MSNBC Contributor Has Really Bad News For Democrats

Paola Ramos, an MSNBC contributor, warned that Latinos are “moving away” from the Democratic Party. Ramos, the daughter of famed liberal Latino journalist Jorge Ramos, appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” over the weekend. She said that former President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign and recent elections of Hispanic Republicans indicate that Latinos are “moving away from Democrats.” During a promotional appearance for her upcoming episode of the MSNBC show Field Report, Ramos told the co-hosts that Latinas have been abandoning the Democratic Party for some time now.

Ramos then highlighted the special election victory achieved by Republican Congresswoman Mayra Flores, R-Texas, stating, “Fast forward to this summer, someone like Mayra Flores suddenly becomes the first Republican to win Hidalgo County in a hundred years.

She went on to mention how Republican Latinas are building up more momentum since this race. Ramos declared, “Fast forward to where we are now, we’re not just talking about Mayra Flores. There’s three Latina Republicans in South Texas, that are running for office that are completely transforming the dynamics of politics in Texas.”

For this reason, she asserted that the “hypothetical question of ‘Can the Rio Grande Valley – this stronghold for the Democrats, this majority Latino region – can a place like that suddenly become the region that gives Republicans this final push they need through the finish line?’” is “not anymore” hypothetical, according to report.

“We’re not trying to say that Republicans are winning the national Latino vote,” Ramos noted. “We’re saying Democrats are losing it. The Latinos are sending a message, and we need to listen.” Read more
