Lecture Description

An overview of how the Republican Party developed a loyal base of Hispanic support from the 1960s forward, and how it maintained that support even after taking a hard right turn on immigration and border issues. Cadava’s lecture is also explores why Donald Trump won a significant minority of the Hispanic vote – approximately 30 percent – even though he based his campaign, and much of his first time, on appeals to the anti-immigrant, anti-Hispanic sensibilities of his supporters.
