There is no doubt in my mind that the Hispanic voting population, in Colorado and across the nation, will play a significant role in determining the winners and losers of 2016. As a conservative, Hispanic Republican, it’s often a challenge to share the message of the Republican Party, but when I’m given the chance, Latinos across the state engage and appreciate the idea of less government, lower taxes, and personal responsibility.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 – October 15, and I’m personally approaching this month with a focus on sharing a conservative message with Colorado’s Hispanic voters; when shared, our message resonates with the fastest-growing minority population in this state.
In 2014, Democrats won the Latino vote, but Republicans were able to gain a large share of the electorate. In post-election polling of the Georgia and Texas gubernatorial races, Republicans took more than 40% of the Latino vote (PewResearchCenter). However, in House races nationwide, there was hardly any improvement in Republicans’ Latino turnout from 2012.
Hispanics made up 8% of the nation’s voters in 2014. That’s a percentage that can absolutely win or lose critical elections across America, and right here in Colorado we saw that it did. When we look back at the top issues of 2014, the economy ranked highest for Latino voters, alongside immigration, education, and jobs. These top line issues aren’t much different than any other sector of the voting population. So maybe it’s not what we are saying, but how are we saying it.
As we look toward 2016, Republicans and Democrats alike are looking to boost their credibility with Latino voters. Each party is investing heavily to draw the Latino voter, but when I speak to my friends and family about lower taxes, less government, and personal responsibility, the message resonates. It isn’t a flashy flyer, or a wave of auto-dials that moves the needle; it’s personal engagement. I’m urging my friends to focus on personal engagement this month and throughout the 2016 election season.
You may be asking yourself what all of this means, and the bottom line is this…
Hispanic voters have the same worries and concerns as any other American. We are concerned about the economy, we are concerned about immigration, we are concerned about the education of our children, and we are concerned about having and keeping jobs. So I’ll be sharing my story, and I’ll be sharing a conservative message with the Latinos I engage. I’m very much looking forward to these personal conversations.
There is too much at stake in 2016 not to engage with a clear message of prosperity and freedom that Hispanic voters can relate to.
