    Because they are religious. And they’re very conservative. For years people have been saying that when Hispanics joined a political party, it would be the Republican Party because their values are so similar.

    Since then, we have Trump.

    Some Mexicans don’t rape.

    Hispanics are breeders.

    Mrs. housekeeping.

    Lies about the caravan.

    Have republicans thrown away a chance to grow their party?

    Many Hispanics are Republicans. They don't like illegals taking their jobs either.

    Under bush Republicans were 90% white. I bet that number has grown since then. Especially since the party seems to have shrunk. I doubt if you’ll find many Hispanics in the Republican Party or many blacks or many gays. See the theme here?
    Some is a lot different than many.

    Trump can marry only so many foreign nationals.

    Why do Republicans think Hispanics will flock to the GOP?

    Some Mexicans don't rape.

    Trump using terms like "Mrs. Housekeeping"

    The miserable and pathetic response and lies about what happened in Puerto Rico.

    How will these actions attract Hispanics?

    Culturally, Hispanics should gravitate towards conservatism.
    They are religious, family oriented, hard working

    But Consevatives chose to abandon them and embrace their racist right wing

    It's basically Anglo-Saxon vs non-Anglo-Saxon in this country.

    REAL Republicans are Anglo-Saxon Individualists, for the Tax cut revolution.

    Basically everybody else are Collectivist in comparison, and don't really care about the Tax cut revolution.

    It's just some Italian & Polish Catholics in the U.S.A have also voted Trump because of social Conservativism like anti-Illegals, anti-Refugee, anti-Abortion etc.'

    But, a lot of us don't really care much either about the Tax cut revolution.

    As for Hispanics, they're generally very Collectivist & sensitive to the anti-Hispanic rhetoric of Trump.

    So, absolutely, Republicans WILL NOT EVER get much Hispanics, or Blacks, or Asians because they're Collectivists.

    When legal immigrant people open and run businesses in the U.S.

    They quickly learn the Republican party is far more small businessman friendly than the tax and regulate everything, "You didn't build that business", Democrat party. ... :cool:

    The Hispanic's in our area are saying how pissed they are at the Dem's for how they used the Dreamers.
    How that might effect their votes , we'll see by tomorrow.
