Nobody could have predicted this…except that Donald Trump did.
It is a fact that seems to be lost on the left wing media and the Democrat Party, but a large portion of Latinos are against illegal immigration. They came legally and resent those that didn’t. They are the ones actually losing jobs to illegals.
Here in Texas, Tejanos, many of which trace their roots back to before the arrival of white Europeans, have absolutely zero tolerance for law breakers and moochers. They are culturally conservative and care about the same issues as everyone else…jobs, economy, security and education. Illegal immigration is bad for all of these and they know it.
So while the media and the pundits are baffled, the rest of us shouldn’t be surprised that Donald Trump is resonating with a growing number of Latino and Hispanic voters. This is an incredibly diverse group that has never fit well with the Democrat’s identity politics.
A black Brazilian-American, a mestizo Bolivian-American and a white Cuban-American are unlikely to have much in common with each other, none the less with non-English speaking new arrivals from Mexico and Central America.
FOX News has looked at big data and confirmed this. Trump is far more popular with these voters than the media would have you believe…
Numerous articles and Op-Eds have discounted his so-called “rise” among Latinos by pointing out the flawed nature of polls. Back in February, after claiming a win with 46 percent of the Hispanic vote in Nevada, critics quickly challenged the full sample size of voters captured to disregard the number. Most recently, Latino Decisions published an article called “Why Polls On Latinos Get It Wrong,” confirming that current ways of polling are under-representing Latinos’ voice.
Clearly, conventional political research is in question, but what if big data analysis reveals Trump’s rise is real, based on a sample size of over 1 million Hispanics?
Based on big data analysis over the last 30 days as of June 1st, Trump reports 37 percent of Hispanic positive sentiment versus 41 percent for Clinton. Surprisingly, the candidates tie in negative sentiment across Hispanics at 38 percent, discounting the fact that Latinos default as Democrats or are completely turned off by Trump’s off-color comments. After all, over 50 percent of Latinos identify as political independents.
