New polling has confirmed Democrats’ worst nightmares hinted at during the 2022 election and the Virginia gubernatorial election that swept Glenn Youngkin to the governor’s mansion: Latinos are tiring of Democrats’ woke policies that ignore jobs and family. The latest poll confirming this trend is from Quinnipiac. Gloria Romero, former Democratic leader of the California State Senate explains how bad this is for her party in The Daily Mail:
Just in time for the upcoming celebrations of Cinco de Mayo, Latinos are sending unmistakable mutterings of ‘Que @#$%&! es eso?’ — a spicy Spanish version of ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ — to the Biden Administration and the Democratic Party.
The most recent tolling of the political bells was revealed in last week’s Quinnipiac poll, showing only 26 percent of Latinos approve of the way President Joe Biden is handling his job.
That’s a nearly 10-point drop of Biden’s approval rating among Latinos from April 6th when he garnered a paltry 34 percent.
Latino discontent with this administration is obvious in even the bluest of states.
According to the April 13th survey results released by the Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies – only 51 percent of Latino voters in the Democratic stronghold of California approve of the job Biden is doing.
That’s a precipitous drop compared to a 69 percent approval rating the year prior.
Latino consultants (the political coyotes) are lining up to get hefty financial contracts, promising the party elites that they’ll bring those bad, wandering sheep back to the Democratic plantation.
But it’s too little, too late.
Not content to be ‘the little brown ones,’ Latinos — from Cuban Americans in Florida to Mexican Americans in Texas and beyond — are giving double middle fingers to the Democrats and their political coyotes.
Trust me – this is my community.
I am a Latina and the former Democratic majority leader of the California State Senate.
The first woman to ever hold that position.
I represented one of the most Latino and Democratic areas in California: East L.A., the birthplace of the Chicano youth walkout over racism in education in the 1960s.
Yet I, too, am on the brink of leaving the Party and the roots of my disillusionment run deep.
The media first began paying attention to this shifting political allegiance when significant numbers of Latinos defied the Democratic party label in 2016 and cast a vote for Donald J. Trump.
But I, and many others in my community, have been observing this change over time.
Seventy-one percent of Latinos supported President Barack Obama in 2012 then 66 percent went for Hillary Clinton and 59 percent voted for Joe Biden in 2020.
You see, the problem for Democrats isn’t the messages or the public relations and it’s not for a lack of brown-skinned consultants.
The problem is the party itself — and what it has come to represent.
Historically, Democrats have claimed to be the party of the working-class—the little guy—and pocketbook issues were essential.
John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama (in his first presidential run) were aspirational, and they embraced the American Dream.
Action Line: “Not anymore.” The Democratic Party has changed, and much like the Italian, Irish, and Polish Catholics who eschewed the party to become “Reagan Democrats,” when the party abandoned its family values, Latinos appear set to do the same. Stick with me to see what happens in November.
