Hispanic voters seem fed up with Democratic politicians and their far-left policies. Some even suggest that those policies resemble their days in Communist Cuba.
As President Joe Biden’s approval rating among Hispanics continues to drop, three Hispanic Americans spoke to Fox News about minority voters, specifically Hispanic voters, moving away from the Democratic Party.
Chris Formoso, a first-generation Cuban, told Fox News:
“The Democrats really lost working-class people … These people have absolutely lost their minds. There is no way we could vote for them, especially when Republicans have been more focused on the issues that matter.”
Hector Olmo, a Puerto Rican, retired cop living in New Jersey, said Democrats use rhetoric and handouts to appease minority voters. He added that as they try appeasing minorities, they keep them from achieving real success. Olmo continued:
“We moved here to be independent and to be our own thinkers and be as successful as we want … With socialism, where everybody’s on an equal table–it’s a nice idea, but it doesn’t work.”
“Something that my dad always told me was that Democrats will assist their constituents and help the needy and help the lower class but will never provide them enough to be more successful than them.”
“When you hit somebody’s pocketbook, their freedoms, and their stuff, they’re going to pause and say, ‘hey, what’s going on here?’”
Olmo also cited rising crime rates across major U.S. cities, skyrocketing inflation, and record-high gas prices.
Maria Lorenzo, a Cuban immigrant who came to the United States more than 50 years ago, said the Democratic Party is ignoring its failed policies while embracing socialism, and that has caused them to lose support among Hispanics. Lorenzo added:
“I can’t talk about all the Hispanics, but most of the ones I know, they are fed up with the Democratic Party … people here have a lot of misconceptions. They studied communism in school, but I lived it.”
That was a powerful statement by Lorenzo.
Personally, my family fled the Soviet Union, so what Lorenzo stated is true. A lot of young leftists in America nowadays don’t have a clue what horror the Soviet Union days were, the horrors of Communism, and murderous dictators such as Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, and Fidel Castro. It is critical that leaders and professors educate younger generations about the dangers of socialism, communism, and dictators.
“Most of the Hispanics, especially the ones that came from Cuba and Venezuela, they came running from communism. And they see that this country, the Democratic Party, is leaning towards that- toward socialism, towards division.”
According to Fox News, Lorenzo noted that her parents instilled a strong work ethic in her and her sister. Lorenzo said her father refused to accept any type of government handouts in his pursuit of the American Dream.
As RedState reported earlier this month, the RNC has new tactics to gain more Hispanic voters.
For decades, Democrats have taken Hispanic and Black Americans for granted.
The RNC is putting in the work, and even CNN can’t avoid talking about our historic gains!https://t.co/iaj2Jl6TMq

The November midterms could be a wake-up call for Democratic politicians, but it might be too late, as many Hispanics have switched from registered Democrats to Independent or Republican voters.
