  • Puerto Ricans in Florida play key role in Senate race

    Puerto Ricans in Florida are poised to play a crucial role in the marquee Senate race there, as both candidates scramble to woo one of the state’s fastest-growing Hispanic groups. Tens of thousands of people, who fled Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island in September, have resettled in Florida. That’s expected to have implications in the high-profile clash between Sen. Bill Nelson (D) and Gov. Rick Scott (R) this fall. The influx of Puerto Ricans — who can register to vote as soon as they arrive since they’re U.S. citizens — are likely to give Democrats a boost,...
  • Dem nightmare deepens as party is 'underperforming' among Hispanics

    Golly gee, it turns out that race-baiting and fear-mongering aren't paying off for the Democrats and that Hispanic voters are not universally motivated by the call of open borders. Josh Kraushaar reports for the National Journal: Democrats counting on President Trump's hard-line immigration policies to spark energized Hispanic turnout and a wave against GOP candidates in this year's midterms will be surprised to see what's transpiring. Even during the heat of the family-separation crisis, Democrats are underperforming in heavily Hispanic constituencies, from GOP-held border battlegrounds in Texas to diversifying districts in Southern California to the nation's most populous Senate battleground...
  • Poll: Trump Gains Minority Support from Growing Economy

    06/29/2018 11:01:04 PM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 22 replies
    Rising optimism on the economy among racial minorities is boosting President Donald Trump’s chances in 2018, says a poll by Zogby Analytics. “Even though President Trump receives little support from these groups, things might be going just good enough economically that he can scrape enough support from these groups so that Republicans can retain control of Congress and Trump gets re-elected in 2020,” said the June 27 report by Zogby Analytics. The racial groups are vital to the Democratic Party’s elite-led raucous coalition of minorities, and any decline in their 2018 turnout could cripple Democrats’ hope of regaining power in...
  • Poll (Zogby): Black, Asian, Hispanic support enough to help Trump win re-election

    some Asian and Hispanic likely voters think things are going good economically, and are optimistic about their personal finances the next four years,” said Zogby. And Zogby found the same among African Americans. For example, among blacks, only 25 percent said the economy would do well the next four years. But when it came to their personal situation, 46 percent said their finances would be better. The poll analysis added, “A quarter of African Americans say their finances are better off than compared to four years ago and 46 percent think their finances will be better in four years.”

    Confidence that African Americans, Asians and Hispanics have in their personal finances improving over the next four years should be enough to help GOP leaders retain control of Congress in the midterm elections and reelect President Trump, according to a new survey. While generally not fans of the president, the three key groups have a good feeling about their future and that should temper their concerns at the polls, said the survey from Zogby Analytics. “Even though President Trump receives little support from these groups, things might be going just good enough economically that he can scrap enough support from...
  • Nolte: Media Fail — Trump’s Approval Rating with Hispanics Jumps 10 Points

    Breitbart ^ | June 28,2018 | John Nolte
    In the heart of the media’s hoax-narrative about President Trump’s separation of illegal alien families at the border, Trump’s approval ratings with Hispanics jumped ten points, according to the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris poll. The “hoax” in the establishment media’s narrative is, of course, the phony outrage over the phony pretense that Trump’s separation policies are any different from those of former President Obama. (They are not.) The media fabricated this narrative out of whole cloth as a way to blot out the fallout over the FBI’s devastating inspector general’s report and the congressional hearings that followed. Nevertheless, this poll, which...
  • Trump Immigration Policy Scores Among Hispanics, Blacks

    Breitbart ^ | 01/22/2018 | NEIL MUNRO
    A new poll shows the GOP is more trusted than Democrats to handle the hot-button immigration issue — and large percentages of Hispanic and African-American voters are backing President Donald Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” immigration policy. The respondents were asked” “Who do you trust more to handle the following issue?” The answer for immigration was 40 percent for Democrats, 41 percent for the GOP and a huge 20 percent for “Don’t know” or “No answer.” That is a large percentage of non-answers, and likely hides a block of pro-Trump supporters who fear to respond truthfully. The poll of 1997...

    Democratic warnings that President Trump would make life worse for minorities were discredited once again Friday, with the release of new unemployment statistics for December. In just under one year in office, the president and the Republican Congress have helped minorities make dramatic gains. Since taking the reins from President Obama, President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress have embraced free-market and pro-liberty economic policies. Now – after a year of reducing regulations, approving a tax cut, and encouraging stricter standards for numerous welfare programs at the state level – the economy is thriving. Working-age minorities are benefitting in ways they...

