  • Hispanic Clout Is Growing in Our Elections and Our Country

    11/18/2021 11:13:52 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | November 18, 2021 | Gelet Martinez Fragela
    As the second-largest ethnic group in the United States, Hispanics do not need special treatment. We just need equal treatment. Consider the issue of voter ID laws, which the left insists are somehow designed to disenfranchise Hispanic voters. UCLA election law professor Franita Tolson lashed out against voter ID laws during a September 23 Senate committee hearing on the Voting Rights Act, telling Senator Ted Cruz that such statutory requirements disproportionately affected Latino voters. When Cruz asked Tolson what made the Texas voter ID laws racist, she replied, “The fact that the voter ID law was put into place to...

    Forty-seven years ago, Maria del Carmen Guzman-Weese stood with her mother and sister to take the oath of US citizenship. Then 17, Maria suddenly turned to her mother, and said: “I love this country but I cannot be a citizen because of you. I need to want it because of me.” Three years later, Maria finally took that oath, because it was her choice, and so she could vote for Ronald Reagan. “That time it came from my heart,” she said. Many Hispanic immigrants like Maria feel a natural affinity for the Republican party — an allegiance that often bewilders...

    BELL, California - Violeta Alvarez is so passionate about Bernie Sanders that she becomes emotional talking about the white, 78-year-old senator from Vermont, a state 3,000 miles from this sun-drenched California enclave. “This is the first time in my life I’ve seen a presidential candidate reaching out to the city of Bell, this small community,” said Alvarez, a 53-year-old volunteer organizer, pointing to goose bumps breaking out on her arm. Sanders’ campaign hopes efforts in communities like Bell, a working-class, mainly Latino city of 35,000 people near Los Angeles, could be his path to the Democratic Party’s nomination to take...

    We often hear about President Trump’s appeal within his party. His team keeps a very close eye on the numbers and the President often Tweets them out, ranging from 92%-95% in recent months. His party loves him. But it will take more than his own party to win reelection. According to campaign manager Brad Parscale, numbers coming out of his recent Sunrise, Florida rally tell us he’s well on his way to securing unlikely (at least in the eyes of mainstream media) voters. His huge rally, which drew over 31,000 people this week, had a large number of Democrats and...

    There are millions of Americans who didn't vote for Trump who have substantially benefited from the economic boom created by his tax cut and deregulation policies.  The median household income is up $5,003 before taxes for his term so far, and given the tax cuts, the after-tax total must be even higher.  Racial and ethnic minorities with large numbers of low-income members have benefited tremendously from the cutoff of the supply of unskilled labor from illegal aliens, as wages have climbed steeply at that end of the scale. Beth Bauman of Townhall notes that Hispanics have particularly benefitted: The Hispanic unemployment rate currently sits at...

    It didn't take long for the Trump campaign to figure out how to troll Joe Biden moments after the former vice president's campaign announced a Latino voter outreach program on Wednesday. Biden, who spent the day campaigning across Pennsylvania and Iowa, announced "Todos Con Biden," a "national network of Latino supporters" working to help elect the former vice president earlier on Wednesday. But there's one problem. The Biden campaign failed to purchase, or even lock down the @TodosConBiden Twitter handle before announcing the new effort -- prompting the president's reelection team to do what it does best: troll. Now,...

  • Why Trump’s Approval Ratings Are Up Among Minorities

    Polls increasingly show they have improved dramatically in key voter blocs. mounting number of voter polls show that, despite shrill denunciations of the President by the Democrats for his alleged racism, Trump is enjoying a dramatic increase in his approval ratings among minorities. This isn’t, as some liberal news outlets and pundits have suggested, wishful thinking based on outlier polls. The trend began showing up in surveys early this year and appears to be gaining momentum. Some polls now show his approval numbers at 25 percent among African-American voters and 50 percent among Hispanic voters. If those figures hold for...

