  • Donald Trump’s win leaves Hispanics wondering if their influence has waned on issues

    Hispanics, who for more than a decade insisted they were the key to American politics, are now grappling with a life on the outside — stunned that a Republican managed to capture the White House without winning at least a third of their support. Immigrant rights advocates insist that Latinos did turn out in record numbers, and say they voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton, doubting major media exit polls that showed President-elect Donald Trump captured some 29 percent nationally. But that leaves another conundrum: If Republicans can win without Hispanic support, that could sap the negotiating power Latinos have claimed...
  • Cuban-Americans Voted for Trump at Higher Rate than “White” Americans

    While “White” American voters supported Trump at a rate of 56%, Cuban American voters went for the Republican candidate at a rate of 58%--or perhaps even higher. Gosh? What could possibly account for this phenomenon?Well, if the quip “you had to be there” applies anywhere, it’s in explaining the voting habits of Americans of Cuban heritage. By “there” I mean in a communist country—but not as a tourist! Not like the tens of thousands of (mostly pinko) Americans who’ve been visiting Cuba and filling the coffers of Cuba’s terror-sponsoring Stalinist rulers the past few years, thanks to Obama.No, instead...

    Cuban-American leaders and human rights activists within the island nation are hoping that the incoming Trump administration will scale back President Obama’s efforts to restore relations between the two countries, measures they say emboldened the communist regime and brought the U.S. little in return. Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican who sits on the Foreign Relations Committee, said that a top priority for him next year will be to roll back sweeping changes President Obama implemented that significantly eased trade and travel restrictions. Rubio, like many Cuban-Americans who have opposed the normalization of relations, said Obama’s overtures to the Cuban...
  • First Stage of Grief — Denial: La Raza Disputes Trump’s Latino Support

    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. La Raza, however, says that exit poll data is incorrect. ...more...

    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” co-panelists Kimberly Guilfoyle and Juan Williams reacted to the minorities, particularly in the state of Florida, that had voted for President-elect Donald Trump in Tuesday’s election. Guilfoyle noted out Trump had outperformed these voter compared then-GOP presidential nominee former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) in the 2012 presidential, to which Williams suggested it might have something to do with those voters being “not comfortable with a woman as a leader.”

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trump’s victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...
  • Could Hispanics be surging to Trump?

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 8,2016 | MICHAEL BARONE
    Are Hispanic voters trending to Donald Trump? It seems unlikely, but there's at least a little polling evidence that that's been happening over the past week. Now LAT/USC is showing Hispanics voting 47 percent for Clinton and 44 percent for Trump. It's possible that this represents the changed responses of just a few individuals, in a poll which asks the same panel of respondents for their preferences at regular intervals. But the total number of Hispanic respondents is listed at 181 — small but not totally suspect. Does this represent a surge of Hispanics toward Trump or away from Clinton?...

    A new poll shows that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has improved his standings in Florida, now leading his opponent Hillary Clinton by four points. Trump is polling with 46 percent of the vote, while Clinton is trailing with 42 percent, according to the latest New York Times Upshot/Siena poll of the state. Trump has improved his standings among Cuban-Americans by 19 points in just one month. A September poll showed Trump only earning 33 percent of Florida Cubans, with Clinton leading with 41 percent. Today’s poll shows a dramatic shift. Trump now leads Clinton among Cubans by ten points...

    Poll: Clinton Maintains 50-Point Lead Among Latinos by CARRIE DANN Hillary Clinton is maintaining a 50-point lead over Donald Trump among Latino voters heading into the final weeks of the presidential election, and more Latinos now say they they're very interested in the November contest, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll. The poll found that 67 percent of Latino likely voters back Clinton in a four-way matchup, while just 17 percent back Trump. Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein each garner three percent support. In a head-to-head matchup, Clinton leads Trump among Latino likely...
  • National Poll: Trump Surges Among Latinos, African-Americans

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has some favorable ratings among both Latinos and African-American voters, according to results of the latest Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll. The poll's demographic breakdown showed that by combining voters who were "very favorable" and "somewhat favorable" to Trump, the billionaire developer got a positive rating from 35 percent of Hispanics and 24 percent of African-Americans. A Breitbart analysis of the poll notes Trump would not win with either group because 49 percent of Hispanics and 69 percent of African-Americans still have a "very unfavorable" view of him. Hispanic support would help Trump in Florida,...

    There’s something odd that seems to consistently happen when corporate Wall Street media narratives are in diametric opposition to factual reality; they begin a process of trying to quantify their fallacy. An example today comes from the notoriously globalist-minded Gallup Polling Group. But first, it’s important to understand the Gallup ideology (just to avoid being labeled “conspiratorial” etc.) – in their own words: […] Gallup has committed the next century to achieving a global endeavor of peerless magnitude, integrity, and strategic value — the Gallup World Poll. Gallup’s World Poll continually surveys the wellbeing, behaviors, and attitudes of the world’s...

    Republican Donald Trump is surging with African American voters and gaining more support from Latino voters than Mitt Romney and John McCain. The latest LA Times Daybreak poll has Hillary up by just six-tenths of a point. Trump is surging with black voters and doing better with Latino voters than Romney or McCain. In the last ten presidential election cycles the highest black vote share for a Republican was 12% for Bob Dole in 1996. Trump has 14.6% of the black vote in today’s LA Times poll. If Donald Trump captured 25 percent of the African American vote he would...

    The Republican National Committee is stepping up its efforts to attract Hispanic voters. A new social media campaign called "GOP Hispanics: The Week Ahead" is directed toward the demographic and begins with an important message about national security. GOP Hispanics: The Week Ahead | Terrorism RNC Director of Hispanic Communications Helen Aguirre-Ferré spoke with Townhall about the new campaign and why Donald Trump should be a much more attractive candidate to Hispanics than Hillary Clinton. Clinton's supposed strength of being the "most qualified" candidate is actually her biggest weakness, the RNC director explained. "To the contrary," Aguirre-Ferré said. "She ignored...

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Bilingual campaign workers fanned out across the event hall, clutching clipboards as they sought prospective voters to register. Handmade signs shot up from the crowd: “Latinos for Hillary” and “Estoy con ella!” And from the stage at her rally here on Monday night, Hillary Clinton set aside time for “a special word about Puerto Rico.”

    New York Post ^ | 8/14/2016 | Kathianne Boniello
    New York’s 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 York’s 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.

    Donald Trump has said, with characteristic braggadocio, that he will "win the Latino vote." Probably not. 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....
