Daily Caller ^ | November 10, 2016 | Caroline May

The National Council of La Raza says there is no way more Latino voters supported Donald Trump than supported former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2012.

According to exit poll data, Trump received 29 percent of the Latino vote, compared to the 27 percent Romney received in 2012. While Trump lost the Latino vote Tuesday night, his 36 percentage point margin of defeat among Latinos was also smaller than Romney’s 44 percentage point loss to Barack Obama.

The La Raza moles within the GOP, like McCain, Graham, Flake and Rubio have been telling us for years that we could never win with an enforcement message.
Latinos must be pandered to with promises of amnesty or the GOP would suffer at the polls.

Trump has shattered that lie.

I suspect the number was higher than 29% for Trump.

With all the hype against Trump, especially on Univision, many Latino’s will lie to exit pollsters.

I know several Hispanics that voted for Trump. Most of them are very vocal about it too. They are Christians and said they could not vote for Hillary, but even more, Trump’s message really touched them. They are Christians first, then American. Their Hispanic identity falls into a much lower place of importance.

Time to investigate whether LA RAZA is an “agent of a foreign power”, i.e. Mexico, Cuba, Nicaragua, etc.

FOLLOW THE MONEY and ORDERS.
