NBC LATINO News breaks story on SOMOS INDEPENDENTS in light of Latino GOPers leaving the GOP’s new anti-immigrant platformby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Sep. 04, 2012, under 2012 Arizona Elections, 2012 Congressional Races, 2012 Presidential elections, 2012 United states senate races, Hispanic Latino Vote, Independent voter centrist moderate swing vote
NBC Latino News is ON IT!
They broke the story before the launch date of SOMOS INDEPENDENTS. As many of you might already know, Independent voters are surging across our Nation and that does not exclude Latino who are tired of being taken advantage of by both sides of the aisle. That said, the Republican Party has been more hostile toward Latinos than the Democratic Party.
Latinos should put themselves into “woo status” or be identified as a free agent when it comes to politics. For instance, Sen. John McCain spent only around 1 million dollars in Hispanic outreach during the 2008 Presidency but spent millions more in Independent outreach. That clued me into how political candidates are more concerned about Independents than any other group.
Can you blame Latinos for leaving the Republican Party? I sure can’t….in fact, I can understand why they don’t want to be associated with the modern-day Dixiecrat Repubican Party anymore. Abraham Lincoln is sure to be turning in his grave at the newly adopted restrictionist and protectionist views the GOP has taken under its wings.
From NBC LATINO:
Blase points to the fight to replace Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an entrenched Republican, as a perfect example of a race where Democrats can’t win — but Independents can.
“If you look at the Maricopa Country demographic, 36 percent of registered voters are Republican, 35 percent are Independent and only 29 percent are Democrats,” she says. “Democrats have had 20 years to oust Arpaio to no avail,” she adds emphatically.
“This is the first time in my life that I’m going to vote for a Democratic president,” she says.
“I think Independents will be the real American party. People who want what’s best for the country — not for the party.”
