Did the propaganda that all Hispanics somehow feel common cause with illegal aliens and are being driven towards liberal Democrats just fall apart today? PWConservative thinks that may be the case with “Hispanic Voters Now The Most Republican Voting Bloc in Virginia?”
Approval Ratings By Race in Virgina:
Official White Black Hispanic Bush 44% 16% 66% Kaine 53% 45% 26% Webb 46% 53% 16%
I don’t know the source of these numbers and can’t tell you whether the methodology used to obtain them makes this valid data or not, but if this poll is legitimate, it’s going to send shockwaves through the DPVA which has been gleefully telling folks like Dick Saslaw that pandering to illegal aliens is a sure-fire way to ensure control over their Northern Virginia strongholds and the easiest way to extend their power beyond these areas. I’ve seen a fair amount of anecdotal evidence that there are a lot of minority voters (including Hispanics) who are terribly upset with the illegal alien situation, want some solutions now, and are none too happy that some are trying to characterize their communities as supportive of illegal aliens simply because they may share some ethnic heritage with some of them. Yelling “racist” because you have nothing to argue isn’t winning folks over.
What will happen if this facade of racially-based political homogeneity somehow comes crashing down? Will DPVA have to start actually talking about issues? Hmmm.
