Remember when liberals, Republican candidates, and pretty much every political pundit on the planet said that Trump wouldn’t get the Latino vote? Well that sure backfired.
Trump’s support seems to know no bounds. After talking about building a wall between the U.S/Mexico border, everyone thought that Trump was pretty much done for, especially with Latinos. Well that doesn’t seem to be the case and he’s not alienated the demographic as much as it seems. According to last night’s results, Trump won a scarcely believable 44% of the Latino vote!
Amid Donald Trump’s overwhelming victory in the Nevada Republican caucuses is strong support from one group other candidates might have thought was already in their pockets.
Exit polls show that 44 percent of the Latinos who voted supported Trump.
“This is the ‘wow’ number of the night,” said David Chalian, a CNN political expert. “It is just unbelievable.”
And what’s even more mind boggling is Rubio’s finish with Latinos.
Sen. Marco Rubio finished second among the Latino vote with 29 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz finished third at 18 percent. Both Rubio, who has been counted on to draw Latino voters to the GOP, and Cruz are Latino. The next closest candidate was Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 4 percent.
“You know what I am really happy about? I’ve been saying it for a long time: 46 percent with Hispanics, No 1. with Hispanics,” Trump said Tuesday, speaking before final total were released.
This just goes to show that Trump is being picked by the people, for the people. I think that rings a bell as to a tagline for a certain office.
