  • Latinos Want Economic Leadership, Not Isolationism

    04/13/2016 12:34:02 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | April 13, 2016 | Hector Barreto
    If a fierce political campaign can be likened to war, then the war we are watching played out in both the Republican and Democratic presidential primaries proves the ancient saying, “In war, truth is the first casualty.” The leading candidates for the presidential nominations of their parties – the Republican's Donald Trump and Democrat's Hillary Clinton – have taken great liberty with the truth, or have badly missed the point, on issues important to Latino voters. With more than 66,000 Latinos turning 18 each month, it’s critically important that presidential candidates recognize that Hispanics, and particularly the Hispanic community’s business...

    Obama’s approval rating dropped 23 points among Latinos, from 75 percent in December, 2012 to 52 percent in November. Latinos played a critical role in the president’s re-election, with 71 percent of the community’s voters casting their ballots for him.
  • Attack of the Uppity Conservative Hispanics

    There is nothing the liberal establishment hates more than members of the minority groups it considers its political chattel who step off the grounds of the progressive plantation. And right now, it is beginning a long-term de-legitimization campaign, with its media overseers fully engaged, because that Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have dared to forget their place. The liberal establishment is driven not just by anger. It’s driven by fear. It’s easy to see why the media blew up the story of Marco Rubio’s radical decision to take a drink during his state of the union response – he gave...
  • Demography Is Destiny

    Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they've persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas. Democrats haven't changed anyone's mind. They changed the people. More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points -- the widest margin since 1984. But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate. Not only that, but the non-white electorate is far more Democratic than it was in...
  • Democratic/Media Axis again FURIOUS with Cuban-American Voters!

    11/03/2012 6:24:31 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | November 2, 2012 | Humberto Fontova
    As we go to press polls show America’s largest swing state in a dead head between Romney and Obama. Florida has 29 electoral votes and the third largest “Hispanic” population in America. Normally this means a cakewalk for any Democrat. But whoops! Turns out that about a third of these Florida Hispanics (Cuban-Americans) are actually so—as in Americans whose ancestors hail almost exclusively from Europe’s Iberian Peninsula known as Hispania by the Romans. So as a broken clock is right twice a day, the term “Hispanic” as used by the mainstream media can actually be correct about 1/1000 of...
  • Lefty Attack: Mitt Romney “Darkened” Skin Before Univision Event

    At a time when 23 million Americans are unemployed and unemployed, the national debt is exploding, and poverty rates are the highest they’ve ever been, the national media should be focused on issues of paramount importance. That didn’t happen on Friday. Instead, at a “Meet the Candidate” event in Florida sponsored by Univision, a bunch of Lefty bloggers accused Governor Romney of “darkening his skin” in order to curry favor with Latino voters. Appalling: Mitt Romney appeared on Univision's "Meet the Candidate" event on Wednesday evening to talk about issues of importance to Latino voters, including immigration, education and foreign...

    "A friend of mine, a Hispanic entrepreneur, asked me a question some time ago. He said, 'When is the last time you saw a Hispanic panhandler?' I think it's a great question. I'll tell you, in my life I never once have seen a Hispanic panhandler, because in our community it would be viewed as shameful to be out on the street begging." That was Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz of Texas on "Fox News Sunday." He went on to make the case that Latinos are culturally conservative and economically entrepreneurial. Just for the record, I've seen a Latino...

    For a non-candidate, Rick Perry is doing awfully well. Late yesterday, the Texas governor — who has repeatedly insisted that he is not running for president — received an endorsement from the Hispanic Republican Conference of Texas. A presidential endorsement. “Although the governor has not officially entered the race for president we hope our endorsement will encourage him to do so,” said state Rep. Aaron Peńa, R-Edinburg, the Conference’s chairman. “Rick Perry has been good for Texas and the members of the Conference join many across the state and the country who think he would be great for the nation.”...
  • How Did the GOP Perform With Hispanic Voters In 2010? (Actually, the best it has been since 2004)

    Weekly Standard ^ | 11/30/2010 | Jay Cost
    Over the weekend, Texas Republican representative Lamar Smith penned an interesting column for the Washington Post arguing that the GOP's haul among Hispanic voters was "historically robust." Is this conclusion correct? If so, what does it mean, about both 2010 and the future of the Republican party?I think Smith's conclusion here is sound, and the 2010 midterm election indicated that, increasingly, both political parties have to forge a multi-ethnic/multi-racial voting coalition if they hope to acquire the majority. In my opinion, this is a more challenging task than either liberals or conservatives have recognized. To begin, let's look at the parties' performances among Hispanic voters...

    According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as of July 1, 2008, there were 46,943,613 Hispanics in the United States, about 15.4 percent of the population. This means that the Latino vote will be crucial in future elections. They already account for a high percentage of electorate in swing states like Arizona, New Mexico and Florida.

