  • After all that's happened, Trump fares no worse with Hispanic voters than Romney or McCain

    How many bad moments has Donald Trump had with Hispanic voters? From Mexican rapists to build-a-wall to Judge Gonzalo Curiel, many Republican insiders view Trump as a one-man wrecking crew, a disaster of unprecedented proportions, when it it comes to the GOP's outreach to Latinos. Perhaps. But right now, after all the problems Trump has had with Hispanic voters, a new poll shows him performing at roughly the recent Republican norm — and no worse than the last two GOP presidential nominees. A new poll from Pew Research Center found Hillary Clinton with a whopping 42-point lead over Trump among...

    American Latinos for Donald Trump expressed outrage on Monday against the mainstream media for coverage given to Hispanics who support Trump – specifically pointing to a Politico article published on Sunday titled, “The lonely lives of Latinos for Trump.” Mark F., who wishes to leave his last name anonymous, was interviewed by Politico and briefly mentioned in the article because he produced many videos for a group on Twitter, “Latinos for Trump.” He said he thought it was unfair that Politico portrayed Latinos as lonely. “I am not ‘Lonely.’ My whole family is voting for Trump.

    MIAMI — Lifelong friends unfriend them on Facebook. Siblings and parents refuse to talk politics. Their kids are home from college stoked about the socialist Bernie Sanders. Sure, their candidate may love them and be three weeks away from becoming the GOP presidential nominee. But it still isn’t easy being a Latino for Donald Trump. From the get-go, with his big campaign announcement splash about Mexican immigrants being rapists and criminals, to his more recent broadside against a federal judge of Mexican heritage, the billionaire Republican’s incendiary rhetoric has made life more than a little complicated for many of his...

Mateen, 29, shot dead 49 people at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Florida, on June 12 in America's worst mass shooting. In an interview with Spanish-language television network Univision the man, who was identified only by the name Miguel, claimed he and Mateen were "friends with benefits". He said their relationship started after they met on a gay dating website and lasted two months until December, during which time they met between...

    For Negrete and other Latinos in the LGBTQ community, the Sunday massacre, which President Barack Obama has recently called an act of terror and a hate crime, shined a spotlight on an issue that has not been discussed enough: the targeting of people of color within the community. “A Latinx transwoman was shot the other day in Santa Ana,” said Negrete. Latinx is a term being used with increasing frequency on social media, replacing the “o” in Latino with “x,” making the masculine identifier gender-neutral.

    In the weeks following Donald Trump's victory in Massachusetts' Republican primary with 49 percent of the vote, signs supporting the bombastic New York real estate mogul caused unease in East Boston. For many in the heavily Latino area, it was especially unsettling when a large Trump banner with his name and campaign slogan – "Make America Great Again" – went up above the entryway to a neighborhood laundromat, the Soap Box on Meridan Street. Trump launched his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination last year with a tirade against illegal immigration, labeling Mexicans who entered the United States illegally "rapists'...

    In 2012, the hapless dunce Mitt Romney stumbled to a horrid 27% support among Latinos. A new Fox News Latino poll shows Donald Trump is getting 37% of the Latino vote. Evidently the Hispanic community does not completely share the media and some Republicans’ faux “outrage” at Trump’s calling La Raza’s judge, La Raza’s judge. Once again the gleeful cackles from the Beltway about Trump’s “political demise” are proving to be not only wrong but exactly opposite of the reality of the situation. If Trump is doing 37% with Hispanics in the midst of the tidal wave of fake indignation...

    Donald Trump has promised to build a wall along the southern border. He’s referred to Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals. He's attacked the Republican Hispanic governor of New Mexico. He’s done much to alienate Latino voters since entering the presidential race, yet according to some polls he’s running ahead of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney among them. Trump and his surrogates frequently cite online NBC News/SurveyMonkey polls that have Trump winning just under a third of the Hispanic vote, more than Romney’s 27-percent performance against President Barack Obama. But other polling shows Trump well below historical benchmarks for winning...

Yet far from the protests, an increasingly vocal Hispanic minority is speaking out in favor of the brash billionaire. They are backing Trump even in the face of resentment and suspicion from friends and family, who are among the overwhelming majority of non-white voters opposed to the New York businessman's candidacy...

The poll found that 62 percent of registered Latino voters would head to the ballot box for Clinton in November, while only 23 percent would support Trump on Election Day – a finding that many experts say is not surprising given the two candidates’ differing stances on issues important to Latinos.

Those Latinos who are Democrats (as about 80 percent of them are, according to surveys) are busy dividing up their support between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, with most of it going to Clinton.

    Many of the findings in this report contradict trends that appear in publicly reported data. For instance, publicly reported statistics indicate that CPS has made tremendous progress in elementary math and reading tests, while this analysis demonstrates only incremental gains in math and almost no growth in reading. The discrepancies are due to myriad issues with publicly reported data—including changes in test content and scoring—that make year-over-year comparisons nearly impossible without complex statistical analyses, such as those undertaken for this report. This leads to another key message in this report: • The publicly reported statistics used to hold schools and...

