Democratic presidential contender, Hillary Clinton’s plan of attack has always included a laser focus on minorities and in this case it’s Latinos she’s courting. Promising to give away tons of money and benefits has been the Democrats’ favorite way to win votes.
The fact that Republican, Donald Trump has been able to resonate with Hispanic voters has brought some concern to Democrats that their message isn’t finding fertile ground in the minds of those who have been traditionally Democratic loyalists.
The article from the Washington Post states:
Lagging support among Hispanic voters for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and congressional candidates in crucial races has stoked deep concern that the party and the presidential campaign are doing too little to galvanize a key constituency.
While Clinton holds a significant lead over Republican rival Donald Trump in every poll of Hispanic voters, less clear is whether these voters will turn out in numbers that Democrats are counting on to win. Clinton trails President Obama’s 2012 performance in several Latino-rich states, including Florida, Nevada, Colorado and Arizona. In those same states, on which Democrats’ prospects of retaking the Senate hinge, some down-ballot Democrats remain unknown to many Hispanic voters.
That reality has prompted a flurry of criticism of Clinton’s and the party’s Hispanic strategies. Despite a uniquely favorable environment with Trump’s repeated attacks on undocumented immigrants, Democrats are increasingly worried that the opportunity is slipping away to meet a long-standing party goal of marshaling the nation’s growing Hispanic population into a permanent electoral force. The concerns are compounded by Trump’s recent surge in several battleground states.
The truth is, Hillary hasn’t been able to spark the fires of hatred against Trump in the Hispanic community as easily it has been in times past. It appears that as Hispanics are becoming more knowledgeable and educated they are better able to see through Hillary’s Socialist Progressive message with much more clarity. Hopefully, more of them will come into the light of liberty and see the Conservative message as the best way forward to achieve that great American dream!
