    The Latino shift to Republicans is real. Another new poll has confirmed this. The election of Republican Mayra Flores in southern Texas was just the beginning. This is going to change the American electorate for the better. The only question is by what sized margin. The Washington Examiner reports: Yet another poll shows Hispanics going Republican The biggest political story of 2022, perhaps as big as the overturning of Roe v. Wade, is the sudden shift of the Hispanic vote away from Democrats toward the Republican Party. And yet another poll, this time the CBS/YouGov poll from last week, confirms...
  • The Democrats’ Woes With Hispanic Voters

    For more than a decade, Democratic strategists have argued that social and demographic changes in the U.S. will inevitably deliver growing support for their party. After all, the white working-class population, which tends to vote Republican, is in sharp decline, while the nonwhite population, which is presumed to be politically liberal, keeps growing. On this theory of the “rising American electorate,” as it’s called, Democratic victory is simply a matter of getting this burgeoning nonwhite population to the polls. “Democrats are so obsessed with wooing conservative white working-class voters that they fail to see the ever-increasing ranks of people of...
  • Hispanics drift away from the party of abortion, gun control, and Jan. 6

    It's not every day that a politician's gaffe perfectly encapsulates his or her party's growing separation from a community that has been a vital part of its electoral coalition. But Dr. Jill Biden made exactly such a misstep on Tuesday when she said Hispanics in the United States were as "distinct as the bogidas of the Bronx" (meaning to say "bodegas") and as " unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio." Wow. Univision spent a whole segment denouncing the speech that same day. The National Association of Hispanic Journalists responded in a tweet : “We are not tacos.”...

    A Texas congresswoman took a bite out of First Lady Jill Biden for her recent gaff about the state’s Hispanic community and tacos by comparing the remarks to how much inflation has increased the cost of the popular dish. GOP representative Mayra Flores grilled Biden by tweeting a saucy meme that focused on how “taco inflation” during the current administration was squeezing people’s wallets. “Tacos inflation — tacos are unique. Ingredients may vary,” said the meme.

    "Hi, I’m Jill. Jill Biden. But please, call me Dr. Biden" So demands the First Birthing Person. Jill Biden has not a Ph.D, but a Ed.D., a much lesser degree. Joe Biden explained it this way“She said, ‘I was so sick of the mail coming to Sen. and Mrs. Biden. I wanted to get mail addressed to Dr. and Sen. Biden.’ That’s the real reason she got her doctorate,” So Joe Biden basically told the U of Delaware to give Jill a "doctorate" and of course they obliged. Mrs. Biden wanted the credential for its own sake. As for its...
  • 'Unique' as breakfast tacos: Jill Biden roasted over 'LatinX IncluXion' luncheon

    First lady Jill Biden was roasted on social media for her appearance at a "LatinX IncluXion" luncheon in San Antonio on Monday. Biden was one of the scheduled speakers at the luncheon, which aimed to increase awareness of how Latinos are “integral” to diversity efforts in the workplace, according to the event description. But the occasion will perhaps best be known for how critics, Republicans and conservative Hispanics among them, chided the first lady for not just the name of the event but also what she said. “Maybe if we rebrand the Southern Border as Souxern BorderX, Joe Biden will...

    And Why Are They Leaving the Democrats? Hispanic working class (noncollege) voters are emerging as an Achilles heel for the Democrats. Here are some facts about Hispanic working class voters that help bring this challenge for Democrats into focus. In the 2020 election, Hispanic voters moved sharply away from the Democrats. Both Catalist and States of Change (forthcoming) data agree that it was around a 16 point pro-GOP margin shift (two party vote). States of Change data indicate this shift was heavily driven by Hispanic working class voters, whose support for the Democrats declined by 18 points. This pattern could...

    This qualifies as a political earthquake. In a special primary election to fill out the term of former rep. Filemon Vela, who resigned his House seat in March, GOP candidate Mayra Flores received 50.98% of the vote, making a runoff election unnecessary. Rep.-elect Flores will represent the Texas 34 Congressional District that runs along the Gulf Coast to the Mexican border, and which is 84.54% Hispanic.Source.Hispanic voters are dumping the Democrats, a trend that has the potential to doom the party at a national level.🚨BREAKING🚨 The first Mexican-born woman ever elected to Congress is REPUBLICAN @MayraFlores2022 who ran on a...
  • Hispanic Americans Turn to Homeschooling in Record Numbers Following Covid-Era School Closures

    The growing legions of Americans turning to homeschooling after two years of on-again, off-again public education includes one group for whom the option is particularly challenging — first-generation immigrants. According to recent Census Bureau data, about a quarter of homeschoolers in America are Hispanic, and 18.2 percent of Hispanic families homeschool their children. That’s up markedly from even six years ago, when 3.5 percent of Hispanic families were educating their children themselves at home. First-generation immigrants, many of them with limited educational backgrounds themselves, make up a rapidly growing subset of that demographic. “A lot of these are what we...

    Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R.) is taking out a Spanish-language radio ad to warn voters about a George Soros-backed company's purchase of Hispanic radio stations in Miami in order to "infiltrate" the state with leftist ideology. "Warning, voters! The Left is taking control of our local media," reads an English translation of the DeSantis campaign's ad, which will run on stations set to be acquired by a conglomerate financed by the left-wing billionaire. "George Soros, known for financing extreme leftist causes, is now financing the purchase of Hispanic radio stations right here in Miami." The Latino Media Network, backed by...

    President Biden has been mired in a stretch of disappointing polls, but recent surveys suggest he’s having particular trouble keeping the support of Hispanic voters. A Quinnipiac University poll published this week found that just 26 percent of Hispanic voters surveyed approved of Biden’s job performance, the lowest mark of any demographic group.

    Through 2019 and 2020 the women worked to increase Republican turnout across South Texas, with Flores running Hispanic outreach. For the most part, they toiled out of the spotlight. Even when De La Cruz announced a congressional bid, in 2020, to try to unseat two-term Democratic congressman Vicente Gonzalez, national and state Republicans paid little attention to her campaign... In 2016 Donald Trump hadn’t even mustered 30 percent of the vote in Hidalgo County, where Gonzalez’s district was anchored. Then everything changed. The world of South Texas politics was rocked in November of 2020, when Trump far surpassed expectations in...

    Democrats were caught off guard by Donald Trump’s numbers in South Texas in 2020. The Hispanic Republican women who live there were not. Many of them have played a leading role in urging their neighbors in majority-Hispanic South Texas to question their traditional loyalty to the Democratic Party. Hispanic women now serve as party chairs in the state’s four southernmost border counties, spanning a distance from Brownsville almost to Laredo — places where Trump made some of his biggest inroads with Latino voters. A half-dozen of them are running for Congress across the state’s four House districts that border Mexico,...

    President Biden comfortably won the Hispanic vote in 2020 by 59 percent, according to the Pew Research Center. Yet a Quinnipiac Poll this month showed Biden’s job approval rating among Hispanics plummeted to just 28 percent. So, what happened? It’s important to know because defection of a once reliable voting bloc could signal disaster for the Democratic Party in this year’s midterm elections and, possibly, loss of majority control in the House and Senate. From my perspective as an immigrant from Nicaragua, combined with analysis of reliable polls, what happened seems clear. First, Hispanic voters care about the same things...

    Republican gains among Hispanics in Reading mirror those in other parts of the country, but Democrats think they still have important advantages with this growing demographic!READING, Pa.—Joseph Nuñez at first didn’t like Donald Trump. “I couldn’t stand the guy. I didn’t like the way he spoke about Hispanics or people in general,” he said. But by 2020, Mr. Nuñez had become a fan of Mr. Trump’s style and priorities, and he voted in favor of giving the president a second term. So did many other Latino voters in this working-class city who had once backed Democrats or, like Mr. Nuñez,...

    The nation’s large and diverse group of Hispanic voters is showing signs of dividing its support between Democrats and Republicans more evenly than in recent elections, a new Wall Street Journal poll finds, a troubling development for the Democratic Party, which has long counted on outsize Hispanic support. One year after giving Democratic House candidates more than 60% of their vote, according to polls at the time, the Journal survey found that Hispanic voters are evenly split in their choice for Congress. Asked which party they would back if the election were today, 37% of Hispanic voters said they would...

    Escalating border crisis turning off minority voters (NATIONAL REVIEW) – Amid the border crisis, which escalated last week with the apprehension of over ten thousand Haitian migrants, President Biden has fallen out of favor with the majority of Hispanic Americans over his handling of immigration policy. Sixty-nine percent of Hispanics disapprove of Biden’s handling of immigration, while only 23 percent approve, according to a new Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday. As for the Biden administration’s handling of deportations of illegal aliens, 41 percent of Hispanic respondents say it is ” not aggressive enough” while 20 percent say Biden has been “acting...
