(TheConservativeNews.org) – Mainstream media outlets and opposition politicians love to focus on President Donald Trump’s perceived mistreatment of minorities. We’re constantly told he doesn’t care about members of the black, LGBT, or Latino communities, and that these people will only suffer if he wins a second term. This makes it even more refreshing to see members of these groups ignoring the anti-Trump narrative and showing their support for the president.
This is exactly what’s currently happening in Latino communities across the US. Recent polls tell us President Trump’s performance with Hispanic voters this November is likely to considerably improve, compared to 2016.
Targeting Swing Voters
Presidential elections are as much about statistical analysis as anything else. The electoral college system leaves some smaller states with a lot of voting power, and the ability to productively target demographics within these states is vital. The Latino community in Florida provides us with a perfect example.
Florida is a crucial battleground state. While its voters went for Donald Trump in 2016, they picked Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012. Taking Florida in 2020 would give Trump’s re-election chances a huge boost, and the large Latino communities based there could make a drastic difference.
Republican Strength vs Democratic Missteps
Often, elections are decided by the vulnerabilities of the loser rather than the capabilities of the winner. At a time when strong leadership is more necessary than ever before, ineptitude will not play well. This could be a factor in November, as the gaffe-prone Democrat nominee continues to alienate voters.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise when President Trump speaks his mind; that’s the sort of leader he is. While many people mistake his direct style for a lack of empathy, many others see it as what enables him to perform so effectively in the role of president. As more and more voters come around to the latter way of thinking, we should expect to see support grow for another four years of Trump.
