Joy Reid, Julian Castro Desperately Downplay Latino Voters’ Exodus from Dems

'I have been pulling my hair out for the last couple months as I have seen story after story after story that you mention acting as though the Latino vote is somehow firmly a Republican vote now...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) With Republicans poised to make historic minority gains—most notably among the Hispanic and Latino communities, Democrat operatives in the leftist press are desperate to downplay the damage.

MSNBC’s The ReidOut traveled to Fort Worth, Texas, to discuss the impending red tsunami, with Democrat gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke trailing incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott and several blue districts on the south Texas border expected to flip red.

After discussing the situation with O’Rourke and other party activists, ReidOut host Joy Reid interviewed former San Antonio mayor and failed 2020 presidential candidate Julian Castro, the Media Research Center reported.

Both blamed the mainstream media for pushing the narrative about shifting Latino loyalties, while also denying that it could actually be happening.

“There is this thing that’s happening in the mainstream media that they say, ‘oh, Hispanic voters are going Republican,’” Reid said. “As if they are now a solid Republican group, because you do have some south Texas counties that are shifting red.”

The race-hustling, gaslighting host then read a number of headlines from left-leaning media outlets showing concern for the Dems losing the Latino demographic.

She then turned the conversation to Castro, asking why he believed this idea has become such a big concern.

“I have been pulling my hair out for the last couple months as I have seen story after story after story that you mention acting as though the Latino vote is somehow firmly a Republican vote now, which couldn’t be further from the truth because when you poll it, Latinos are still firmly Democratic,” he replied.

He then expressed the belief that Hispanic the media will unconsciously push Hispanic people who do not follow politics to vote Republican, stating that this could become a “self-fulfilling prophecy.”

He then ended by warning that “there is a bandwagon effect that I fear can happen based on essentially inaccurate narrative that is out there over and over and over again.”
