  • More on Hispanic Voter Trends: "Hispanic Voters Are Normie [i.e., Normal] Voters"

    Posted by · August 15, 2022 12:30 PM · 1 reaction

    Another essay by a highly respected intellectual in Washington DC continues the drumbeat on how liberal thinkers ( i.e., most Democrats ) are out of touch with the Hispanic culture. This time new national data proves his point. For example, Hispanics chose the statement "America is the greatest country in the world" 70% of the time to only 23% for the opposite view, while very liberal Democrats are the reverse; 66% not the greatest and only 28% the opposite. No wonder the headlines in political press outlets talk of the rising of the Hispanic vote and now the realignment of Hispanic vote. -- Lance Tarrance

    Hispanic Voters Are Normie Voters

    by Ruy Teixeira, August 11, 2022 in The Liberal Patriot

    Democrats are having a great deal of trouble holding on to Hispanic voters. In 2020, running against Donald Trump for a second time, in the midst of a COVID/economic crisis and after  the George Floyd summer of “racial reckoning”, Democrat Joe Biden actually did quite a bit worse among Hispanic voters than Hillary Clinton did in 2016. According to authoritative estimates from Democratic big data firm Catalist, the Democratic advantage among Hispanic voters slipped by a remarkable 16 points (two party vote) between the two elections. That doesn’t mean the Democrats lost the Hispanic vote. Far from it—they still got a solid majority of that group’s vote. But the size of their majority was whittled down considerably and appears to be falling further.

  • Biden at the Border

    San Antonio human smuggling tragedy emphatically shows the need for change in Immigration policy

    The worst case of human trafficking in modern U.S. history stands as the latest effect of President Biden’s immigration policy as it relates to America’s southern border.

    As of Tuesday morning, the death count stands at 50 after a tractor-trailer was found in San Antonio, Texas, near Lackland Air Force Base, packed with migrants trying to make it safely into the U.S. Initially it was reported that 46 were dead, most apparently from heat stroke, with 16 taken to hospitals.

    NBC News is reporting that “On Tuesday morning, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said the death toll had risen to 50. He said 22 of the dead were Mexican nationals, while seven were from Guatemala and two from Honduras. The nationalities of the remaining 19 people had yet to be confirmed.”

    This comes just days after by a Trump appointed federal judge ruled last Thursday in a 160-page order that “the Biden administration’s new policies limiting deportations violate standards set by Congress,” according to Courthouse News.

  • Hispanics Question Asylum

    a·sy·lum [əˈsīləm] NOUN 1. (POLITICAL ASYLUM) the protection granted by a nation to someone who has left their native country as a political refugee:

    This definition from the online Oxford English Dictionary is the  crux of the major issue on the border today.  This week the Supreme Court allowed the Biden administration to end the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy whereby Central Americans and certain Cuban and Haitian asylum seekers were required to stay in Mexico to have their asylum claims considered.

    The procedure is for those coming to the US as political refugees to file a claim with Immigration.  Then they are provided with a judicial hearing.  Sometimes the process may take three years before it gets to a judge.  Before Remain in Mexico was implemented the claimant would be allowed to remain in the US and given work permits.  With Remain in Mexico they were prohibited from entering and if entering through Mexico were returned to Mexico where they had to wait for their hearing.    The Biden administration has revised the policy to allow the claimant who makes a credible fear assertion to enter and remain in the US.

  • June 2022: A Big Month in Texas Political History

    Posted by · June 28, 2022 5:04 PM

    June of 2022 was a big month in political history for the state of Texas as a special election in South Texas brought a Republican Hispanic into the U.S. Congress. It was a special election that will have to be replayed in November.

    The key item from this victory was that almost half of the early turnout were from voters who ordinarily would vote in the Democratic Primary.  Secondarily, the Democrats in Washington D.C. were blamed for this unexpected loss.

    Read the two following articles which will give you the big picture of how important this special election was in Texas history.

