A major turning point was what we all witnessed last summer from the Democrats. Ron Unz has long suggested that we would be better off focusing on the toxic relationship between blacks and White libtards and how the entire country seems to revolve around it.
“The chart that should frighten Democratic strategists appears in the 23rd slide of a newly released report from Equis Research, which tries to explain the Hispanic shift toward the Republican Party in the 2020 election. It shows how favorably Hispanic voters responded to a variety of Donald Trump’s positions and policies, on Covid and the economy and immigration — more favorably, in many cases, than many liberals would have expected.
Some responses aren’t all that surprising: 77 percent favorability for pandemic stimulus, 74 percent favorability for “rapid vaccine development,” 69 percent for middle-class tax cuts (who could be against middle-class tax cuts?). Some of them offer interesting evidence that Trump’s Covid insouciance, his attempt to prioritize economic reopening over precaution, was popular with Hispanic voters: “reopen economy” at 66 percent, “Covid policy set by states” at 62 percent, “living without fear of Covid” at 55 percent.
But it’s the numbers on immigration and border policy that are particularly notable. Trump’s family-separation policy, not surprisingly, polls at 28 percent. But “more border spending” gets 55 percent approval, “limiting refugees/asylum” receives 51 percent and even “reducing legal immigration” gets 49 percent.
At the same time, “more deportations” and “build the wall” poll lower, at 42 percent and 39 percent. But then recall that Trump got only 38 percent of the Hispanic vote overall. Which means that in an important sense, despite overperforming expectations, he arguably underperformed his potential with Hispanics. He didn’t even consolidate the full share of voters who favored building his border wall, let alone the share that supported other forms of immigration restriction, let alone the share that agreed with his Covid response. …”
In their issue preferences, “Latinx” voters aren’t really that different from White working class voters. The top issues are jobs, the economy and health care. The group is moderate on social issues and populist on economics. There are a lot of “Latinx” men who are also small business owners. Blacks are far more supportive of political correctness and driven by racial resentment than Hispanics.
Unsurprisingly, Latinos were alienated by the Democrats being associated with socialism, as the term is firmly associated with their own experience with it in Latin America and blacks and White libtards. Hispanics also didn’t agree with libtards on the lockdowns and vaccine mandates.
“Some 4 in 10 Latinos who voted in 2020 are concerned about Democrats embracing socialism, a Democratic polling firm reported Tuesday.
In a new report that’s a post-mortem on Latinos’ 2020 voting, Equis Labs stated that Hispanics’ concern about socialism has worked “to create space for defection” of voters.
It also has allowed Republicans to move in on Democrats in areas where Democrats have usually done well with Latinos by promoting the party as the better for workers seeking to achieve the American Dream.
Although the socialism concern is more prominent in Florida, it is not confined there, Equis research showed.
As would be expected, Latino 2020 Trump voters were more likely to say they were concerned — 71 percent — about Democrats embracing socialism or leftist policies. …”
The idea that “Latinx” voters are a racial bloc who are motivated primarily by amnesty for illegal aliens is laughable. Quite the opposite. Most don’t even bother to vote.
Note: This is a fascinating report.
Trump won a lot more Hispanics by changing the issue from immigration to COVID and the economy.
