NBCLatino Including the next us citizen 11'000,000 + dreamers good grief democratic dreamers. NBCLatino Dems are DONE! NBCLatino Horse manure NBCLatino No surprise. Key wird: Wall NBCLatino Would be kind of hard to team up with people who despise your presence in the country. NBCLatino Biting the hand that feeds them for someone who would lock their kids in cages? 🤔 hmmm… literally insane!

NBCLatino Because they work hard and finally realize what's right!!! NBCLatino NBC “News” can’t be trusted. 🤦🏿‍♂️ NBCLatino The GOP will not attract the Mexican voter until the GOP dumps its racist rhetoric against Brown people! NBCLatino Unless I missed it in the article, does the poll have a breakdown by groups amongst Latinos? For example, Latinos of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent not always but tend to support the Democratic Party while Latinos of Cuban descent tend to support the Republican Party.

NBCLatino Ha ha, if they are watching what’s going on and seeing how racist are trying to deny rights, and they hate border, and we know who primarily comes through the border, so it’s in there best interest to stay, even from a practical matter 🤔

NBCLatino At least you stopped saying Latinx this time NBCLatino As long as they are legal and can show a valid State Issued ID, I don’t care who they vote for. But just like the ghetto rats, they will vote properly or not at all!!! NBCLatino Hahahaha. Keep telling yourself that. Stay the course. NBCLatino Im not really excited about what the dems are doing but im not voting Republican!

NBCLatino certainly not before the rest of their families get here NBCLatino Imagine if his open borders policy backfired. NBCLatino Wonder when will Democrats will start calling Latinos White Supremacists too 😂 NBCLatino Please keep up the good work, it was mind blowing when I opened my wallet and saw the profits of $7,690 😮 from the investment of $1000 thanks Geoffrey100k

NBCLatino In other words I can expect them to shift 5 points to the Right in 2022 NBCLatino Let me explain to TheDemocrats why. Most of the countries in the Latin America are considered conservative, in the political spectrum. Americans that have parents with latin roots grow up under this kind of influence. That’s why you’re still out.

NBCLatino Most of us know better than to vote for Republicunts.

In recent polling, Hispanics identify with Democrats over Republicans by about 30 percentage points — a similar margin to previous years.

Hispanics’ identification with Democrats edged down in 2021 along with the larger adult U.S. population. But Latinos continued to identify with Democrats over Republicans by about 30 percentage points, according to an analysis by Gallup senior scientist Frank Newport. “We do not see a major shift at this point on the party with whom Hispanics nationally identify,” Newport told NBC News. Gallup interviewed 1,338 Hispanics in 2021 asking whether they consider themselves Republican or Democrat and which party they lean toward. In the first six months of 2021, 58 percent of Hispanics responded Democrat or lean Democrat, while 26 percent said Republican or lean Republican. In the final six months of 2021, that changed to 54 percent Democrat or lean Democrat and 26 percent Republican or lean Republican. That averaged out to about a 30-point advantage for Democrats for the year. Interviews were in English and Spanish, depending on preference. “There clearly are conjectures and hypotheses and assertions that the Hispanic population is becoming more Republican, so it’s important to check on long-term trends,” Newport said. The Gallup analysis noted that the behavior of Hispanic adults nationally is different from Hispanic adults who are registered to vote and turn out to the polls. Lower voter registration rates among Hispanics leave room for differences between the Latino population at large and smaller groups of Hispanic voters. “However, it’s reasonable to assume that broad trends in Hispanic American’s party identification parallel trends in voting patterns,” the analysis stated. Trends in individual states also may vary from national trends, it said. In 2020, then-President Donald Trump saw a boost in Latino support in some states, such as Texas and Florida. The level of Hispanic support for each party has fluctuated since 2011, but there has been “no indication of a major shift,” the Gallup analysis found. “The 30-point Democratic advantage in party identification among Hispanic adults in 2021 is, in fact, greater than the 26-point Democratic margin in 2011,” it stated. In fact, “if there has been any change worth noting, it has been the modest decrease in the percentage of Hispanic people who identify with or lean toward the Republican Party since 2011-14,” Gallup’s analysis stated. The analysis found that Hispanics are more likely to identify as independents, 52 percent, than adults nationally. But in follow-up questions, those who identified as independent were more likely to say they lean Democrat than Republican. The share who identify as independent shows that about half of Hispanics have a “weak allegiance” to either party or none at all. Thirteen percent continued to say they are independent after the follow-up questions on how they lean. “This, in turn, could suggest that the voting choices of Hispanic Americans may be at least slightly more up for grabs than is the case for Americans as a whole,” Gallup stated. Latino voting surged in 2018 in the last midterms. Latino voters were with Democratic Senate wins in Arizona and Nevada. The next indication of where Latino voters are putting their support will be the midterms in November. Follow
