I distinctly remember on this board how the Democrats would sweep the Latin vote in part due to the PR refugees.

But those Catholic loving Commie hating Cubans seem to like Trump.

He even made up some award he won. Bloomberg is spending 100 million, but then we seen how far that got him before, epic failure.

Desantis is a Republican, so that helps.

Strawman btw. The snapshot of the time indicated that Florida would win or lose the presidential election.

I pointed out that Trump did himself no favours throwing toilet paper at hurricane victims.

I knew this would be Jergul bait...

In reality, right now its about tied. But who knows how that 100 million will play out. Trump does have a little home field advantage I would think with Maralago likely being a staging ground.

As for enthusiasm, abortion issues get people riled up. A majot factor in Republican support from Cubans, that and the anti commie thing, but since it's not Bernie running Id bet the abortion bit plays more of a factor.

I feel like this election cycle is less intense than before.

‘This is f---ing crazy’: Florida Latinos swamped by wild conspiracy theories

A flood of disinformation and deceptive claims is damaging Joe Biden in the nation’s biggest swing state.

MIAMI — George Soros directs a “deep state” global conspiracy network. A Joe Biden win would put America in control of “Jews and Blacks.” The Democratic nominee has a pedophilia problem.

Wild disinformation like this is inundating Spanish-speaking residents of South Florida ahead of Election Day, clogging their WhatsApp chats, Facebook feeds and even radio airwaves at a saturation level that threatens to shape the outcome in the nation’s biggest and most closely contested swing state.

...

“I’ve never seen this level of disinformation, conspiracy theories and lies,” Pérez-Verdia, who is of Colombian descent, said. “It looks as if it has to be coordinated.”

...

Conspiracy theories — especially revolving around QAnon, which posits that Trump is fighting a global cabal of satanic pedophiles — are spreading across Spanish-language radio in Miami as well, said Roberto Tejera, a political independent who has a show on Actualidad Radio. Tejera said QAnon is a constant on another station, La Poderosa, whose station management also did not respond to messages seeking comment.

“It’s not right wing. I don’t have a problem with right-wing stuff. It’s QAnon stuff. This is conspiracy theory. This goes beyond. This is new. This is a new phenomenon in Spanish speaking radio. We Cubans are not normal,” Tejera laughed, “but this is new. This is crazy. This is f---ing crazy.”

yes, i'm aware the delusional fraud liar claimed to have gotten yet another non-existent award

his campaign defended it as the vets gave him a painting of their emblem... thus that is now the 'Bay of Pigs' award apparently... no explanation why he'd think anyone would name an award after that event
