Latino Voters Come Out In Record Numbers

Latino voters have been both registering to vote and voting early in larger numbers than ever before. In battleground states like Florida and Nevada in particular the Latino vote has been overwhelming and it is forecasted that tomorrow on Election Day Latinos will also show up at the polls in record numbers. This does not bode well for the Trump campaign who is not exactly the favorite to win the Latino vote. 76% of Latinos say they are voting for Hilary Clinton. This in spite of the fact that many Republican leaders, such as Arizona governor Jan Brewer, dismissed the threat posed by Latino voters by saying that they don’t vote. Well, they are now Jan.

It’s not really a surprise. Latinos, immigrants, and Mexicans in particular have been targets of the Trump campaign since day one. His main policy point is that he wants to build a wall between Mexico and the United States. It’s no wonder that Latinos have felt motivated to vote in numbers they never had before. It’s not universal, of course. 24% still might vote for Trump or Gary Johnson but, for example, Trump isn’t doing as well with traditionally Republican Cubans in South Florida. That’s because he’s kind of an a-hole. So, my fellow Latinos, I urge you if you haven’t already to get out and vote tomorrow and ask yourselves who really has your best interests at heart. It’s probably not the guy who was officially endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan.
