    As Hillary Clinton rolled out her running mate Tim Kaine in Miami Saturday, erstwhile VP pick contender Elizabeth Warren was also in Florida, slamming Donald Trump's "stupid wall" at the National Council of La Raza conference in Orlando. The Massachusetts senator drew a clear divide between Trump and the country's Hispanic population, telling attendees that Hispanics were disproportionately hit by the 2008 housing crisis while accusing the Republican nominee of profiting from it. "We will never build Donald Trump's stupid wall," she told the crowd to cheers during her 20-minute address, adding that "diversity has made this country strong." Previously,...

Mitt Romney won in 2012, even after the pollsters reminded respondents of Trump's most controversial statements on immigration. Twenty-eight percent of Hispanic Americans agreed with Trump's June statement that "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." In 2012, Romney won 27 percent of the Hispanic-American vote. Twelve percent of Hispanic-Americans said they were not sure what to say about Trump's comment,...

    Conventional wisdom suggests that Donald Trump’s candidacy was dead on arrival with Hispanics. His strong stand against illegal immigration has been viewed as an instant turnoff.However, one consultant suggests that Trump may actually do well with those Hispanics who matter in an electoral context. From the Washington Times: "This stuff you read about how Hispanics are going to run away from Trump in droves is a Northeastern myth," said longtime presidential campaign adviser Mark Sanders."Most Hispanics here in East Texas are here legally, they vote, and they are hard-line opponents of illegal immigration," said Mr. Sanders, a top adviser in...

    And by ‚Äúother candidates,‚ÄĚ I think we know which particular candidate they have in mind.Here‚Äôs the key bit from yesterday‚Äôs presser in Boulder, held just a mile away from tonight‚Äôs debate. Step one: Pronounce Trump persona non grata among Hispanic Republicans. That may or may not actually be true among rank-and-file voters, but the threat here doesn‚Äôt bite without that assumption, does it? ¬ďWe want candidates to know: We¬íre monitoring your language. We are monitoring what you propose. And we¬íre going to hold you accountable,¬Ē said Alfonso Aguilar, head of the American Principles Project‚Äôs Latino Partnership‚ĶAlthough she did not...

    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) ó Republican front-runner Donald Trump is widely unpopular among the nation's Hispanics, a new AP-GfK poll finds, challenging the billionaire's oft-repeated assertion that he will win the Hispanic vote if he becomes his party's nominee. The survey finds many of the Republican candidates running for president would probably struggle to win significant support among Hispanics in a general election. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are their favorites, but even they are a hard sell, the poll suggests. Even so, most in the field are unknown to enough Hispanics that they might have a shot at proving themselves....
  • Don't put Donald Trump on 'SNL' (Barf alert - Hispanics Complain)

    Ö This week it was reported that Donald Trump would guest-host "SNL" on November 7. The same Donald Trump who defamed millions of Latinos with his anti-immigrant comments has been offered a comedy satire platform that would de facto laugh away his bigoted comments. Ö U.S. Latinos expressed chagrin on social media that Trump had been given an opportunity to host "SNL." The Trump invitation is tantamount to validating his comments that Mexican immigrants are "rapists and murderers." Ö The Latino voter isn't just exercising its clout at the ballot box, but on the small and big screens, too. !Si...

    At the Democratic debate on Tuesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders bragged about getting a "D-minus" from the National Rifle Association (which was also Lincoln Chafee's GPA in high school). Nonetheless, Hillary Clinton attacked Sanders for having voted against an insane bill that would have held gun manufacturers and sellers legally liable for the behavior of anyone who uses one of their guns in a crime. I would be open to such a law -- but only after we pass a law holding psychiatrists liable for crimes committed by their patients; lawyers for crimes committed by their clients; and sanctuary cities...

WE LOVE YOU ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE!Ē That was the resounding, loud endorsement given by Myriam Witcher, a devout Trump fan who was invited on-stage by the Republican presidential frontrunner during a Las Vegas rally on Thursday.

    In his ongoing quest to prove that Latinos do, in fact, ďloveĒ him, Donald Trump brought a Hispanic woman named Myriam Witcher up on stage at his Las Vegas rally Thursday night who could not love him more. ďYes, Mr. Trump! We love you! We love you, all the way to the White House!Ē she exclaimed, her hands held high in the air. On Friday, CNNís Brooke Baldwin tried to get to the bottom of how this woman could possibly feel the way she does about Trump. ďOh my God, he is coming ó he is our man sent from...
