Hold the funeral.
According to the exit polls, Romney got 27 percent of the Latino (Hispanic) vote in 2012. For Republicans, that was down from 31 percent in 2008 and 44 percent in 2004.
Obama got 71 percent in 2008.
But the polls show Trump is beating that 27/71 split among Latino (Hispanic) voters.
The Los Angeles Times Poll has it 33/53.
The CBS/You Gov Poll of 13 battleground states has it 33/55. Those states are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Those polls are what they tell the public.
The internal polls are much, much worse. We know this is the case with the black vote because Barack Obama has hit the trail to coral the black vote. I suspect by November 8 our jackass president will use the epithets "Uncle Tom" and "House Negro."
As for the Latino (Hispanic) vote, we have this from the Washington Post:
Lagging support among Hispanic voters for Hillary Clinton and congressional candidates in crucial races has stoked deep concern that the party and the presidential campaign are doing too little to galvanize a key constituency.
While Clinton holds a significant lead over Trump in every poll of Hispanic voters, less clear is whether these voters will turn out in numbers that Democrats are counting on to win. Clinton trails President Obama’s 2012 performance in several Latino-rich states including Florida, Nevada, Colorado and Arizona. In those same states, where Democrats’ goal of retaking the Senate hinge, some down-ballot Democrats remain unknown to many Hispanic voters.
That reality has prompted a flurry of criticism of Clinton’s and the party’s Hispanic strategies. Despite a uniquely favorable environment with Republican Donald Trump’s repeated attacks on undocumented immigrants, Democrats are increasingly worried that the opportunity is slipping away to meet a longstanding party goal of marshaling the nation’s growing Hispanic population into a permanent electoral force. The concerns are compounded by Trump’s recent surge in several battleground states.Latino (Hispanic) voters dislike Hillary for the same reason everyone else does.
She is a weak, nagging, lying bitch.
If she were a man, Bernie Sanders would be the nominee.
The idea that Latino (Hispanic) voters all support illegal immigration is an unacceptable stereotype minted by power-hungry liberals who seek to splinter America. I am glad that Trump challenged that orthodoxy.
The best way to hold any demographic group is to provide security and a growing economy. We haven't had that in twenty years.
