A new Democrat report has revealed the stark contrast between radical left initiatives and the views of the majority of the party’s voters.
The Third Way, Collective PAC and Latino Victory Fund report said, “The socialism attack… hurt campaigns in states and districts with immigrant populations that fled socialist governments, including among Venezuelan, Cuban, Vietnamese, and Filipino voters.”
It added, “This ‘potpourri’ included efforts to tie candidates to socialism, Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and ‘the Squad’ (in these cases all framed as equally radical).
“These attacks were used to a greater or lesser degree depending on the unique constituencies of a given district,” the report added. “There was no one best way to counter these attacks nor was there a clear agreement even that we should address the issue in paid communications.”
The report comes as Republicans won a mayoral battle on Saturday in the border city of McAllen, Texas. The community approximately 85 percent Hispanic.
Former Trump 2020 campaign adviser Steve Cortes tweeted the event as, “Amazing news!”
Amazing news! McAllen, Texas is a major border town of 140,000 people. 85% Hispanic — and just elected a Republican mayor.
The macro realignment accelerates in South Texas, and elsewhere, as Hispanics rally to America First:

The report highlighted the need for Democrats to return to its American values rather than to embrace the extreme positions of those in its party. Not doing so could lead to a strong conservative surge in the 2022 midterm elections.
