Democrat Pro-Choice Message Failing with Hispanics in Texas
Prominent liberals, including the group "Battleground Texas," have recently launched efforts to try to "turn Texas Blue." But these kickoff events, which have coincided with elected officials in Texas trying to pass pro-life legislation, may have come at the most inopportune time.
As even Politico noted, there is "just one problem" with these efforts: "Latinos as a group oppose abortion more strongly than most other voting groups."
Texas state Senator Wendy Davis galvanized liberals when she filibustered a popular bill that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks and made abortion clinics safer. But those issues are not appealing to Hispanic voters, whom Democrats in Texas have to win over to turn the state blue....
Ah, John Y., so the Latino Romish Church is anti-abortion. So? They are also anti-Christian, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF) They will also come to realize that the GOP position of being anti-food stamp and anti-illegal immigration is not in tune with their goals. They will decide that the Democrat party sans abortion, which they can have with their own candidates could blend in quite well with Liberation Theology. Don't worry their priests will wise them up to how they should vote, etc.
