Democrats Get Bad News as South Texas Latinos Vote GOP

Democrats hoping to make waves in the Lone Star state just got some bad news. Despite campaigning hard to win Hispanics over, the left just is not seeing the results they want. Instead, quite the opposite is happening as more Hispanics in South Texas are voting for Republican candidates.

The Daily Wire reports:

Last year, McAllen experienced the biggest shift in party vote share, toward Donald Trump, of any large city in the country save for Laredo, 150 miles to the northwest. In both border towns, Trump improved on his 2016 results by more than 23 points. … no area fled further into the GOP camp than South Texas, where 18 percent of the state’s Hispanic population lives. 

“In Starr County, just upriver from McAllen, Republicans increased their turnout by almost 300 percent between 2016 and 2020,” the Texas Monthly adds. “While Hillary Clinton won there by sixty points, Joe Biden barely scraped out a five-point victory. In Webb County, home of Laredo, Trump cut his 2016 margin of defeat by more than half. And in Zapata County, which didn’t even have a local Republican party, Trump became the first GOP presidential candidate to win since Warren G. Harding was on the ballot a century ago.”

“Of the 4 million new residents that Texas gained in the last decade, nearly 2 million were Latino, while only 5 percent were White,” The Washington Post reported in August.

The Monthly posited that many Texas Hispanics “actively reject being cast as immigrants. In 2020 ignorance of these facts embarrassed state and national Democrats. While Hispanic South Texans are proud of their Mexican heritage, many do not consider themselves to be ‘people of color’ at all. “

Democrats have been trying to win over the traditionally red state for some time now to no success. It seems that the “blue wave” can only go so far.

Welcome to the Party that, except for a few RINOs, actually uses their brains and, for the most part, common sense prevails!!

The only party with a working brain, the opposite “party” is nothing but destruction and revenge! The Demorats want to enslave Americans and allow immigrants from all over?? to be the top citizens in the US for just showing up. The rest of the natural citizens are to pay all to the taxes and foot the bill for the entire world. Figure it out!!!

I am fed up with any political party that is in power at any time. Buying votes with taxpayer dollars. What really bothers me is you think that I don`t have the intelligence to see what you are doing to our country.

WELL SAID DENNIS!!!!!!!!! Couldn’t have said it better!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Republicans have gotten to weak don’t even fight anymore! But I get txt and emails to donate to their sorry A’s. Both parties don’t even fight for the ppl! I was seriously hoping that there would be a Third party the PATRIOT PARTY! I’ve read where they wanted to start one but McConnell and Graham heard about it and said we don’t need a Third party. I think their scared and the Republican Party should be. It’s Obvious the Democrats are trying to delete them completely and take over. I hope not but Republicans don’t stand up for anything!

Republicans are the other side of the coin if you vote for ones policies your voting for the other policies because no matter the laws passed when all is said and done a really unpopular law or agenda when in the rare occasion it’s repealed is touted as a win when in actuality the parties are working in unison if one party goes to far the other screams and vows to change things when in actuality very little is changed as we creep ever closer to a country of socialist communist

Also we Hispanics are very conservative in thought and deed. We do not believe in identity politics, we are pro life, we believe in the 1st amendment, we DO NOT want anyone speaking for us or telling us what to think. WE KNOW WHO WE ARE. WE ARE CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.

Go south Texas, get and vote those strong, passionate conservatives in office. There are too many spineless people in the Conservative party right now. I’m talking to you Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

Mitt Romney only got into office with Trumps endorsement then promptly stabbed him in the back typical RINO

South Texas votes conservative. That’s what I’m talking about. We vote on policy not name calling and labels we want someone who can kickass, fearless against our enemies and tells it like it is, no lies or softies

You know that $80 billion worth of United States equipment we left behind in Afghan, well that was Biden’s gift to the Chinese so they would not blackmail him and his son Hunter

Biden has not been good for the American family, maybe the illegals, Biden has not been good for our energy reliance systems maybe the Russia energy industry, Biden has not been good for our farmers/food chain supply, but great for China’s food chain and industry. United Kingdom and Australia should be concerned about Biden interest, as much as they are about the Chinese. The current way Biden has treated our allies, our borders, crime, corruption should be a warning for the future events. United States is set to announce a new alliance with Australia and the United Kingdom that will focus on sharing advanced technologies in an effort to combat Chinese aggression. Hope all our Generals feel the same way as well as Hunter Biden who represents the biden retirement plan.

Advanced technologies hmm good way to cover with words it’s actually government control over every aspect of the citizens lives.
even if everyone got on the same page to vote these a holes out you vacant bet it would make little difference.
There may be some show laws or repeal of certain laws just to make all the voters think something is being done but if you compare 40 or 50 years ago with today’s laws mandates and policies you would realize that it’s been going on for decades and steadily get worse by the day the year the decade

Democrats can not seem to grasp the idea the Mexicans or as they refer to them LatinX which includes all Spanish speaking people failing to realize that the so called LatinX are a proud people proud of their country proud of their heritage and do not consider Spanish speaking people from other countries the same as Spanish speaking people in their country as well as the work ethic they have which is they prefer to work to support their family if they’re unable to support their families via working to support them and working with an eye on improving the environment they live in such as better education for their children better housing for their family all provided for by their hard working family members. They are also aware that millions of people being let in without being vetted brings crime to their neighborhoods as well as it is diluting the work force if employers have way to many choices on replacing them by hiring others that got in to the. Oh try do to the policies of the current administration it also dilutes the pay they can get through their hard work as well as to many workers for the jobs they do you are directly affected when you have to many applicants for a single job and your chances of gainful employment or greatly reduced.