    As far back as Ronald Reagan, politicians have been urging Latinos — who historically have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats — to move over to the Republican Party. The idea has been that, putting questions of immigration aside, Latinos as a whole are conservative about hard work, family values, and religious dedication, which Republicans generally consider to be “their” values. But do they stay that way once they are in the U.S.? If the Republicans continue being the party of strict borders, English-only, and deportation, they’re unlikely to get the first generation to become Republican voters. And like other immigrant groups,...

But that welcome is partially obscured by the faces, T-shirts, and Donald Trump pińatas being paraded by pro-immigrant protesters hours before the debate. Anti-immigration protesters are there as well, holding signs in support of Republican candidate Donald Trump and in opposition to jus solis, or birthright citizenship. Trump supporters rally across the street, mostly keeping to their own side Madera Road, the four-lane road at the end of...

    Only 20 percent say they support The Donald for president. We talked to a few, who even say they agree with him on immigration. Trump will be lucky to win 20 percent of the Latino vote if he makes it to the general election, according to today’s polls. He called Mexicans “rapists,” threw the most prominent Latino reporter out of a press conference, and wants to put his name on a wall running the length of the border with Mexico. Pińatas are literally being made out of him and selling like hotcakes in Mexico. So who the hell are the...

    Sunday on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” while discussing his confrontation with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump last week at a press conference, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos said next year at the polls Latino voters “won’t forget,” Trump “promoting in his speeches bigotry and hatred.”

    There is no greater political miscalculation, or fraud, than the notion that Republicans have to “moderate” their positions on immigration reform in order to appeal to Hispanic voters. This fiction began with President George W. Bush’s aborted attempt at comprehensive immigration reform in early 2007.

    LYNWOOD, Calif. — MANY monsters and ghosts haunt the dreams of Latino children. There is “La Llorona,” who is said to moan for her dead children. And more recently, the Chupacabra, which sucks the blood from farm animals and maybe a boy or a girl if he or she doesn’t behave. Now we can add a new boogeyman to the repertoire of scary Latino bedtime stories. His name is The Donald. Ever since he began his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination with a vicious screed against Mexican immigrants, Donald J. Trump has become a figure of dread and comic-book...

    Those of you who listen to my show, and regularly read my columns know that I am one of the biggest Ted Cruz fans that exists. He is an outspoken, proven conservative and a devout Christian. Last month, I watched a Fox and Friends interview with Ted Cruz, and he refused to attack Donald Trump. Not only did he refuse to attack Trump, but he defended him. “I don’t think you should apologize for speaking out against…illegal immigration,” Cruz said. That same month, Cruz and Trump privately met together in New York City, and this caught my attention. Why would...

    Donald Trump may have started off on the wrong foot with Hispanic voters following some controversial comments during his presidential candidacy announcement, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to reconnect with the valuable voting bloc. So when New York state Senator Ruben Diaz (D) sent invitations to a handful of Republican presidential candidates to tour his district, a heavily Hispanic area of the Bronx, Trump gladly accepted. In fact, Trump was the only candidate to respond to Diaz’s invitation. Invitations were also extended to candidates Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). In his invitation to Trump,...

    I think I speak for all of us when I say, “Who’s Kelly Osbourne?”The best part of this is an offended Rosie Perez apologizing to Osbourne after being reminded that they should focus on the Common Enemy. Perez clarified the point Collins was trying to make, saying, “There are a lot of Latinos here in this country that do agree that the immigration problem is a problem and it does need to be addressed and it does need to be fixed. But [Trump] making those comments [about rapists]—those racist comments—does not help.”“If you kick every Latino out of this...

    Kelly Osbourne stuck her foot firmly in her mouth on Tuesday’s episode of “The View” when she made an unfortunate remark during a discussion on Donald Trump’s favorability among Latino voters. “If you kick every Latino out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?” Osbourne said. Her statement was met with an awkward groan from Raven-Symone before co-host Rosie Perez said, “Latinos are not the only people doing that.” Osbourne quickly back-pedaled, saying “I would never mean it like that. I’m not part of this argument.”

    Liberal celebrity Kelly Osbourne inserted foot in mouth on The View today. Her attack on Donald Trump sort of backfired when she exposed herself as a heartless racist. TMZ reported: Kelly Osbourne stepped into it on “The View” Tuesday, challenging Donald Trump’s statement about Mexicans and asking if he has his way … who will clean his toilet. Osbourne quipped, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”

    When the home team suffers an unexpected and startling defeat on its own field, fans and commentators will most likely take notice. And that’s just what’s happening today as the GOP front-runner for the 2016 presidential nomination, Donald Trump, scores a big win in a state where a rival or two could certainly be considered favorite sons. The website Florida Politics reports on what it calls the “shock poll” that finds Trump leading Jeb Bush by a significant margin in Florida, the state where George W.’s younger brother served as a very popular governor from 1999-2007. According to the just-released...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told a Hispanic audience on Monday that illegal aliens must be given U.S. citizenship, and encouraging them to “self-deport” is not an American value. Bush made his remarks at church in Orlando, where he discussed his Christian faith and support for amnesty for illegal aliens, the same day a CNN poll showed that 64 percent of Republican voter support deporting illegals. Self-deportation is another matter: Since the vast majority of illegal aliens commit felonies in order to forge their documents, something like E-Verify could halt fraud in its tracks. No fake Social Security Card, no...
