Hispanic Voters Overwhelmingly Choose Bernie Sanders as Their Candidate in Nevada Caucus
While many Conservative Inc. operatives claim that Hispanics are natural conservatives, the actual data shows otherwise as Hispanic voters fuel the rise of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as the front-runner for the Democrat nominee for president.
The Nevada caucus has been Sanders’ biggest win yet, with exit polls showing Sanders’ immense strength in the first diverse state to select their presidential favorite. While Sanders has commanded a strong support base of lily-white extreme leftists for quite some time now, his most important constituency is proving to be Hispanics.
Scenes from the Nevada caucus show exactly what is in store for America in the years to come if the demographic slide isn’t sharply reversed, and fast:
Polling data shows that Hispanics overwhelmingly support more government in every situation, with even Hispanics who are supposedly conservative Republicans far more likely to support government as well.

This is why they find Sanders’ socialist message so alluring. Hispanic voters will naturally go to the voters who give the most government giveaways, and Sanders has built is entire career on pandering. As more Hispanics are given representation in government, this type of political messaging will become the norm.

Sanders has commanded the support of the far-left Congressional “Squad,” consisting of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who see Sanders as enabling their meteoric rise to the forefront of U.S. politics. These are the future rulers of America as the young Hispanic voting base continues to consolidate and eventually becomes a majority.
“We want to talk about health care, we want to talk about a living wage, we want to talk about women’s rights—but he did this when it was least convenient,” Ocasio-Cortez said during a recent appearance on ABC’s “The View.” “He was fighting for these things since before I was even born.”
“He understands that it’s not just about policies and about words, but it’s going to be also about completely transforming the structures in place,” Tlaib said of Sanders.
“Being radical means you believe in the idea that politics can be a vehicle of bringing joy into people’s lives,” Omar said during a campaign appearance with Sanders in New Hampshire. “It’s because of my radical love for our country that we are here today.”
