Editorial from the Heritage Foundation on how Hispanics are conservative. Nice try!
But here's what you won't hear: This conservative wave included some Hispanic-American voters. That fact inconveniently flouts the conventional wisdom - that liberal candidates can consider Hispanic votes to be in the bag. It interrupts the usual narrative. So it must be ignored or explained away.
This is juicy as unsubstantiated assertions go. Liberals are ignoring inconvenient facts. There must be a conspiracy, right? Well, no. The overwhelming majority of Latinos support the Democratic Party, and will do so for the foreseeable future to greater or lesser degrees. Of course, this does not mean that all do, so there are plenty of Republicans as well, though they are the exception.
But this editorial goes even further, by saying without providing evidence that Hispanics are inherently more conservative than other people: "Conservative values run deep among Hispanics." This is a jumbled mess of an argument, as "conservative values" can mean basically anything you want. Regardless, we know that if we measure support for values by voting, then Hispanics support values associated with the Democratic Party, conservative or not.
