I can only relate my personal experience regarding the Hispanic vote. I married into the Hispanic culture. My wife's vast family are all legal citizens and have been for quite some time. For years they struggled through the legal process to gain their citizenship but they did and they are now proud Americans. However, they are vehemently opposed to Trump and everything he stands for. They don't appreciate the rhetoric that come out of Trump's mouth much less the inhumane treatment of their fellow countrymen at the border. They understand why they come. It's not to leach off the system like Trump and his right wing media lapdogs would have you believe.

Ironically, out of all her family there is only one Trump supporter and he is what one would refer to as an "angry white male". It's puzzling to all of us why he married her sister in the first place. Needless to say it has caused a great amount of tensions in their immediate household. All of us are eager to cast our votes to oust Trump next year.

Anyone who thinks that there is a significant number of Hispanics that are conservatives and will vote Republican are only kidding themselves. Cuban-Americans are the only exception.

LOL yes they say they want to fight poverty and then they do everything they can to import more of it.

Remember the people's pain is the politician's gain!

That’s more than one out of every four who voted for him. To hear some of you guys talk about it, you would think it would be one out of one hundred.

AND, he did better than Romney with Hispanics, so they rejected a mainstream republican in higher numbers than they rejected Trump. Wall and all.

Huh? The ones that didn’t get offended by the “rapists and murderers” comment before he was president, are not going to be offended by anything he has done since then.

The Caravans? Really? There are people who were in favor of them?
