Tomato Can - You just argued past me without addressing anything whatsoever. Most latinos are religious and socially conservative. That is a fact. Republicans should be well positioned to attract those sorts of voters (and GWB actually did) but nowadays they don't.
The argument that latin americans are somehow "predisposed" to socialism is some utterly specious, downright silly shit. Ask Cubans in Florida how they feel about socialism. Most latin american immigrants are coming to the US because their home country is a hellhole and they're looking for something better.
Latinos are NOT conservative. They vote based on perceived economic interests. They favor LARGER government and care less about individual freedom than whites do.
That aligns them with the democrat party.
The GOP has NEVER won latinos. EVER. Not ONCE.
florida cubans are a unique group with a unique history. You can't generalize about other latinos based on florida cubans.
You can't generalize about other latinos based on cubans? Your entire argument is broad racial generalization!! You're saying "they" favor larger government and care less about freedom than white people. That's utterly moronic and in fact Cuban immigrants are the PERFECT counterpoint to it. They had socialism in their home country and they came to America specifically because they rejected it.
Truly a brilliant electoral strategy. Write off an entire demographic of tens of millions as being somehow "predisposed" to socialism based on vague generalizations about countries they came from which they ARE ACTIVELY FLEEING.
"Truly a brilliant electoral strategy"
You mean the strategy that Trump used to completely rewrite the electoral map and beat a candidate that was given a 95% chance of winning. Yes, very stupid to win elections using what works.
" Your entire argument is broad racial generalization!!"
Okay, please post the evidence I am wrong. Which was the national election the GOP won latinos in? and why do latinos favor the furthest left candidate in the democratic party? It's not immigration policy since all the democrat candidates have effectively the same policy.
Your idea is that republicans need to promote mass immigration of groups that have left wing political views(there is ample data on their political views.) and that by promoting the dispossession of GOP voters, the GOP will convince latinos to switch parties despite there being zero evidence this will happen.
BTW true or false, you are a jewish democrat?
The strategy Trump used to be one of the only presidents to lose the popular vote and who won by ekeing out razor thin victories in a handful of swing states? Yea, double down on that totally reliable, utterly future-proof strategy.
You are (maybe intentionally) mistaking correlation for causation and attempting to ascribe some sort of genetic/racial basis to socialist political beliefs. This is infantile and moronic. Do Scandinavians share this genetic predisposition? What about Eastern Europeans prior to 1991? The Vietnamese?
If you had bothered to put 5 minutes of thought into this (particularly given the actual thread topic) you might have considered that support for socialism tends to grow in places with a large underclass and very high economic inequality, which describes many modern latin american countries.
I never said "republicans need to promote mass immigration" and I have no clue where you got that. And there is plenty of evidence the GOP can draw latino voters. GWB got 40%. Hell even Trump who was as big a douchebag as you can be to them got 28%.
I am a democrat but I am not jewish. And I can't wait to hear why you think that is relevant.
