The truth about Donald Trump’s performance in the 2020 election was more stunning than Americans realized.
It completely changed how many viewed the election.
And this blockbuster report showed Trump won more votes in 2020 than anyone thought.
For years it was treated as an article of faith in the corporate media and Republican establishment that Donald Trump’s strong stances on illegal immigration were racist and would alienate Hispanic voters.
Exit polls in 2020 showed Trump outperforming expectations and winning 32 percent of the Hispanic vote as Trump won the highest percentage of nonwhite voters for a GOP presidential candidate since 1960.
But the exit polls did not fully capture how strong Trump ran with Latinos.
After every election, Pew runs a survey where they match respondents with the voter file to get a true sample of the electorate.
Pew’s recap of the 2020 election found Donald Trump actually won 38 percent of the Hispanic vote.
Trump made gains among Hispanic voters. Even as Biden held on to a majority of Hispanic voters in 2020, Trump made gains among this group overall. There was a wide educational divide among Hispanic voters: Trump did substantially better with those without a college degree than college-educated Hispanic voters (41% vs. 30%)…
…While Biden took a 59% majority of the Hispanic vote, Trump (with 38%) gained significantly over the level of support Republican candidates for the House received in 2018 (25%).
Donald Trump defied the “experts’” predictions because Democrats and political operatives in both parties tend to view Latino voters as a monolithic group that sees every issue through the prism of granting amnesty for illegal aliens.
In 2020 Donald Trump blew up this myth – that the Republican establishment helped create with its autopsy report after the 2012 election – by winning nearly 40 percent of the Hispanic vote through his “America First” agenda.
Trump ran on law and order, reopening the economy, and cracking down on illegal immigration.
In fact, Trump’s “America First” immigration policies to end catch and release and make illegal aliens wait in Mexico while their asylum cases played out had their greatest appeals in the counties directly on the border.
Hillary Clinton won Starr County, Texas by 60 points in 2016.
Starr swung 55 points towards Trump in 2020 with Joe Biden narrowly carrying Starr by just five points.
Donald Trump became the first Republican since reconstruction to win Zapata County.
Anti-Trump activists in the corporate media falsely claimed Trump’s populist message was really just white grievance politics.
Trump’s message appealed to working-class Hispanics the same as it did whites with Trump carrying 41 percent of Hispanic voters without a college degree.
If Donald Trump runs for president in 2024, he will start with a massive base of 74,000,000 voters.
And that base includes a sizeable portion of Latino voters that Trump won over with his appeals to support law enforcement, end coronavirus lockdowns and protect border communities from the ravages of illegal immigration.
