  • Texas Latino Conservatives PAC Solution for Non-Voting Legal Status on Right Track, PEW Study Shows

    February, 2020
    by V. Lance Tarrence, Jr.:

    A new study by the PEW Research Center in Washington D.C. of Hispanics in the US  showed that the Texas Latino Conservative PAC solution for non-voting legal status is on the right track.

    Legal status is now the top immigration policy goal for Hispanics  in the U.S. and 76% of Latinos say improving security of our country's borders is 'very or somewhat important'.  This study also showed that 59% of Latinos identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party, while 30% affiliate with or lean toward the Republican Party. 

    Hispanic Republicans want to improve border security by 86%.

    This study is the largest recent study of its kind of U.S. Hispanics (December 3-23, 2019) concerning legal status and, for the first time, segments Republican (i.e., conservative ) and Democratic Hispanics.

  • Democrats Should Be Worried About The Latino Vote

    From The Atlantic (January 14, 2020 by Christian Paz)

    Political organizers who have been in the field in the past few months canvassing the Hispanic vote provided a new insight into the run-up to the 2020 elections.  Three key points in the article are: 

    •  "The first warning sign of the new year came three days into 2020.  (President Donald Trump) ...speaking at a rally of conservative evangelicals in south Florida...what the Democrats missed was the significance of the rally's location: the home of the country's largest Hispanic evangelical congregation."

  • TRUMP STATES SET TO GAIN ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES. SOUTHWEST TO GAIN HOUSE SEATS.

    January 4, 2020
    by Lance Tarrance, Jr.

    New state- by- state population estimates released at the end of 2019 in advance of the 2020 US Census count showed more signs that Southern and Western states will gain new political power when the 2020 Census is finalized (the next census count begins on April 15, 2020 by December 15, 2020).

    The “where” is important because in the states where the population has geopolitically shifted, the Hispanic vote is set to be the swing vote in many of them. The number of U.S. House seats is set at 435, so if some states have lost population relative to others ( and now have lost House seats for the next 10 years), it also means other faster growing states will gain U.S. House seats and increase their relevant political power for the next 10 years1.

    The chart below shows where the political power has shifted towards states with strong Hispanic populations, such as Texas, Florida, and Arizona.

    V. Lance Tarrance, Jr.

    As we enter the 2020 year, two of the biggest events will be the 2020 U.S. Census and the 2020 U.S. Presidential election.
