One lesson Republicans and Democrats can study after this presidential election is to not paint Latinos with a broad brush, political commentator Ana Navarro advised CNN this night.
Navarro’s recommendation comes after Democratic organizers and operatives warned that the celebration was prone to a poor efficiency in Florida’s closely Cuban Miami-Dade County, and that it hadn’t been reaching almost sufficient Latinos within the Rio Grande Valley to show Texas right into a battleground.
These fears proved to be based, as Joe Biden fell effectively in need of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 efficiency in these areas.
“In Florida, and across the nation, it is 31 flavors of Latinos,” Navarro mentioned. “After we discuss in regards to the Latino vote, it may be very misunderstood and misguided to simply attempt to paint it in a single broad stroke. I believe we allowed ourselves to outline the Latino vote yesterday by what occurred in Miami-Dade. It cratered for Joe Biden and it was an train of a yr of constructing by Donald Trump; of working the neighborhood, coming up right here, speaking about socialism, speaking about communism, and it paid off for him.”
It was a unique story for Biden in Arizona, the place “700,000 Latinos voted,” Navarro mentioned.
“His whole, his common in Arizona was 75%,” Navarro mentioned concerning the variety of Latinos that turned out for Biden in Arizona this yr. “The numbers across the nation have been significantly better for Joe Biden than we’re speaking about.”
