A recent New York Times article discussed why Hispanics are leaving the Democratic party. The article identified that both the working class and the youth were most likely to vote Republican this year even though they are registered to vote Democrat.
Hispanics make up over 30% of California’s voters. Because of the large portion of Hispanic voters in California, my campaign for U.S. Senate has been monitoring the Hispanic polling data very carefully. Long before the Wall Street Journal wrote an article on Hispanics moving toward the Republican party, my campaign had already seen this trend in California polls.
Back in December of 2021, our pollsters realized not all Latino voters were leaving the Democratic party. As we dug into the cross-tabs, it became clear that Hispanics over the age of 50 were staying true to Biden and Newsom, while Hispanics under the age of 50 could not stand the failed policies of the woke progressive agenda. When we first saw this trend in the polling, we thought it was just a fluke. However, as we continued to study the cross tabs of other major polls throughout California, it became clear Hispanic voters under the age of 50 were splitting with their family tradition of voting Democrat.
Our polling data has consistently shown Hispanic voters under the age of 50 understand the Democratic party has left them and that the party is no longer concerned about the needs of California families and workers.
While this shift in Hispanic youth will play a minor role in the predicted national Republican ‘Red Wave,’ it will have a major effect in upcoming California elections. With over three million registered Hispanic voters under the age of 50 in California right now, this demographic is large enough to fundamentally shift The Golden State from being a deep blue state to a state that leans Republican in one election. Yes, you read that right — the future political direction of the state of California lies in the voting preferences of the Hispanic youth.
Gavin Newsom and the Democratic party understood Hispanics were leaving the party, which is one of the reasons why they poured tens of millions of dollars into the Hispanic media markets during the Recall election. However, as Biden, Newsom, and the woke progressive agenda continue to put the needs of their rich elite donors above the needs of the people, no amount of advertising can convince them to vote to destroy the American dream for their families. Every day the woke progressive agenda is further separating Hispanic voters from the Democratic party.
The future is bright in California for the Republican party as Hispanics discover that their Hispanic values and Republican values align. As Hispanics look for a new political home, they will find that Republicans are ready to stand beside them and support their dreams and ambitions of realizing the American dream.
While the Republican party will be helping Hispanics to realize their American dream, Hispanic youths will destroy Newsom’s dream to be the next President of the United States.
