Hispanics are not blindly following the Democrat Party talking points anymore, and that likely spells disaster for the November midterm elections, just as economic indicators have been showing for months.
It should not be a surprise to anyone that Hispanics are fleeing the party of economic disaster; even back in the Spring, the signs were obvious that trouble was heading for the Democrat Party:

“In the wake of a recent NBC News/Telemundo poll that could be a bad omen for Democrats in the rapidly approaching midterms and beyond, MSNBC’s José Díaz-Balart hit the road in the southwest to get a feel for where Latino voters stand on the issues as well as their continued affection for the party,” Biz Pac Review reported, adding:
“According to the poll, there was a jump in support from Hispanics in favor of a GOP-controlled Congress with 33 percent or one-third in support of handing the keys over to the adults, up 5 percent from two years ago.”
“When you go to vote in November,” Díaz-Balart inquired of one Latino woman, Marissa Morentin of Phoenix. “Are you gonna be a doubtful voter?”
“I’m a doubtful voter now,” she replied, adding that as a voter, she felt “taken advantage of.”
“We’re not just going to vote blindly in one particular direction, we’re going to vote in the direction of folks who are going to be paying attention to the issues that are important to us,” said Carolina Rodriguez-Greer, who is the state director in Arizona for the advocacy group Mi Familia Vota, a civic engagement group.
“I feel like the Democratic national party looks at my demographic and assumes that I’m going to vote for them. I’m a Latina woman, that has historically been the party’s bread and butter,” Morentin said.
Díaz-Balart noted that according to the poll, the top issues with Latino voters include the cost of living.
“We see that prices are through the roof,” said Rodriguez-Greer, adding, “and we want to know what people are gonna do to help put that burden down.”
Also interviewed were Jose Arreola and Maria Batres of El Paso, Texas, both former Dems who now support Republicans because of their party’s radical policies.
“Maria,” asked Díaz-Balart. “You were a Democrat and you are now a Republican, why?”
“Because the fact that the Democratic Party has changed a lot, and I identify more with the Republican Party,” she said.
“We’re for God, country, family, and hard work,” Batres said when asked what things that she was referring to.
Arreola, who “also used to vote blue too,” said he’s most concerned with immigration and border security, two issues that rank very low with the Democrat Party.
“The fact of the matter is we don’t feel safe anymore,” he said.
MSNBC showed the truth of the poll in a recent segment, showing the drastic changes in the area:

MSNBC host started out the segment saying, “There were 36 days until the midterm elections. So we’re going to take a closer look at Latino voters who make up the nation’s largest minority voting bloc and a new NBC News Telemundo poll finds some of them are changing which party, they support a shift that could determine who takes control of Congress later after next month’s vote.
I visited three cities in three states to talk with latino voters to see what they think. Across the Southwest signs. That Latino voters, are shifting their focus to the issues instead of sticking with one political party. When you go to vote in November, Are you going to be a doubtful holder?’ he asked a Hispanic woman.
“I am a doubtful voter now. I saw what the Democrats were doing and I said, hey this guy doesn’t work for me,” the woman responded.
“We’re not just going to blindly vote in one particular direction, we’re going to vote. In the direction of folks who are going to be paying attention to the issues that are important to us,” another voter is overheard saying.
” I have a voter here, I am taking advantage of a state that had been reliably Republican but has now turned into a swing state in 2020, it went for President Biden. She voted Democrat back then, but now she says, she’s not so sure,” MSNBC host says, showing the woman he talked to later.
“I feel like the Democratic National Party looks at the right demographics and assumes that I’m going to vote for them. I’m a Latina woman that historically has been the parties bread and butter,” the woman told him, adding: “ut she wants to party to take stronger action on issues like abortion voting rights.”
He added: “But our poll found that the top issues for Latinos was actually the cost of living.”
“You were a Democrat, and you are now a Republican; why? Because of the fact that the Democratic party has changed a lot and I identify more with the Republican party, she answered.
“Like what things?” the MSNBC host asked.
“Well, we’re for God, country, family, and hard work,” she said.
“Her husband used to vote blue as well. Now, he’s also a Republican and most concerned with immigration and beefing up border security, what are the concerns that you have about immigration?” MSNBC asked.
“The fact of the matter is that we, you know, we don’t feel safe anymore,” the man answered.
