Trump Does No Worse Than Romney, McCain With Hispanics

No worse than Romney or McCain means that Trump’s willingness to speak out against Mexican illegals, criminals, and rapists, and his proposals to enforce the law the US already has, and deport illegals has cost him nothing in Hispanic votes. The Hispanics who were going to vote Democrat–most of them–will do so anyway.

    Don’t worry, I’m sure there are a ton of Anglo voters in Hispanic countries that keep voting in Republicans/conservatives so it all evens out.

    This is a vital fact that our “Conservatives” and too many “Republicans” ignore at their own peril. Trying to win the votes of those who will never ever vote for you by watering down your policies will always bring defeat. First you lose many of your true supporters and never convert the leftists to your cause. I hope Trump does not fall into this same trap. Romney fell for it big time, not that I ever saw him as a strong candidate in the first place.

    • The CPC will become the Liberal Party, they will compete for most politically correct budget honours.

        Yes, and in my view much the same happened when the Reform Party was “merged” with the CPC. Contrary to many here I saw and see Manning as a spineless sell-out and Harper wasn’t much if any better when it comes to selling out the most basic principles of conservatism.

          The problem with Harper was that he was too timid.
          He should have been bolder.
          If the CBC was gone right now because of Harper how could Trudeau reconstitute once we all knew how the world would have looked without it?

            Nah, I think sometimes that he was most revealing when he was quoted during the coalition crisis that the longer I’m prime minister the longer I’m prime minister.
            Whatever, he saved us from Martin, Dion, Layton-Dion-Duceppe and Ignatieff government.

          • mauser 98

            yes , true … but he had clear majority .. could have fragged the CBC and a hundred other sacred cows
            term Canada Day still burns me ..he could have changed it back to Dominion Day…..crickets
            ..Stevie like the Republicans are afraid of what the media will say

      The mistake conservatives have made is that they don’t make the argument.
      Trump says what many think needs to be said.
      It’s only once you can have the conversation out in the open that you can change minds.
      Actually, McCain was the clown and Romney was the milquetoast.
      Trump is the hammer.

        Throughout the campaign, Trump has said things that were branded outrageous by the media and his rivals of both parties. But when listeners digested the contents of these statements, they started saying, “You know something, he’s right.”

          Trump changed my mind on free trade.
          Actually, not so much as change it but he articulated a gut feeling I had that we were sold something that isn’t true.
          I just hadn’t been able to put it into words myself.
