Weeks ago, when Republican Latina Mayra Flores won a House seat in a deeply blue area of southern Texas, it became apparent that the Latino shift towards Republicans is real.
Now the Washington Post is warning Democrats that a similar thing is taking place in Nevada.
This could be disastrous for Democrats and a huge boon to Republicans in the fall.
FOX News reports:
Washington Post op-ed warns Latino voters switching to GOP is ‘huge problem’ for Nevada Dems
Washington Post columnist Henry Olsen gave a dire warning to Democrats that Latino voters in Vegas are leaving the Democratic Party.
“It’s usually a bad idea to bet against the house, and Clark County Democrats are Nevada’s political house,” Olsen explained in a July 27 op-ed. “But Lady Luck has a wandering eye. If Latinos move rightward enough, the GOP stands ready to count its winnings and break the Democrats’ bank.”
He illustrated that Latino Americans in Clark County, Nevada have been burned by Democrat policies amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“There’s also reason to think that a voter backlash over the economy will be stronger in Clark County than elsewhere, hurting Democrats with working-class Latinos. The Las Vegas economy heavily depends on tourism because of its world-famous casinos. They were hammered during the pandemic due to closures, capacity limitations and reduced airline travel,” he wrote…
“National polls suggest that Latinos are moving sharply away from the Democratic Party. If that plays out in the midterms, it’s likely no place will be impacted more than here in Nevada’s fastest-growing metropolitan area. And that could wipe out much of the advantage Democrats have built in this blue-trending state,” he wrote.
This has the potential to be a game changer.
