Best Interests!

Dems and MSM (pardon the redundancy) alarmed that Trump’s rhetoric doesn’t seem to have changed the GOP’s support among Hispanics:

VoteCast data from the Associated Press showed that 32 percent of Latinos voted for Republicans at a time when many pundits and most Democrats hoped that the demographic group might lead an electoral revolt against President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.
“Data from November’s elections show the GOP’s position among Latinos has not weakened during the Trump administration, despite the president’s rhetoric and policy,” read the tweet from MSNBC.

Of course, the media has spent a decade ignoring the fact that Hispanics poll even more hawkish on border security than anglos do; the GOP loses them on mass deportation. Even the most conservative Latinos frequenlty have someone in the family who came here illegally.

  1. The problem with identity politics is selecting the right categories for your survey.

    The poll takers treats everybody in America having a Hispanic last name as part of the same group. They’re stunned when some don’t follow the party line. Mexicans support strict border controls because they hate Guatemalan gate-crashers.

    Expecting all Hispanics to like Democrats is like lumping all NFL Central Division football fans in the same category, then being stunned to learn Packers fans hate the Bears. Wrong category = wrong result.

  2. Newsflash to MSNBC, there is one group of people who hate illegal immigrants more than Trump. Mexican/Latino Americans who immigrated here legally.

    Also Joe the NFC Central hasn’t existed since 2002 when the Texans came into the league. You must not be a big football fan
