Will Latinization Bring Moderation? Hispanic American Swing Voters (Part 2)
How’d you hear about The Purple Principle? Click here to answer our one question survey: https://fluentknowledge.com/tpp-survey
How large a role will Hispanic voters play in 2022 elections? (Hint: It’s big.)
How are the major parties appealing to this diverse voting bloc? (Not so effectively.)
Can Latino candidates turn down the heat on our political rhetoric? (No sign of that yet.)
In the 2nd episode of our Hispanic American Swing Voters series, these questions frame our discussion with veteran Democratic strategist Chuck Rocha, and Mike Madrid from the anti-Trump GOP side. They’ve teamed up to co-host the insightful podcast, The Latino Vote.
“What's nice about this podcast is we're both at an age where we don't care about the parties anymore,” confesses Madrid.
“Donald Trump brought us together to fight a common enemy,” adds Rocha.
Despite extreme positioning, the GOP has been picking up Latino candidates and voters. We discuss that trend and look at how these races could put forth less extreme rhetoric – if more Latino campaign experts were involved.
