The conventional political wisdom is that people of Hispanic descent hate Donald Trump. This line of thinking is born out of a corrupt identity politics that believes blacks and Hispanics have big government leftism imprinted on their DNA. It’s also wrong. It’s morally wrong to treat people as unthinking, sub-rational puppets who can be moved like pawns by political oligarchs.
New data also suggests that the specific assumption about American Hispanics is incorrect as well: Donald Trump’s popularity with Hispanics exceeds both Romney’s and McCain’s and is growing. According to a Big Data analysis of over 1 million Hispanics, Donald Trump has a 37% approval rating. Romney received 27% of the Hispanic vote in 2012 while McCain got 31%. The study also dovetails with some anecdotal evidence we have presented of Hispanic support for Trump.
