Could someone explain why Trump is doing better with Latinos in 2020 than he did in 2016?

Heard on MSNBC that Clinton beat Trump by 40% among Latinos, but Biden is now leading among them by only 30%.

Biden is still winning Hispanics

Biden’s only down historically among Hispanics by about 5 percent and that’s only because Hispanics don’t know him whereas they loved Bernie Sanders.

The Biden numbers will shoot up for Election Day after Hispanics get to know him and they’ll vote about 70% for the Democrat like they always do.

You have to be a really desperate right winger to think that 44% of Hispanics for Biden versus 40% for Trump is good news for Trump, especially when every, other group is leaving the Trumpster Fire in droves!

And once again I will explain to DLers that saying "Latinos" is like saying "Europeans" as there are major differences between the various groups.

• Wealthy white Cubans and South Americans (Venezuelans in particular) in Miami

• Third or fourth generation Puerto Ricans in NYC

• Second generation Dominicans in NYC

• Fifth or sixth generation Mexicans in the southwest and California

• Mexican immigrants (legal and illegal) in California, Texas and Chicago

•  Central American immigrants all over the country

They all face different levels of discrimination, different levels of poverty and differing background in their home countries.

And run the gamut from blonde-haired, blue-eyed Argentinians to "blatino" Dominicans.

Latinos have the highest rate of small business ownership out of all demos. Trump talks a lot about supporting small business owners.

Also, Hispanics think Democrats are using immigration as a wedge issue to get elected and re-elected and will never take action on it. The anger is palpable.

Trump has repeatedly pledged to come up with a permanent solution. That is attractive to some people, to just know where there stand and lose the uncertainty.

This morning, from the Miami Herald, emerges this bullshit:

"Over 90 field organizers for the Florida Democratic Party signed a scathing letter Friday to the party’s leadership, claiming among other things that the campaign is “suppressing the Hispanic vote” in Central Florida.

The seven-page internal letter, obtained by the Miami Herald, contains eight allegations from field organizers about what they say is a lack of a “fully actionable field plan” from the Biden campaign as it transitions into the Florida party to coordinate voter outreach efforts.

This letter comes 100 days out from the general election and as recent polls show enthusiasm about voting among Latinos in battleground states like Florida could be waning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic."

Doubtless this too is being astroturfed.

White liberals are retarded, that's why.

White liberals and blacks just destroyed black communities all across America with all their retarded rioting and looting. This makes blacks 100% dependent on white liberals for their income and support.

Hispanics are laughing their asses off at the both of you.

Hispanics will be brought in to reconstruct those communities while opening new Hispanic businesses, creating even more opportunities for Hispanics. Hispanics will take over those black communities and push them out just like in LA.

Republicans and bankers will encourage this. I predict Trump will grant more visas to make this happen before the election.

Blacks cause destruction and cost society money, Hispanics build society and generate income. Blacks need to get their shit together so they can compete since the rest of the world, Hispanics and Asians, are leaving them far behind.

Wonder what's really going on there, R43. The letter claims four staffers were moved to a different location and that was a big problem, though it doesn't explain WHY moving four staffers is a problem. And the state director says no one has been moved for six weeks.

The fact that they claim Biden is "suppressing" votes makes this whole thing sketchy. Nothing they said comes anywhere close to suppressing votes. They just used that title to get attention from the media, which calls their motives into question. If it was me, I'd clear the lot of them out of there and restaff with Latino voters who are committed to working, rather than pulling publicity stunts designed to hurt the party.

Catholic and family oriented. Plus it comes with the Spanish machismo culture. It's also why the second largest group of Asians in the country - Filipinos (fun fact!) - are Republican/lean Republican.

Also, as much as the Academic crowd wants to lump all "black and brown" (read: non-white) voices in some anti-white coalition, Latinos largely do not care for American blacks, have no connection to the "black experience," give fuck all about slavery, etc. As Latinos become more "Americanized" and, in turn, America becomes more knowledgeable about Hispanic cultures, they blend well.

