    Republicans and Democrats alike are investing heavily in wooing Florida’s Hispanic voters as they battle over the governor's mansion, a Senate seat and at least four House seats that are up for grabs in November. Florida’s diverse Hispanic community presents unique campaign challenges, as sub-blocs of Hispanic voters respond to different policy proposals and campaign styles. Democrats are hopeful they’ll be able to build on a stronger showing in the last presidential election with the traditionally Republican South Florida Cuban-American community. In 2016, Democrats won 50 percent of the Cuban-American vote, an outcome credited to millennials put off by President...

    It started with a leaked Google memo, then a Google denial, and now a horrific video demonstrating the arrogance and abuse of power by the Google upper echelon. THE MEMO A shocking memo obtained from a Google insider by Tucker Carlson appears to show they influenced the 2016 election. They steered Hispanic voters to Hillary Clinton. While everyone is told to worry about Russia interference, the world’s most powerful company is attempting to steal our election. It is very disturbing. They can steal the election and no one would know it. GOOGLE DENIED IT Google denied it but they took...
  • Do Democrats Need Rescuing In California? (Hispanic voters now evenly split )

    Republicans might have to part with some hard-earned fundraising to shore up Texas, but they might not be alone in defending previously safe territory. A new poll out last Friday in California shows the gubernatorial race to be unexpectedly close, and not just between two flavors of progressives. The leading Republican contender is within five points of Gavin Newsom, a result that might force Democrats to shift funds away from other states: If California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom was expecting an easy race for the governorÂ’s mansion, a poll released Thursday didnÂ’t carry much in the way of good...
  • Hispanics, (yes, you read that right) push Trump's poll numbers to 50%

    President Trump's public approval numbers have hit 50% among likely voters, according to a new Rasmussen poll, which is good news for midterms. And who should be pushing those ratings to el norte? No kidding: Hispanic voters. You know, the ones who are supposed to hate Trump with a passion. After all, doesn't the press dutifully report that Trump is an enemy of illegals, and aren't illegals in the same conventional wisdom simply synonymous with Hispanics, and with Hispanics and illegals all the same thing, isn't it all just proof that Trump is racist? Here's what the Washington Times, now...

    Immigration does play an important role in how Hispanics vote, but it is not the overriding issue that liberals so often portray it to be. Hispanics do support leniency toward undocumented immigrants that have lived and worked in the United States for long periods, paying their taxes, raising families and staying out of trouble. But they also support tough enforcement measures at the border and in the U.S. interior, including crackdowns on lawless “sanctuary” cities. What Hispanics don’t support is a broad-based campaign against immigrants that might deliberately or inadvertently stigmatize Hispanics as a whole. Mr. Trump, it appears, is...

  • 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,...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
