Google Releases Top Trending Election Day Search & It Spells Disaster For GOP


It’s no surprise that Americans are Googling for information on where, when, and how to vote on midterm day during the most important election in our lifetimes. It’s the particular way they’re asking the question, however, that looks incredibly good for Democrats and devastating for the GOP.

A little more than a month before Election Day, NBC released results of a poll of Latino American voters, and the news was not good for Trump or the GOP.

‘The survey, which included a sample of 300 Latino registered voters, found that just 26 percent approve of Trump’s job performance, compared with 65 percent who disapprove — with 50 percent disapproving strongly.

‘Even among Latinos who identify themselves as ideologically conservative, only half give Trump a thumbs up, while 44 percent disapprove of his performance. That’s compared with eight-in-10 self-described conservatives overall who approve of the job Trump is doing.

‘The unpopularity of Trump and his political positions among Latinos could give Democrats a boost in the 2018 midterms — if Latino voters go to the polls in November.’

Millions of Latino Americans voting may spell disaster for Republicans. After two years of a Trump presidency in which the president has repeatedly targeted Latino immigrants as “MS-13” gang members (who comprise less than one thousandth of one percent of all Latino immigrants currently in the United States), drug traffickers, sex traffickers, rapists, and murderers doesn’t appear to have gone over well with Latino voters.

Twitter was delighted by the news, although Trump supporters, who of course don’t realize that there are millions of American citizens whose primary language is Spanish, are crying foul. Read some of their comments below:
