If Democrats would talk to Hispanics instead of talking down to them, they would understand why their leftist policies and woke ideology is pushing Hispanics to the right.

Why Hispanics Are Turning Right: Tradition, Family, and Love of America

Political observers and pollsters have appeared baffled in the past few years by the Hispanic community’s clear and growing affinity to conservative politics. For Hispanics who appreciate their own culture and unique place in American history, none of this is a surprise.

A Wall Street Journal poll published in December found that 44 percent of all Hispanic adults would vote Republican in Congressional elections, as compared to 41 percent for Democrats.

The same poll showed that if presidential elections were held today, 45 percent of Hispanic adults would vote for former President Donald Trump instead of incumbent Joe Biden. According to Catalist, a Democrat voter-data firm, “Trump’s share of the Latino vote grew by 8 percentage points compared to 2016, this meant that Biden carried the group by about 750,000 less than … Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee four years earlier.”

This growing conservative movement among Hispanic communities is an enigma for many analysts. The trend runs deeper than preference for Trump or even an option for specific parties. It has to do with the shared values of Hispanic communities, the profound issue of Hispanic identity in the United States, and foreign policy.

“By 2050, it is estimated that 29 percent of the U.S. population will be of Hispanic origin, turning it into the nation’s largest minority. By 2060, it is believed that the Hispanic population will reach 111 million by 2060,” commented Dr. Rafael Carcamo, a Nicaraguan American physician who is a community leader in southern California, to me in a recent conversation. “There is a distinct and rich cultural tradition that has been passed on from generation to generation among Hispanics in North America, it is differentiated and unique, but very much a proud part of America.”

Although Hispanics are proud of their specific cultures and nationalities, they share a common language that links them both to a strong spiritual tradition and a legacy of great civilizations that merged into the same cultural root, with overlapping national memories. Understanding this requires a nuanced comprehension of Hispanic history and geography, and of the term “Hispanic” in and of itself.