The majority of Americans do not have an anti-racial animus against Latinos. Latinos are seen as hard working, Christian, family-oriented, etc.

The matter of illegal immigration is a sticking point because Latinos happen to be the source of it from our border, which is why Democrats use it as a wedge issue and extrapolate it as being an entirely racial thing against all Latinos (of all backgrounds; the Uruguayan certainly has fuck all in common with the Mexican).

This, over time, will shift them Republican. BLM and looting isn't helping, just like it isn't with whites, and even other blacks.

Latinos are not a monolithic voting block. Culturally, Latinos can be all over the place with retentions of both liberal and conservative social attitudes. But generally speaking tend to be socially conservative but fiscally liberal. But they will sometimes cross over to vote for candidates who align with socially conservative beliefs regardless of whether or not the fiscal policies align with progressive thinking.

To make an interesting comparison with Asian-Americans as a voting block, AAs lean liberal with regards to social services, and are against government using religion (Christianity) to limit personal rights that aid in discrimination. AAs tend to lean fiscally conservative. However, nothing scares AAs more than Christian conservatives, even if their conservative fiscal policies are palatable. So in a sense, AAs will vote against their own financial interests because the Jesus freaks really turn them off.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's lead over President Trump in Florida's largest county is tightening, according to a new poll, bolstering the president's hopes in the must-win swing state.

The poll, from the firm Bendixen & Amandi International and the Miami Herald, shows Biden garnering 55 percent of the vote in Miami-Dade County to Trump's 38 percent. While that 17-point lead is well outside the poll's 4.4 percentage point margin of error, it's well short of then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's 30-point victory there in 2016.

The survey also found Biden and Trump statistically tied among Miami-Dade Hispanics. The former vice president carried 46 percent support among those voters to Trump's 47 percent.

There's little doubt that Biden will win Miami-Dade in the November election. Democratic presidential candidates have carried the county, which encompasses Miami and its suburbs, for decades.

But Trump doesn't need to win Miami-Dade in November to capture Florida's 29 electoral votes, and if he's successful at narrowing Biden's margin of victory there, it could help him make up for possible deficits in other parts of the state, such as in the swing counties along the I-4 corridor in Central Florida.

I have a few Latino friends from my neighborhood and many are first time homebuyers.

This is not soothing especially with Cohen's book saying Trump considers blacks and Hispanics stupid. And, here we have Hispanics for Trump. What Cohen means by stupid is probably that Trump can manipulate them.

Marist poll has Trump up by 1 in Florida as per fivethirtyeight. Another poll has Trump just 2 points behind in PA. To be frank, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida looks really really close. In addition, an article in fivethirtyeight says 30% Hispanics and Cuban Americans support Trump, 10% African-American voters support Trump and this has helped Trump survive the storm. I am at a loss at what is going on. I guess many Americans are either stupid or racists or tribal.

The Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) posted its best fundraising report in nearly two years, with more than $5.6 million raised between April 1 and Aug. 13. The haul came in across 233 contributions with the average check weighing in at just over $24,000. RPOF’s total more than doubled that of the Florida Democratic Party, which raised $2.15 million over the same stretch.

FDP’s haul was spread across 195 contributions for an average give of about $11,000.

Im cuban and I will write the main reasons why cubans vote republicans:

(1) anti communist politics is big business in miami. all cubans republican politicians get basically elected on basically this matter. they dont care about any kind of american issues, all they talk about is about cuba and that is how they get votes. besides, there are a lot of organizations and leaders that make a living with the millions of dollars they get from the goverment to free cuba. that american tax payer's money that they received to help cuban dissidents in cuba, they steal it. so they really dont want a free cuba at all, cuz they dont want to lose money.

(2) the republicans sell the idea that taughening the embargo will hurt the cuban goverment and the people will take the street and topple the goverment. they accuse the democrats of wanting to give money to the castros and thus support communism.

(3) inmorality, decadence and ungratefulness. cubans have no real morals. they enjoy all the social benefits they can get from democrats and the government while voting for republicans with total lack of guilt and shame.