    During the interview Bartiromo asked Bannon President Trump’s border policies. Steve praised President Trump and even suggested Trump may get 40-50% of the Hispanic Vote in the upcoming election. Steve Bannon: To defeat Donald Trump you have to defeat him. He’s the toughest candidate I’ve seen in my lifetime. Tougher than Ronald Reagan. And so you’re going to have to bring it… Remember what President Trump is trying to do on the border is all about the rule of law. I happen to think he’s going to get 40 or 50% of the Hispanic vote in this country.

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 14,20019 | by David M. Drucker
    President Trump is poised to launch his 2020 reelection as popular with Hispanic voters as other Republicans, bucking predictions that provocative nationalist rhetoric and hard-line border policies would crater his support with this critical bloc. When Trump, four years ago Saturday, descended the escalator to the lobby of his iconic New York skyscraper and announced his first campaign, he riffed that Mexicans "with lots of problems," including rapists, were crossing the southern border. Many Republicans, establishment and otherwise, were mortified. They fretted that nominating Trump, never mind electing him, would permanently doom the GOP with Hispanics. It hasn’t worked out...

    The national seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos in the U.S. labor force fell to a record low of 4.2% in April, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data released Friday show. In April, the unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos, aged 16 and up, was 4.2%, down from 4.7% in March – breaking the record low of 4.3% set two months earlier in February. BLS began tracking Hispanic-Latino employment data in 1973. The number of unemployed Hispanics fell to 1,198,000 - the fewest unemployed since August of 2007 (1,190,000) and a decline of 165,000 from 1,363,000 in March...

    Nine years ago Rick Scott, then a Florida businessman, sat down with a group of self-described jaded Republican strategists to discuss what it would take for him to run for governor. "You are not going to get anywhere with Hispanic voters, but we'll try," said Wes Anderson, founding partner and pollster for OnMessage Inc. (where my co-author, Brad Todd, works). "Rick Scott looked at us and just shook his head. He said, 'I reject your dismissal of Hispanic voters. We are going to pursue them, and we're gonna pursue them hard,'" explained Anderson. "He flat-out rejected that there was this...

    As a Never Trumper, I didn’t get it. So, I interviewed some Latinos for Trump and I got an earful. Many of them saw themselves not as Latinos but as Americans, and so they weren’t hung up on Trump’s anti-Latino screeds. They didn’t like or trust Clinton, appreciated Trump’s frankness, wanted a strong leader, and thought he was right about a lot of issues, including trade and immigration. Yes, immigration. What most non-Latinos don’t grasp is that Latinos are ambivalent about illegal immigration. They have a front-row seat not just to the pain of deportations, but also to how many...

    Republicans and Democrats alike are investing heavily in wooing Florida’s Hispanic voters as they battle over the governor's mansion, a Senate seat and at least four House seats that are up for grabs in November. Florida’s diverse Hispanic community presents unique campaign challenges, as sub-blocs of Hispanic voters respond to different policy proposals and campaign styles. Democrats are hopeful they’ll be able to build on a stronger showing in the last presidential election with the traditionally Republican South Florida Cuban-American community. In 2016, Democrats won 50 percent of the Cuban-American vote, an outcome credited to millennials put off by President...

While everyone is told to worry about Russia interference, the world’s most powerful company is attempting to steal our election. It is very disturbing. They can steal the election and no one would know it. GOOGLE DENIED IT Google denied it but they took...

    Republicans might have to part with some hard-earned fundraising to shore up Texas, but they might not be alone in defending previously safe territory. A new poll out last Friday in California shows the gubernatorial race to be unexpectedly close, and not just between two flavors of progressives. The leading Republican contender is within five points of Gavin Newsom, a result that might force Democrats to shift funds away from other states: If California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom was expecting an easy race for the governorÂ’s mansion, a poll released Thursday didnÂ’t carry much in the way of good...

    President Trump's public approval numbers have hit 50% among likely voters, according to a new Rasmussen poll, which is good news for midterms. And who should be pushing those ratings to el norte? No kidding: Hispanic voters. You know, the ones who are supposed to hate Trump with a passion. After all, doesn't the press dutifully report that Trump is an enemy of illegals, and aren't illegals in the same conventional wisdom simply synonymous with Hispanics, and with Hispanics and illegals all the same thing, isn't it all just proof that Trump is racist? Here's what the Washington Times, now...