    One of the most complete and in-depth national polls so far this year was released recently (field date April 19-26, 2022) of a national sample of almost 1,400 respondents. The survey was supported by NPR/PBS and conducted as the Marist Poll. The headlines that came out of this survey were, of course, that President Joe Biden’s job approval rating was a consistent 51% disapproval and that the generic U.S. House ballot for the upcoming midterm elections now favors the Republican Party (47% to 44%). That’s quite a change from their previous survey in September 2021, which had given the Democrats a +8% lead on the generic U.S. House ballot.

    However, when digging deeper into the statistical group results, there was some surprisingly interesting Hispanic data that was not reported. Hispanics are 14% of the national registered vote sample population, which is just enough sample size to pay attention to their specific results. Each statistical table breaks down the Anglo-Black-Hispanic-Other so you compare the today’s political universe “up close and personal“.

  • Texas Monthly Looks at Why Democrats are Losing Texas Latinos

    Posted by · May 11, 2022 5:51 PM

    “South Texas, lately, has become an object of political fascination for pundits, some of whom have not taken the time to understand even the most basic facts about the region.”  This is how Texas Monthly began their article (Sept 2021) which was entitled, Why Democrats Are Losing Texas Latinos.  Their in-depth investigation started out with how the new mayor of McAllen, Texas could explain how a Hispanic electorate could go Republican and, after some 20 pages, concluded that there were three hypotheses (see below).  As we approach the May 24th runoff in Texas and the forthcoming midterm elections in Texas this November, this analysis deserves closer reading.

  • Earlier Book by Leslie Sanchez on How to Communicate with Hispanic Voters is more relevant than ever

    Posted by · May 02, 2022 2:52 PM

    In 2007, some fifteen years ago, Leslie Sanchez published a book on why Hispanics and Republicans need each other, called “Los Republicanos1”.

    Leslie Sanchez currently has a career focused on corporate marketing and political messaging and is currently a CBS commentator, among other things. She has also been offering advice to the Texas Latinos Conservatives PAC, as she believes strongly in our mission and how important messaging will be in the next election.

    Her book, then, was way ahead of its time because it outlines how to campaign for the Hispanic vote and the book represents a written “code book” for a universal Hispanic strategy that can be used in any Conservative campaign.

    The last Presidential election revealed stunning Hispanic results from the Rio Grande Valley to Florida, and it was a big conservative shift of Hispanics --the most talked about political demographic shift in decades. Since there is a growing audience of conservative Hispanics, the appearance on the scene of “Radio Americano “ is a fascinating new development in U.S. politics (see “Spanish-language Conservative Network Readies Launch as Latino Voters Shift Right“, The Week, March 7,2022 ) As the new broadcasters have stated, America needs a “FOX News in Spanish” to counteract the liberal bias of Univision and Telemundo.

    It is also worth noting that many Americano Media presenters are strong women which highlights the forward thinking of the new management. Recent polling by the company has shown that Hispanic women have shifted to the right, more than Hispanic men. The new network so far has 29 commentators and about 10 reporters and will broadcast on SiriusXM satellite 153 with plans for a future “Rush Limbaugh in Spanish“.

  • Governor Abbott Makes News at TLC Tough Tejano Awards Luncheon

    Governor Greg Abbott gave the keynote speech at TLC's Tough Tejano Awards Luncheon in San Antonio, where TLC honored Representative John Lujan with this year's Tough Tejano Award.

    Here is coverage from the San Antonio Express News:

    At event, Gov. Greg Abbott vows to win more than half of the Hispanic vote in Texas

    April 6, 2022
    The Hispanic community has become “antagonistic” toward the Democratic Party, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said during a pit stop in San Antonio.

    He vowed to win more than half of the Hispanic vote in the upcoming gubernatorial election to applause Tuesday at the Texas Latino Conservative Lunch.

    Abbott said most Hispanic people are in favor of securing the southern border and funding law enforcement agencies such as the police — in contrast with most Democrats, including his opponent Beto O’Rourke.
    “With your help, we will keep Texas red,” he said to an audience of about 150 at the Witte Museum’s Mays Family Center. “We will ensure that we turn South Texas red.”
