Jeb! seems happiest when he’s campaigning in Spanish. His wife, on the other hand, seems quite uncomfortable in English.
As the Breitbart article points out, Bush’s Spanish outreach isn’t likely to help him, given that he’s p*ssing off the base to the point where Mitt Romney looks like a solid conservative.
Bush’s foreign-language outreach to the Latino slice of U.S. voters is unlikely to yield any benefits on the campaign trail. Most Hispanic voters are concentrated in a few Democratic-dominated states, and they tend to back the Democratic Party.
In contrast, most of the GOP’s Latino support comes from third-generation Hispanics, many of whom consider themselves core Americans, speak English and worry about their neighborhoods and schools being damaged by the inflow of low-skill migrants who can’t speak English.
The GOP’s 2012 candidate, Mitt Romney, would have had to win 73 percent of the concentrated Hispanic turnout to flip enough states to win the 2012 election, unless he also increased his share of core voters, who comprise 70 percent of the electorate.
Core voters don’t like Jeb! Bush. At all. We’re not interested in amnesty for millions – up to 50 million when you roll in extended families – of illegal aliens.
We really don’t need another 50 million low skilled welfare leeches on the rolls.
Jeb!, every day you’re in the campaign you drive core voters to Donald Trump, and you’re helping him to expand the Republican base – 25% of black voters would support Trump according to the latest polling.
So Jeb!, follow your heart. Go run for President of Mexico. President Donald will send about 15 million of the citizens you love so much back to you.
