    Republicans Captured A Higher Percentage Of Hispanic Voters In Midterms Than Trump Did In 2016

    The percentage of Latinos who voted for GOP candidates in the 2018 midterm elections was higher than the percentage of Latinos who voted for Donald Trump in 2016.
    President Trump pulled in a respectable 28 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2016, despite his positions on immigration and a border wall. This year, GOP candidates won 29 percent, according to the Pew Research Center’s exit poll data.
    In U.S. congressional races nationwide, an estimated 69% of Latinos voted for the Democratic candidate and 29% backed the Republican candidate, a more than two-to-one advantage for Democrats, according to National Election Pool exit poll data. These results largely reflect the party affiliation of Latinos. In a Pew Research Center pre-election survey, 62% of Latinos said they identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party compared with 27% who affiliated with the Republican Party. Among other racial and ethnic groups, a lower share of whites (44%) voted for Democrats in congressional races compared with blacks (90%) and Asians (77%). (Exit polls offer the first look at who voted in an election, a portrait that will be refined over time as more data, such as state voter files, become available.)
    While Hispanics made up 11 percent of overall voters on election day, they formed a key electorate in several Senate races, including “Texas (30%), Arizona (23%), Florida (20%) and Nevada (19%),” according to Pew. Republican Ted Cruz managed to win 35 percent of the Latino vote in his Texas race for U.S. Senate, while Governor Greg Abbott won 42 percent in his campaign for re-election.

    In Florida, a high population of Cuban-Americans propelled GOP Candidates Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis to 45 and 44 percent, respectively.

    MAGA's stances like these a factor?
    In any case, above report if non-fakenews negates fakenews media's "Trump is racist" narrative. That is not to say some of Far Right's emerging "Trump is fake racist" narrative should be accepted as divine truth either.

    How do things compare to George W. Bush's numbers? I think the Shrub would smack the Trumpster.
    The GOP as a whole may be thought to be pro Bush, so Hispancs are not totally alienated. Possibly...

    A lot of Latinos here have left communist or socialist countries. A lot more have seen the beginnings of socialism gain a foothold in their countries. Most first or second generation Latino immigrants aren't just conservative, but extremely conservative..... So let's make sure to push them away and run them off

    I was at a service this morning in a Latino baptist church (mostly Mexicans) and even the preacher said several things in favor of Trump from his pulpit. (This is not to say that I shared his sentiment... only it shows that even to the people that have been turned into the hot topic, there's more important things to them than immigration.)

    Then why do they vote overwhelmingly Demoncrat?

    The numbers may be improving but they are still very bad and I would bet that the improvement comes primarily from multi-generational citizens.

    The "let all my friends invade or I will vote communist" line cuts no mustard with me and if all they cared about was open borders they would vote Libertarian, they vote for insane communists because they believe in communism.

    You can be Hispanic and not first or second generation. Doesn't take long for our public schooling, tv shows, universities, and all the Republican Party's friendliness to program folks

    The statistics show that first and second generations voting overwhelmingly Demoncrat, I believe it is those whose families have been here for generations that have a higher rate of voting Republican.

    If you think our culture has a negative effect on people's politics you should think about the effect of growing up in a socialist/communist country.

    Honestly it's probably some of both. I was making inferences from all the people I know first hand.... Likely different in the aggregate.

    I was just saying there's lots of potential with
    the Hispanic vote.

    My experience, as well. Most of the Hispanics I know are more hard-working & conservative than others I know who consider themselves "conservative".

    And?

    We know that some are Republicans, the problem is that most are not and if they are allowed to come in unlimited numbers we will become North Venezuela.

    Is it the Democrat's fault? Have the Republicans who rule the Presidency and both houses of Congress been reducing that spending?

    Also note that most immigration now is from Asia- not Latin America.

    We should drastically cut ALL immigration, we can't expel citizens but we should encourage secession or even expel states.

    It isn't about race zippy, Asian and European immigrants are a problem too.

    The only reason race is even involved in this thread is that hispanics identify as a separate group and the media looked at their voting habits.
