Stop the Hispandering

Someone please get this vital information to Reince Priebus and the rest of the GOP establishment:

Hispanic voters are not as crucial to Republicans as conventional wisdom has it. Romney would still have lost the election if he had won 40 percent of Hispanics. He would have lost, for that matter, if he had won a majority of these voters, something Republicans have never done. To win, Romney would have had to do a bit better than even Obama did among Hispanics.

It would make a real difference, on the other hand, if Republicans increased their share of white voters by only a few percentage points. RealClearPolitics has an interactive tool that allows for simulating different election scenarios for 2016. It suggests Republicans would win the popular vote and Electoral College if they took 3.3 percent more than Romney from whites — even if everything else about the party’s performance stays the same.

Also, it is doubtful that collaborating with Democrats who want to change the national demographics by importing tens of millions of Hispanics from the Third World will increase the Republican share of Hispanic votes at all, much less to the majority that would be necessary to offset the newly imported Democrats. Third World immigrants overwhelmingly vote for whichever party will seize more of our money and give it to them.

The white vote may be shrinking due to deliberate displacement, but it is the only one that is up for grabs, and it is still the one that decides elections.

It is suicidal to go along with this.