(4) they truly believe that they are whites and believe that they are better than mexicans, and other latinos.they felt entittled to have all the benefits they had and took them for granted.while it is true that most cubans in miami are of european stock, there is a recent wave of inmigration of black/mulatos/ mestizos that have not yet experienced racism because they are scared of leaving in an all white area and afraid of being descriminated, so they remain in healeah and never go up north.

(5) highly ignorant third world people who associate republicans with capitalism,democracy, economic properity and civil liberties while democrats are not capitalists enough.

yes Im cuban, of 100% european ancestry, uber liberal, democrat,capitalist/ anticommunist and anti republican.

The cable media played a big role in generating fear regarding the looting, arson, vandalism and related rioting. The media and politicians were slow in condemning it. The largely peaceful protests and marches were understood and generally accepted. But when the protests often got meshed with violence, a growing number of the population have soured on mass protests that have gone on and on. Not enough compartamentalizing was done While Trump has fostered discontent, he has exploited it politically.

"Among Latina women, Biden leads Trump by a whopping 34 percentage points (59 percent to 25 percent). Among Latino men, Biden’s lead is only eight points (47 percent to 39 percent). These patterns are similar across both Latino college graduates and those without a degree.

"Stephanie Valencia, the president of Equis Research, which focuses on Latino voters, told us that its polls suggest that Latino men may have even moved slightly toward Trump this year. If so, they are the only large demographic group to do so."

"… what has alienated so many older, female and suburban voters is a key part of Mr. Trump’s appeal to these men, interviews with dozens of Mexican-American men supporting Mr. Trump shows: To them, the macho allure of Mr. Trump is undeniable. He is forceful, wealthy and, most important, unapologetic. In a world where at any moment someone might be attacked for saying the wrong thing, he says the wrong thing all the time and does not bother with self-flagellation."


If those numbers hold up, and the undecideds split, then Biden would win the Hispanic vote nationally by something like 22 points, roughly 60-38, given a couple of points to third party. Hillary won Hispanics by 38 points, 66-28. That's the reason a state like Florida is tighter than it otherwise should be, given so many areas that have shifted toward Biden.

This survey is interesting because Hispanics always tilt unusually toward a presidential incumbent, but I had never seen it broken down by gender. Maybe it has always been the males who are accounting for the bulk of that change.

Why it’s malpractice to conflate the working class with the *white* working class:

Trump won whites w/out a degree by 29 pts.

Biden won non-whites w/out a degree by 46 pts.

Trump won all voters w/ household incomes over $100k by 11, while Biden won those under $100k by 13.

Trump received around 30% of the Latino vote. Which is what Republicans normally get and which means 70% of Latinos continue to support Democrats.

(CNN)President Donald Trump picked up more Latino voters in several key battleground states than he won in 2016, according to results of a nationwide CNN exit poll.

The President captured almost half of the group in Florida, up from 35% in 2016. Former Vice President Joe Biden earned just over half of the Latino vote in the state, compared to 62% who supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton four years ago. Biden also lost support among Latino voters in Georgia and Ohio, important states to capturing the White House. The former vice president was up only about 16 percentage points in Georgia and about 24 points in Ohio, compared to Clinton's margin of 40 percentage points and 41 points in Georgia and Ohio, respectively. However, in preliminary results from Arizona, Latino voters favored Biden by nearly 2 to 1, with Trump barely making a dent. Clinton also won the Latino vote there handily in 2016.

Republicans showed strength with Hispanic Texans

Biden won the Hispanic vote by 19 points this year, according to the exits, but that’s down from Hillary Clinton’s 27-point margin in 2016. A number of heavily Hispanic counties in the Rio Grande Valley shifted toward Trump: Zapata County, to name one, broke for Trump by 5 points with most of the expected vote counted after Clinton won it by more than 30 points in 2016. The president’s share of the county’s vote jumped from 33 percent to 52 percent in his reelection bid.

Victoria DeFrancesco Soto, a politics professor at the University of Texas, told the Texas Tribune that Biden underperformed with Hispanics because he wasn’t as well known to them as Hillary Clinton and the Covid-19 pandemic limited his campaign’s voter outreach.

