the measure. However, the breakdown is much different along racial lines. For example, 62 percent of Blacks and 40 percent of Hispanics say they support reparations, while a paltry 21 percent of whites are in favor. Moreover, even when it comes to a mere...

    TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- Governor Sam Brownback has been asked to request the resignation of the leader of the Kansas Hispanic and Latino American Affairs Commission. WIBW Radio reports the commission's director, Adrienne Foster, is being asked to resign because of comments she made to the Kansas City Star, apparently supporting Donald Trump's candidacy for President. Three Democrat lawmakers, Louis Ruiz of Kansas City, John Alcala of Topeka and Ponka-We Victors of Wichita, sent a letter to the Governor's Office expressing displeasure over Foster's support of Trump. The letter states that Foster has diminished her position within the organization. They also...