    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, have you thought back to the 2008 election? Have you asked yourself who was responsible for that loss? Have you asked yourself who really should shoulder the blame and the burden for the defeat of Senator McCain? A lot of people have been speculating this, a lot of postmortems on the election. Let's go to the BBC. BBC World Service, host Stephen Sackur spoke with former McCain campaign manager Rick Davis and asked Rick Davis on whose shoulders rests the burden of the McCain defeat.

    For many conservatives, John McCain is not their favorite Republican. They think he's built a career at their expense, painting them as fools and bigots. They resent his holier-than-thou attitude. And they're not inclined to trust anyone who has been so fawned over by the national media. Curiously, a lot of liberal Democrats feel the same way about McCain. He isn't their favorite Republican either -- but it's because they know he'll be tough to beat in November. They would have preferred to run against someone more extreme and easier to demonize. That's not John McCain. first met McCain 10...

The head of the National Council of La Raza visited Miami on Tuesday to promote the event and to launch a new push to mobilize Hispanic voters in the 2008 presidential election.

    WASHINGTON, June 9 — Helped by the fight over immigration, Democrats seeking their party’s presidential nomination are moving to court Hispanic voters like never before, as a string of early primary states with sizable Hispanic voting blocs prompt candidates to hire outreach consultants, start Spanish-language Web sites and campaign vigorously before Hispanic audiences. The battle for Hispanic voters is a result of the decision by several states with large Hispanic populations to move their presidential primaries to early 2008, including California, Florida and New York. Roughly two-thirds of the nation’s Hispanic residents live in nine of the states that will...

    Washington, DC ( -- A new poll shows that pro-life candidates who want to increase their level of support should appeal more to Hispanic voters. The survey shows Hispanic voters are more interested in abortion issues than non-Hispanics. Conducted by Miami-based Encuesta Inc., an independent market research and opinion polling firm, the poll asked both Hispanic and non-Hispanic voters to consider which political issues were important in deciding their vote. Some 64 percent of Hispanics said abortion was very important while 40 percent of non-Hispanic voters said abortion was important, a difference of 24 percent. That's important because the poll...

    White House adviser Karl Rove is scheduled to speak tomorrow at the annual conference of the federally funded, left-wing, open-borders-advocacy group, the National Council of La Raza. If he does not want his speech to look like an act of appeasement, he should confront La Raza on its opposition to commonsense policies designed to secure both U.S. borders and U.S. pocketbooks. La Raza, which means “The Race” in Spanish, has denounced as “horrendous” and “appalling” the House immigration bill passed in December, which was sponsored by Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R.-Wis.) and supported by the overwhelming majority of House Republicans....

    Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is moving to shore up an area of vulnerability in his re-election campaign against his trailing Democratic opponent, Phil Angelides. On Tuesday at an event in L.A., he will announce the formation of Hispanic Families for Arnold. When he was elected in the 2003 recall election, Schwarzenegger garnered 34 percent of the Latino vote, a good total given that the replacement Democratic nominee, Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante, is Mexican-American. But in some recent polls matched up against Angelides, Schwarzenegger is running under 20 percent. Forty to fifty community leaders and their families will join Schwarzenegger at the...

Washington, Oct 28 (EFE).- Most Hispanic U.S. voters support Democrat John Kerry in next week's presidential election and think President George W.

The survey was conducted Oct. 4-16 among 1,603 registered Hispanic voters from the 11 states with the highest Hispanic population. Joining the Post and Univision - the largest U.S. Spanish-language television network - in carrying out the poll was the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute....

    The Board of Directors of The Latino Coalition today released the Florida results of their annual National Survey of Hispanic Adults. The survey shows that Florida Hispanic voters prefer President Bush by a 2-1 margin. "This survey shows that President Bush has been able to develop a significant lead among Florida Hispanic registered voters, and could make the difference in who wins Florida in November," said TLC President Robert Deposada. "According to VNS, in 2000 Bush won the Hispanic vote by a 49 percent-48 percent margin. But if the election were today, President Bush's lead could solidify Florida's electoral votes...

Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, for the newly drawn fajita stripshaped district, which runs from southeast Austin to McAllen and Pharr. And her signs are everywhere, located at busy intersections in staunchly Democratic Hidalgo County, standing alongside those of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, who are making their second White House run. Klein described herself as "fascinated" by the District 25 campaign, knowing she has the potential to be the first...

Rick Perry will be to turn out Hispanics, his core supporters who have yet to be pumped up by his expensive and historic campaign, according to voting experts and a new poll. The Sanchez get-out-the-vote strategy, analysts say, will have to push hard on the traditional phone banks, door-to-door canvassing and Spanish-language TV ads.

    This is one of few warning calls you’re going to get on this issue. The Republican party; local, state and national is simply going to have to change its mode of operation in regard to the hispanic population. Hispanic conservatives and bilingual Americans (white, black, etc.) have been trying to get the party to understand the ramifications of the coming demographic changes. However, those who have been trying are running into a wall of bigotry. The individuals who speak Spanish, be they hispanic, white, black, etc. and share the same conservative, less-government, lower-taxes, work-for-what-you-get philosophy are frustrated by party regulars--who...
