The left-leaning MSNBC was amazed when a new survey revealed that a surprisingly large percentage of Hispanics voted for Republicans in November’s midterm election.
In fact, the survey conducted for The Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago divulged that nearly one in three of the 7,738 Latino voters surveyed casted their ballots for GOP candidates just over two years ago.
“In November’s elections, 32 percent of Latinos voted for Republicans, frustrating Democrats, according to AP VoteCast data,” The Associated Press (AP) announced in a report published by NBCNews.com.
Latinos warming up to Trump
Democrats might have a stranglehold on the Latino vote in a number of areas across the United States – including California and New York – but more and more Hispanics are liking what politicians touting conservative agendas have to say … including President Donald Trump with his tough-on-immigration stance.
“Though Latino voters are a key part of the Democratic coalition, there is a larger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than many think,” AP pointed out. “
Journalists at MSNBC could not understand the rightward trend and how Trump’s unwavering stance against immigration and for the border wall has not hurt his popularity amongst Latinos.
“Data from November’s elections show the GOP’s position among Latinos has not weakened during the Trump administration – despite the president’s rhetoric and policy,” MSNBC tweeted Friday.
A Latino Trump convert who pastors an evangelical suburban church in Denver, Colorado, Pedro Gonzalez, did not let Democrats’ pressure and pro-immigration anti-border wall rhetoric sway his faith in the president and his fellow Republicans.
However, just a couple years ago when Trump was duking it out against his Democratic rival for the White House, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Gonzalez’s opinions about the president were largely reinforced or molded by the anti-Trump news media.
“Initially repelled by Trump in 2016, he’s been heartened by the president’s steps to protect religious groups and appoint judges who oppose abortion rights,” AP reported. “More important, Gonzalez sees Trump’s presidency as part of a divine plan.”
Gonzalez has little doubt that God has blessed Trump for standing in defense of biblical principles – which Democrats and their ungodly agenda unabashedly attack on a regular basis when it comes to abortion and the LGBT agenda.
“It doesn’t matter what I think,” the 55-year-old Hispanic Christian leader insisted about Trump, according to AP. “He was put there.”