    The Republican Party is working diligently to support Hispanics who are eager to become civically engaged leaders in their communities. Last month, I led a Republican Leadership Initiative event in Las Vegas to teach local activists how to mobilize their communities around issues that affect them. The training — tailored to a Spanish-speaking audience — was an opportunity to share our conservative message as we work to earn the widespread support of people from all backgrounds, nationwide. To win elections in 2018 and beyond, we must ensure that Americans know that our values of limited government and economic freedom are...

    Rosa Ortega, a mexican born illegal immigrant, registered and voted in 5 different Texas cities for Hillary Clinton. She bragged and bragged about it before finally getting caught. It is almost insulting to our election system that she was able to voted not only illegally, but 5 different times and 5 different places. Even though the portion on her license indentifies her as a non-citizen, she was still able to get through to cast a vote for an election she is not a citizen of. This is exactly what the now President of the United States, Donald Trump, was talking...
  • Paul Bedard : Shock poll: Hispanic support for Trump increases 55% since election

    In its latest survey, Zogby Analytics said that Hispanic support has hit 45 percent, two points higher than the president's generic approval. That is 55 percent higher than the total Latino vote for Trump in the election. He won just 29 percent. "The biggest surprise in this new poll is Trump's approval among Hispanic voters, which is at 45 percent approval/51 percent disapproval. In February the numbers were less among Hispanics at 39 percent approval/53 percent disapproval," said Zogby.

    Barcelona (AFP) - Spain voiced alarm Monday as the US White House's Spanish-language website vanished after Donald Trump came to power, saying removing it was "not a good idea" in a country with millions of Hispanics. But White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer later eased concerns, saying the website was merely being updated. "We are continuing to build out the website both in the issue areas and in that area," he told reporters in response to a question over when the Spanish version of the site would be running again. "We have got the IT folks working overtime right now...

    (Snip) The Latino vote in Florida upended the Clinton campaign’s strategy, and what we thought we knew about where politics is headed. Chalk it up to a kind of cynical Latina wariness, but I never felt convinced that Hillary Clinton would win the general election. Yet as reports poured in about the historic number of Latinos lining up to vote early in Miami, I felt 100 percent certain that the state would remain blue. After all, Cuban-American members of Congress like Carlos Curbelo and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen had refused to endorse Trump. In October, following the “Access Hollywood” scandal, Ros-Lehtinen called...

    Voting in America is over. Donald Trump has emerged victorious over Hillary Clinton and will become the 45th President of the USA. Early signs as to how this unexpected result occurred can be seen in demographic exit poll data, with Clinton doing worse than expected among women, Hispanic voters and African Americans. By comparing Clinton's performance to Obama's in 2012 it is easy to see that she failed to appeal to a number of key voter groups. Groups that it was predicted she would have more support from. - - - Trump gained support among Hispanic and African American voters...
  • This Time, There Really Is a Hispanic Voter Surge

    NY Times ^ | Nov. 7, 2016 | Nate Cohn
    Hispanic voters were largely credited with President Obama’s victory in 2012, but they weren’t as crucial as many believed. Mr. Obama didn’t even need to win the Hispanic vote to put him over the top, thanks to high black turnout and support among white voters in the North. The turnout among Hispanic voters didn’t surge, even though exit polls implied that it had. This year, Hispanic voters, perhaps motivated by Donald J. Trump’s policy proposals (including deportation) and harsh language aimed at undocumented Hispanic immigrants, really might decide this election. Early voting data unequivocally indicates that Hillary Clinton will benefit...

    During an Arizona speech delivered in Spanish, Sen. Tim Kaine cheered the demographic transformation of the United States caused by the nation’s federal immigration policies, telling his Latino audience on Thursday, “You are the future of America.” “By 2050, communities of color will represent the majority of our population,” Kaine said. “So, of course, Latinos will help shape the future of America because you are the future of America.” As the Pew Research Center has documented, this demographic transformation is largely the result of the changes to visa issuance policies enacted into law in 1965 that lifted the immigration controls...

    The Rev. Samuel Rodriguez urged his fellow Hispanics in America to consider Hillary Clinton’s radical pro-abortion position before voting in November. Rodriguez, a strong pro-life advocate in the Hispanic American community and the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, emailed supporters Monday to explain how extreme Clinton’s abortion policies are, the Christian Post reports. “Latinos are pro-life. Latinos, whether they be Evangelical or Catholic, must never sacrifice truth on the altar of political expediency,” Rodriguez wrote. “By asking for our support, Sec. Clinton is asking us to sacrifice our most cherished values. She is asking us to defy...
