CNN Political Contributor Ana Navarro: 5 Reminders on How to Appeal to Hispanic Voters

Posted by Alexis Washington

SONY DSCIt’s no secret that American demographics are changing. According to the 2012 U.S. Census, Hispanic Americans make up 17% of the country, but only 27% of registered Latino voters voted for Republican candidate Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential Election.

CNN Republican strategist Ana Navarro feels, that the low Latino voter turn out is a clear example that more needs to be done to appeal to Hispanic voters before the next presidential election!

Here are 5 important reminders to follow in order to successfully court the Hispanic vote, before the upcoming election:

#1 “Latino voters are just like every other American voter, we just happen to be of Hispanic descent.”

#2 “If you want to run for president in 2016, you’ve got to begin now, and it’d help if you got yourself some Rosetta Stone and started picking up some Spanish phrases!”

#3 “The first thing you got to do is understand that Hispanics are not a homogenous blob. We are all different. We come from different places.”

#4 “The country is shifting. The attitudes are shifting and we’ve got to let that shift happen naturally.”

#5 “There’s not one thing that’s enough. There’s not one silver bullet to win any group of voters.”
