  • The overwhelming logic of Hispanics for Trump

    In 1993, First Lady Hillary Clinton lobbied for the North American Free Trade Agreement and her husband signed it. At the time, the Clintons promised NAFTA would create 200,000 new jobs. Instead, NAFTA has destroyed more than 850,000 American jobs while the U.S. trade deficit in goods has rocketed from near zero to $60 billion annually. The even bigger failure of the Clinton NAFTA deal, however, has been its tremendous negative impact on Mexico itself and Hispanics on both sides of the border. While tens of thousands of U.S. manufacturing jobs went south under NAFTA, a flood of agricultural products...

Speaking to a few thousand people in Tampa Wednesday, Trump called African Americans 'great people' and promised to address their concerns by addressing failing schools and lost jobs. 'To the African American voter Ė great people. To the Hispanic voter who have been absolutely treated terribly, I say: What do you have to lose? What?' Trump said. 'I will fix it.

    New Yorkís 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 ó while 21 percent of registered Republicans say they will go for Hillary Clinton.

But if a new poll from Latino Decisions is to be trusted, the real estate magnate is doing better among Latinos than conventional wisdom would ever have thought possible. The poll of 800 registered Latino voters in 12 battleground states, which was released during a press conference a couple of miles from the site of the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday afternoon, found that Hillary Clinton takes 71 percent of Latino support, versus 24 percent who back Trump, and five percent who are undecided....

    The comments came during a speech Cruz gave Tuesday morning in Houston. Cruz was speaking at a breakfast event held by the Houston Realty Business Coalition at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. (SNIP) ďAnd Iíll tell you I donít think Iíve ever seen a Hispanic panhandler,Ē Cruz continued. ďNow why is that? Because in our community it would be viewed as shameful to be out there on the street begging. Now you want work on your house? Youíll see men and women lining up to work their fingers to the bone to provide for their kids to put food...

    Donald Trump has used the issue of immigration to help make himself the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, but his harsh rhetoric also has earned him the highest negative ratings among Hispanic voters of any major GOP hopeful, according to a Washington Post-Univision News poll. ... Today, 8 in 10 Hispanic voters have an unfavorable view of Trump. That includes more than 7 in 10 who have a ‚Äúvery unfavorable‚ÄĚ impression of him, which is more than double the percentage of any other major candidate. Those findings compare with a Univision survey taken around the time of Trump‚Äôs announcement...

    Intermarriage and assimilation blur racial and ethnic lines, but the Census Bureau is determined to keep them sharp. The U.S. Bureau of the Census has projected that America will have a "non-white" majority by 2044. A new and quite stunning article in the Winter 2016 issue of The American Prospect (a left-of-center journal) debunks that claim and undermines the widespread faith that the Census Bureau knows what it is doing. The article, by the sociologist Richard Alba, is entitled "The Likely Persistence of a White Majority: How Census Bureau statistics have misled thinking about the American future." Its two key...

    Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz represent something new: Latino candidates who could win a major party‚Äôs nomination. But with two-thirds of Hispanics being Mexican-American, the historic differences among them and Cuban-Americans will play a crucial role. LAS VEGAS ‚ÄĒ In an election of firsts, there is something else unique, sensitive, and awkward beginning to stir controversy that could shape the Latino vote. With Cuban-American senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz in position to win the Republican nomination, many Hispanic voters may be presented with a novel choice: a Latino candidate for president, but one who probably doesn‚Äôt share their family‚Äôs...

    I‚Äôd guess there‚Äôs an 80 percent chance right now that one of them will end up as nominee, so consider this a sneak preview of how viciously red-in-tooth-and-claw nasty the left will be next summer. Liberal Hispanic groups have launched a new campaign designed to turn Latino voters against the two Cuban American Republicans who have risen to the top tier of the GOP presidential field √ʬĬĒ assailing Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz as traitors to their own culture.Radio and online ads, social media posts and public discussions with Hispanic leaders in swing states are accusing Cruz and Rubio,...

    Immigrant rights activists have vowed to sign up 1 million immigrants ‚ÄĒ mostly Mexicans ‚ÄĒ for citizenship and then quickly register them to vote in time to punish Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans at the polls in November for their harsh rhetoric. The advocates say the new voters could make a difference in the presidential race, where most of the Republican field has tacked to the right in word and policy, and in key Senate races in Illinois and Florida, where Republicans will be reaching to hang on to critical seats.

    Obesity is still rising among American adults, despite more than a decade of public-awareness campaigns and other efforts to get people to watch their weight, and women have now overtaken men in the obese category, new government research shows. For the past several years, experts thought the nation's alarming, decades-long rise in obesity had leveled off. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report Thursday that the obesity rate has climbed to nearly 38 percent of adults, up from 32 percent about a decade earlier.

    A new poll of 2,000 citizens shows that Donald Trump's immigration stance has more support among Hispanic Americans than Gov. Mitt Romney won in 2012, even after the pollsters reminded respondents of Trump's most controversial statements on immigration. Twenty-eight percent of Hispanic Americans agreed with Trump's June statement that "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." In 2012, Romney won 27 percent of the Hispanic-American vote. Twelve percent of Hispanic-Americans said they were not sure what to say about Trump's comment,...