The Trump campaign, on the other hand, pushed ahead with its ground game, despite the public health crisis, and it paid off. From the Tribune’s Emma Platoff:

“The Valley is old school, and you need that grassroots mobilization,” she said. “And there wasn’t grassroots work, at least on the Democratic side, because of the pandemic. And arguably the GOP did have at least a bit more grassroots work because they had a different vision of public health.”

“That to me explains the Biden underperformance: He really wasn’t known, and then he didn’t have the time to make it up,” she added.

Trump, meanwhile, launched a Latino outreach initiative for his 2020 bid, she noted.

Republicans had hoped their willingness to knock on doors during the pandemic would give them an edge over Democrats, some of whom leaned on remote campaigning methods. Some Democratic strategists had been warning for weeks that Democrats were struggling with Hispanic voters in places like Texas. Chuck Rocha, who had focused on those voters for Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign, told Vox’s Nicole Narea in early September that outside Democratic groups were not focusing enough on the Latino vote.

Four months, people were sounding alarm that Democrats were getting their asses handed to them by Republicans who were registering lots of new voters and going door to door to galvanize people to vote for them, while Democrats suspended such critical campaign activity.

One of the biggest surprises of the 2020 election was Zapata County, TX. Trump became the first R pres. nominee since 1920 to carry this 94% Hispanic county. He got 2,032 votes there, double his 1,029 in 2016. Not a huge county, but Zapata was emblematic of his gains in the RGV.

MIAMI — From the time President Donald Trump took office, he focused on the Latino vote in Florida, and according to figures coming out of the state, it paid off on Election Day, especially in Miami-Dade County, the most populous in the state.

Around 55 percent of Florida's Cuban-American vote went to Trump, according to NBC News exit polls, while 30 percent of Puerto Ricans and 48 percent of "other Latinos" backed Trump. Trump won the coveted battleground state with its 29 electoral votes.

Trump drastically improved his support in Miami-Dade County, going from 333,999 votes in 2016 to at least 529,16 votes this year. Biden, however, wasn’t able to grow Democratic support in the county. Clinton got 624,146 votes there in 2016 and with 95 percent of the vote tallied, Biden had 613,086.

Trump's popularity also seems to have affected down-ballot races, with two House Democrats from South Florida losing in early ballot returns to Republican challengers:Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, the first South American-born member of Congress, was trailing Carlos Gimenez, the Miami-Dade County mayor, and Rep. Donna Shalala was trailing TV host and commentator Maria Elvira Salazar.

More Latinos will be flocking to the Republican Party when they become fed up with the exclusive attention being paid to blacks as being the only minority that counts.

[quote] More Latinos will be flocking to the Republican Party when they become fed up with the exclusive attention being paid to blacks as being the only minority that counts.

1. Latino is not a race.

2. The non Hispanic whites that make up the majority of the country prevent the needs of minorities from being addressed. There is no exclusive focus on black Americans.

3. Trump received around 30% of the Latino vote in both 2016 and 2020. Which is normal for Republicans.

4. White supremacists continue to attempt to pit minorities against each other.

Trump’s gains w. Latino voters can’t be reduced to bumper sticker stereotypes like “machismo” or Florida/Texas dynamics .. He saw a baseline shift that cut across a cross section of demos/geographies, incl. women, younger foreign-born, NJ, Wisc., Nev.

Don’t know if this has already been addressed, but the answer may be as simple as it’s very hard to defeat a president running for re-election. Trump was the president since Hoover (1932) to be denied a 2nd term when he had no significant primary opposition and/or a strong 3rd party candidate in the general election. Add the stimulus checks sent out on the eve of the election, & it’s not so hard to see why Trump’s numbers improved in certain communities.

Here's the shift between the 2016 Ohio Senate Race (R +20) and the 2020 Presidential Election (R +8). Despite the overall blue shift from 2016, Biden still did much worse in Appalachia and Cleveland's Hispanic precincts. The latter should be particularly concerning for Dems.
