Political Eye: Republicans pushing for Latino votes

When Reince Priebus visited Las Vegas last month, he took time to do an interview with Univision, the Spanish-language television network with the most Hispanic viewers in the United States.

It’s all part of the Republican National Committee chairman’s playbook to court Latinos in key states such as Nevada, where vast majorities of Hispanics have traditionally supported Democratic candidates.

As soon as today , the RNC plans to launch a big push for the key demographic by naming Hispanic outreach directors in vitals states such as Nevada. The RNC also plans to open a “victory office” in Las Vegas and hire a director to handle the political ground game.

Poll Shows Majority of Hispanics Now Believe Next Generation Will Not Be Better Off

A new survey by The Libre Initiative of U.S. Hispanics and Latinos tells a tale of shrinking confidence in the next generation of Hispanic Americans to be financially better off. A majority believe the persistent adverse economic conditions, the current unsustainability of government spending, government cronyism and the unfettered regulatory overreach are taking the country in the wrong direction and making the American dream less attainable.

Political sentiments aside for now, of fundamental concern is the negative outlook Hispanics now have of achieving the American dream and the shrinking prospects they have of opening up a business someday.  Alarmingly, a majority (51 percent) say it is harder to open a business in America today compared to 4 years ago, and the data also shows that a majority (52 percent) now fear that the next generation will not be able to achieve the American dream.  Similarly, a majority of respondents (51 percent) believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.

RNC won’t wait for nominee

The Republican National Committee isn’t waiting for a de facto nominee before beginning its general election ramp-up…

…As a result, the RNC is unilaterally moving ahead, using specific opportunities as they present themselves to ramp up for the fall.

By the end of April, the RNC will have staff in 10 of the 12 battleground states, Wiley said. They’ve made 750,000 voter contacts since the first of the year. They’ve had voter registration programs in Nevada and Colorado and will be doing one in Florida.
