Trump Making Huge Gains With This Group

President Trump is drawing a significant part of his support from Latinos – almost 1/3 of them. Fox News reports:

There is a larger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than many think, as the GOP’s position among Latinos in America has not weakened during the Trump administration — this, despite presidential rhetoric against immigrants and the party’s shift to the right on immigration.

In November’s elections, 32 percent of Latinos voted for Republicans, according to AP VoteCast data. The survey of more than 115,000 midterm voters — including 7,738 Latino voters — was conducted for The Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago.

Other surveys also found roughly one-third of Latinos supporting the GOP. Data from the Pew Research Center and from exit polls suggest that a comparable share, about three in 10 Latino voters, supported Trump in 2016. That tracks the share of Latinos supporting Republicans for the last decade.

The VoteCast data shows that, like white voters, Latinos are split by gender — 61 percent of men voted Democratic in November, while 69 percent of women did. And while Republican-leaning Latinos can be found everywhere in the country, two groups stand out as especially likely to back the GOP — evangelicals and veterans.

The fact that Latinos that are evangelical and/or veterans seriously lean towards Trump shows that these Americans identify with shared values over ethnic affiliations, which throws a wrench in Democrat plans for a blue wave.

Well duh! Legal immigrants who came here the right way and came here to assimilate, they absolutely stand with our President. They FLED their crime ridden countries because they truly wanted opportunity & a better future for themselves and their families.
Today, we’re being inundated with the worst of the worst. If not, they would also come the legal way. It must be a real slap to the face of every single immigrant that followed our laws. There’s only a couple reasons why illegals would enter OUR Republic illegally… They either know they will not qualify OR they are of the school of thought that we OWE them and they do not need to regard OUR laws.

University of Chicago? And what kind of a fair shake would Trump ever get from Chicago? As I have always maintained: A poll will always say what the Poll taker wants it to say based on the demographics it is taken in. Why don’t they take the same poll in Texas or North Carolina? Because it would show an actual INCREASE in Latinos voting for Trump! That’s why! But being taken in Chicago, it actually shows that Trump held his own. Even in Sheitcago!

I do not believe that all Latinos are not educated. I see many illegals who have professions, in there own country, but come here to avoid the socialist governments there. The Democrats have been trying to turn United States into another socialist country, All the countries that followed that path, have become third world countries, not able to support anything for their people. Why are the Democrats so willing to destroy, the best country in the world, only to empower themselves. This is what they are doing, using inside information about companies, to make investments, growing wealthy on the backs, of the American poor and needy.That is why Waters has so much money at this time, she hasn’t done one good thing, for the people who voted her in. She lives in grandeur while her constituents live in squalling conditions. This is what the Democrats do, they don’t care about the people, not wanting border security, is a prime example.

I know a person with a PhD in Psychology, who worked in Market Research for around 20 years. Her comment was that if you go after a desired result, instead of an honest one, you can ALWAYS “cherry pick” the poll information and get the result you want. YES, there ARE honest polling groups out there, but unless you know a lot about them you might not want to put “a lot” of trust in them by your vote. Just be careful HOW MUCH Trust you put in the answers you see online.

It stands to reason as they are the ones most impacted by the invasion of foreign nationals.

I know many who came here legally of ALL nationalities who came here legally and support him including my own Iranian son in law who’s angry at the tinkerbells for supporting them with phony rhetoric and don’t mind saying so. ALL the left wants to do is allow them in for their votes to skew elections and these people know it and they came here to assimilate and are proud of it. Oh, and they also know corporate America and other businesses want them to drive wages down so they can garner more profits and our bought and paid for government supports their efforts.

Shut the border down, let only those with United States passports come in. Keep it shut until the communists come to the table and give us what we want.
