The left and its media have done a fine job of painting Latinos as vehemently anti-Trump. Of course, it all started with the now-presumptive GOP nominee’s first controversial comments about illegal immigration last summer. And the left has continued to play this up, highlighting the Latino so-called “protesters” (plants from the left may be more accurate in many cases, so we’re learning) at Trump rallies waving Mexican flags.
But beneath the media narrative, individuals are telling a different story. While the left may want us to believe Democrat anointed one Hillary Clinton has Latino support all locked up, there is evidence to suggest this isn’t the case.
Like the stunning admission one Latino radio host made to the Queen this morning.
Via The American Mirror:
While Latino syndicated radio host Enrique Santos gushed over Hillary Clinton during his interview with her this morning, he confessed his family doesn’t feel the same.
Speaking to Clinton on the phone, Santos told her, “My father’s voting for Trump because he says he can’t trust you. My mother says you’re a crook and my brother says you should go to jail.
Santos is an example of liberal media who gush over Clinton but don’t necessarily reflect that sentiment of the wider populace. Of course, this is just one anecdotal example, but how many more are there out there just like this?
As we reported recently, big data analysis of a sample size of one million Hispanics — about as far from anecdotal as you can get — shows support for Donald Trump on the rise, and not far off from Hillary Clinton’s Latino support.
Of course, Hillary Clinton blames Republican attacks on her in the media– rather than her record — for the negative view some have of her.
“How would you convince them to sit on your side of the field?” he asked.
“Well, number one, I would ask them not to be listening to the negative attacks that have been relentless against me,” she responded.
She then said they should trust her because she had a higher approval rating when she was secretary of state.
“People who know me don’t pay attention to the kind of ridiculous, untrue attacks that are in the media against me that come out of, you know, Donald Trump and other Republicans,” Clinton said.
But has there ever been a presidential candidate — besides, perhaps, Barack Obama — who’s had more favorable handling from the press?
Santos concluded the interview by calling Clinton “sweetheart.”
