The Trump Hispanic Meltdown Never Happened
Excerpt: But while the media and pundits predicted doom for Trump’s chances with Hispanics,, a funny thing happened on the way to the voting booth. The Trump Hispanic meltdown never happened. According to exit polls, Trump lost Hispanics 65–29, besting the performance of the mild-mannered and courtly Mitt Romney, who, despite being about as likely to utter an ethnic slur as Pope Francis, lost Hispanics 72–27. In fact, the demographic in which Trump most struggled compared with Romney was in white college graduates, which was more than offset by his overwhelming dominance among in white non-college voters. While in the long term the GOP obviously needs to perform better among Hispanics, if you’re surprised that Trump bested Romney, it’s probably because you’ve been drinking the pro-amnesty Chamber of Commerce Kool-Aid.
