Slamming Latinos Motivates Many to Register and Vote

Presidential candidate Donald Trump may be inadvertently tapping into a phenomenon that is energizing U.S. Latinos against him when he talks of sending illegal immigrants home and building a wall blocking off Mexico. Recent news reports have noted a surge of Latinos registering to vote with the intent to vote against Trump because of his negative statements about their ethnic group. These results are consistent with a 2015 study by Efrén Pérez of Vanderbilt University, Ricochet: How Elite Discourse Politicizes Racial and Ethnic Identities. The study predicted that when Latinos who strongly identify with their ethnic group perceive it is being disparaged, they respond by becoming more politically engaged and motivated to register and vote.

Study: Sanctions Boost Foreign Military More Than They Hurt Economy
