Democratic Party pandemonium is breaking out as identity groups are belatedly realizing that Hillary could give a rat’s ass about them. With reports that Mrs. Clinton is on the ropes in the all-important electoral state of Florida, the alarm bells are clanging to ensure that Latinos will turn out at the polls. This is a huge development for the Dems with mushrooming concerns that a key demographic that they had long thought that was locked down thanks to fifteen months of propaganda demonizing Donald Trump over his immigration policies.
According to the Washington Post “Among Democrats, deep concern about Clinton’s Hispanic strategy”:
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, where Democrats’ goal 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.
With the electoral map beginning to shift in Trump’s favor despite the months running 24/7 media onslaught to define him as a racist lunatic it’s obvious that Americans are embracing the only candidate who speaks to their economic concerns.
The Democrats’ only plan to speak to the destruction of the American Dream is to pander to the lazy and lowly by singing a siren song of a $15 an hour minimum wage for fast food workers. It riles the rabble but doesn’t cut it with those who have seen good paying jobs offshored by the millions and low wage foreigners imported to further depress wages and steal jobs. Hell, even McDonalds is dumping American white collar workers from payrolls in favor of H1-B visa carpetbaggers.
It’s going to take more than calling for a taco truck on every corner (a chicken in every pot) and a slimy insider running mate who habla Espanol to land the Latino voters and this bodes ill for Queen Hillary.
