(AP Photo/Alex Brandon) The Wall Street Journal released a surprising poll on party preferences among Hispanic voters. It finds that support is split evenly between Republicans and Democrats, with 37% supporting each party and 22% undecided.
Democratic pollster John Anzalone says that “Latinos are more and more becoming swing voters. … They’re a swing vote that we’re going to have to fight for.” Anzalone conducted the WSJ poll along with Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio.
Latinos have always been fertile ground for Republicans, given their largely conservative position on social issues and the family. For one reason or another, however, the GOP failed to attract a significant number of Hispanics until 2020, when Donald Trump’s “Opportunity Agenda” and Democrats fumbling their advantages led to a decent share of Hispanics voting for Republicans.
For our VIPs: What’s Driving Latinos to the GOP?
But now, it appears that Hispanic men, especially, are attracted to the GOP because of economic issues. Hispanic men said Republicans had the better economic policy, by a margin of 17 points. Hispanic women gave the nod to Democrats on economic issues by 10 points.
If these changes are reflected in the national vote in 2022 and 2024, it will represent a sea change in American elections and could tilt the electoral map in Republicans’ favor for the first time since the early 2000s. Hispanic voters in the survey ranked economic issues as the priority for Mr. Biden and Congress to address. Hispanic men said Republicans had the better economic policy, by a margin of 17 points. Hispanic women, by contrast, said Democrats had better economic plans, by a 10-point margin. A majority of Hispanic men said they would like to return to the policies that Mr. Trump pursued as president, while a majority of Hispanic women said they would rather stick with Mr. Biden’s policies. Democrats continue to play the immigration card, believing that Hispanic voters want more illegal immigration and a path to legality for illegals already here. But the polls clearly show Hispanics are more engaged when it comes to economic issues than anything else.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
