|CNN Reporter Interviews an Unaccompanied Undocumented Minor Child at Undisclosed Border Patrol Camp|
According to a new report at CNN, despite the over-the-top coverage and numerous misleading news stories about happenings at the southern border, a once believed guaranteed segment of the midterm Blue Wave vote doesn't seemed to have materialized. If you are one of the head honchos in charge of the cable news programing, this has to be a bitter pill to swallow considering the non-stop drumbeat of CNN’s 24/7 anti-Trump coverage.
"Democrats have hit an unexpected speed bump in their drive to regain control of Congress: unsettling signs that the party may not generate as much turnout or support among Latino voters this fall as it expected.
Despite a procession of provocations from President Donald Trump — from ending deportation protections for so-called “Dreamers,” young immigrants brought to the country illegally by their parents, to his now-terminated policy that resulted in children being separated from their undocumented parents at the border — a growing number of Democratic strategists are privately concerned that their candidates are not consolidating Latino support as much as they anticipated in several key races."Allow me to translate that last bit from its native, unintelligible, CNN-speak. What they’re really saying is: “Despite the fact that we spent 2 years coughing up an endless stream of news stories telling you that you’re supposed to hate Donald Trump, you Latinos haven’t been listening. We’re very important and we don’t understand how you can possibly ignore our epic 700-day rant.”
In case you didn’t get the message, they’ve even outlined some places where people are, apparently, doing a little too much “thinking on their own.” There is, CNN suggests, still time to turn this around.
"While cautioning that there is still time to reverse the trend, they point to signs of wavering Hispanic support and engagement in House districts in Texas, Nevada, Florida and California, and in Senate races in Texas, Nevada, Florida and Arizona.
“I still think it’s a little too soon to push the panic button, but having said that, we are not seeing the types of numbers with Hispanic voters that we should be seeing with the most hostile person to ever hold public office against Hispanics as the President,” said Fernand Amandi, principal at Bendixen & Amandi International, a Democratic polling firm that specializes in studying Latino voters. “And that in and of itself is a concern. I’m flabbergasted.”This basically translates to: “How dare you ignore our tribalist identity politics? We simply can’t understand why you’re not acknowledging our superiority. You’ve been told what to think, and yet you’re thinking other things!!” And when some guy named Fernand Amandi starts using words like 'flabbergasted' you should know right there things gettin' real round the hacienda.
Just last week there was encouraging news about rising African-American support for Trump, and now we have this. Are you listening CNN? MSNBC?
