  • Latino support for Donald Trump at 40% in New York: poll

    New York Post ^ | 8/14/2016 | Kathianne Boniello
    New Yorks 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 Yorks Democrats in the last election....

    With less than four months to go before Election Day, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton holds a commanding 46-point lead over her Republican rival Donald Trump among Hispanic voters, according to an exclusive poll released Thursday by Fox News Latino. The poll found that 66 percent of registered Latinos would head to the ballot box to vote for Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, compared to only 20 percent who would pick the ticket of Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

    It is evident that Donald Trump has rewritten the rules of political campaigning, leaving the so- called experts, analysts, journalists and even the GOP itself puzzled by the power and effectiveness of his approach. Whether you agree with him or not, his rise and political success is undeniable. He has activated a sentiment in people that appeals to the raw emotion of Washington frustration. On the other hand, he has also set a tone in which public labeling, divisive rhetoric and racially charged comments are OK in the public eye, and has unraveled a whole new way of freedom of...

    The protests outside Donald Trump's rally in Costa Mesa on Thursday night appear to point to an upcoming month of activism by Latinos and others as the GOP front-runner tries to seal the presidential nomination in the state. While the billionaire businessman has faced protests elsewhere, California could prove to be potent ground for demonstrators because of its large Latino population and Trump's negative comments about immigrants in this country illegally. A USC/Times poll found that 77% of Latinos in California have a negative view of Trump. Yet among Republicans, Trump is ahead in that poll and several others. Although...

    New Year's predictions are always perilous. The only thing that's truly predictable is that unpredicted events will upset the most-careful plans and surprise the most-seasoned professionals. Look no further than Donald Trump's shocking rise and enduring popularity as proof that pundits and consultants often don't know half as much as we think we know. But it takes more than a few surprises to drive us out of the prediction business. So with full knowledge that everything I say is liable to be proven wrong within days or weeks, here goes with a few, modest predictions for 2016: America will...

It signalled the start of an effort to narrow Hillary Clinton's wide lead with the state's Latinos. There was just one problem: the audience at the Cheyenne sports complex was mostly white.

Or it is pro-Hillary Clinton Democrats voting in those polls. Trump is ruining the race for the serious Republican candidates and thereby helping Hillary immensely. Democrats must be loving his clown act. It deflects attention from Hillary's emails. Over time, Trump has donated more money to Democratic candidates than Republican candidates. Does he have any positions other than the one on immigration? At least from the news clips I've...

    The demographers agreed: at some point in 2014, Latinos would pass whites as the largest ethnic group in California. Determining when exactly that milestone would occur was more of a tricky question. Counting people isn't like counting movie ticket receipts. The official confirmation had to wait until new population figures were released by the Census Bureau this summer. The new tally, released in late June, shows that as of July 1, 2014, about 14.99 million Latinos live in California, edging out the 14.92 million whites in the state.

DHS said in its fiscal year 2015 budget request that the department has 240,000 employees, which meaning about 50,400 are Hispanic.

The rising seas will swallow us all, and if crops can't be harvested, none of us will eat. But a poll found that the public is more savvy than this story would have you believe. A report by the Public Religion Research Institute and the American Academy of Religion found that race is a consistent predictor both of people's concern toward climate change and inclination to act on it, which suggests members of the public sense that the harms...

The news is little better for the GOP: These voters, who more than any other voting bloc represent the future of the American electorate, generally hold Republicans in the lowest regard. The long-view IOP findings suggest that neither party is poised to win the largest generation in...

The National Latino Evangelical Coalition, a group of over 3,000 Hispanic evangelical churches, immediately expressed its disagreement with the ruling Thursday.

    (snip) The interesting thing about this entire Trayvon vs. Zimmerman is the way that Latinos swayed on the circumstances of this trial. The vast majority of our Presente.org members felt that the ruling was shocking and unjust. But some of our members were upset that, as a Latino organization, we were not publicly siding with Zimmerman (who is of Peruvian decent), hence failing the Latino community. Others felt that the killing of a black boy was not something that we should discuss on our social media platforms, demanding instead that we dont steer from solely focusing on Latino issues and...

    Latino Decision ^ | 07/07/2013 | by Matt Barreto
    While the 2016 presidential election is a full three years away many of the high profile Republican contenders are enmeshed in the immigration reform debate, and if Republicans demonstrate strong leadership on passing comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship possible candidates such as Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan could get strong support from Latino voters. However if Rubio, Bush or Ryan distance themselves from the immigration bill and House Republicans defeat the measure none of the GOP candidates stands to improve on the historic Romney 2012 defeat among Latinos.

    Conventional wisdom has settled on this reality: Republicans inability to attract Hispanic voters not only cost them the 2012 presidential election but has the potential to doom them as a national party in future national elections too. And, the numbers are stark. MItt Romney won just 27 percent of the Hispanic vote last November, a dismal showing that made the 31 percent Arizona Sen. John McCain won in 2008 look good by comparison. But, the numbers dont tell the whole story or even close to it. Carlos Lozada, the editor of the Posts Outlook section and the brains behind...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This is A.J., San Francisco. A.J., thank you for holding. Great to have out program. Hello. CALLER: Yes, I had a question Rush. On your Friday show you took a call and you said that if the GOP passes the immigration law, it's the end of the GOP, they'd be dead. On yesterday's show you took a call from somebody and you said that Marco Rubio is a true conservative, basically we should still support him. So my question to you is, how can we support somebody who is sponsoring a bill that will kill the GOP?...

    There are those who support whether enthusiastically or reluctantly so immigration reform on compassionate grounds or out of a desire to fix our broken system (border control; greater enforcement; changing our evaluation methods for who gets in and who doesnt, etc.). Fair enough. But lets be blunt: political gain is the driving factor. Its no surprise that the three Republicans most publicly discussing the issue are all 2016 contenders: Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Jeb Bush. We conservatives are told by GOP strategists and consultants that immigration reform is the key to winning the Latino vote....
