    Government shutdown increased Trump’s Latino support by a huge 19%. At the same time support has dropped a little among whites/blacks.


    New poll shows a stunning turn in Trump’s approval among Latinos


    A new poll released Thursday showed a remarkable gain in the approval rating for President Donald Trump among a surprising demographic: Latinos.

    The NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll says that 50 percent of Latinos approve of Trump performance as president, an astounding 19 percentage point gain since their last polling in December, where he had 31 percent approval among Latinos.

      Polls don’t mean much unless you understand the why.

      My guess is that for whites/blacks the drop is about the shutdown (or being afraid to say they support the shutdown). There could be some upset that there won’t be the great Wall of China on our southern border, perhaps. Their support will bounce back as soon as shutdown/border security is resolved.

      The Latino support increase is significant. That support is policy based. They want border security and their jobs/wages protected against illegal invasion, drug cartels, and MS-13 gangs. Many (if not most) of them will stay with Trump support depending on what else comes up over next few years.

      I wonder if some of this is what Brad Parscale was seeing in his recent polling when he said Trump’s support was highest he had seen?

        Many Latinos also came in legally and they are very resentful of the illegals. My sister-in-law is Dominican and a staunch Trump supporter. A while back I had an interesting one hour chat with my sister-in-law, a Venezuelan woman, an older Cuban woman and a younger Cuban women. We were all Trump supporters and vehemently anti-Chavez/Maduro, except for the young Cuban. She knew very little about politics except for some ridiculous talking points and was quickly silenced. This was in Miami. It just shows how the polls are desperate to hide those numbers.

    The Democrats are accusing President Trump of selling the North Pole to the Russians!

    Translation: Hillary sold the shifting magnetic North Pole to Putin!

    Mueller to investigate Russian collusion!/s

        Nice. Senator Cruz is stepping up and logically explaining that “In 2013 All Senate DEMS voted in favor of 350 miles of southern border wall.” Sen Cruz says it’s the radical left base of the House that is petrifying the DEM leaders into altered non-logical minds. I believe him.


        • WSB says:

          Well, in 2013, Senator Cruz was for all H1 B visas, the CFR, TPP/TPA and handing out teddy bears with Glenn Beck on the Mexican border. He never said anything about needing a serious border wall, drugs, or cartels. Nuf said.

          So, now that he humiliated himself in front of all Republicans at the convention in 2016, he should just try to hang on as a Senator. Although I still do not know why a foreigner has a seat in the Senate. He was already a Senator when he denounced his Canadian citizenship in 2015. How does that work?

          Oh, and let’s try to uncover his CRBA, Consulate Report of Birth Abroad. Because this testifies that Ted is not a natural born American. He still has a birth certificate in Canada.

    Mexican state police and soldiers arrested two Sinaloa Cartel operatives with an arsenal of rifles, ammunition, and a grenade on Wednesday. The pair were involved in drug smuggling activities near the California and Arizona borders.

    BuzzFeed (I know) has an article saying the Special Counsel has “evidence” that say Trump ordered Cohen to lie before Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow deal.

    The “suspect” Mike Rogers was on CNN (I know, I know) with Cuomo onight. I didn’t catch all of his rambling, but Cuomo made a big deal about desperately reaching out to him to come on his show tonight. What I saw was Rogers claiming that because Trump never talks badly about Putin, there must be something going on.
    The article the other day about Rogers being the informant on the transition team made me stop and watch while I was channel surfing.


    • Proud American from Texas says:

      Oh, Cuomo also stated that this would be a political battle because Mueller wasn’t going to charge PDJT. That’s why Guliani was separating PDJT from his campaign’s possible collusion.
