George Soros is the number one donor in the Democrat Party.
What Soros says goes.
And George Soros made one decision about 2024 that came back to bite Democrats.
Despite four years of a media smear campaign falsely claiming Trump was a racist because he supported building a border wall, he increased his share of the Latino vote in 2020.
A post-election Pew survey found Trump won 38 percent of the Hispanic vote as part of him winning the largest share of the non-white vote by a Republican Presidential candidate since 1960.
Republican gains continued in 2022, as the GOP won the highest percentage of black and Hispanic voters in a Midterm election in modern history.
Soros initially thought about throwing his financial muscle behind an effort to reverse this trend.
The Soros-funded Open Societies Foundation pitched left-wing groups focused on Hispanic turnout to devise a voter mobilization plan to get Latinos to the polls for Joe Biden.
Mi Familia Vota, Latino Victory Fund, and UnidosUS Action Fund presented a plan to fund get-out-the-vote efforts targeting Hispanics in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin — the battleground states that will decide the next election.
But the Soros-backed Open Societies Foundation rejected the proposal.
Since the left-wing groups want to keep the door open to access to Soros’ money, they still praised Open Societies Foundation’s commitment to their cause.
“The Open Society Foundation has been a partner to Latino Victory from day one,” Latino Victory President Sindy Benavides said in a statement to The Messenger. “Their support has been instrumental to Latino Victory’s efforts to empower our community, from engagement and mobilization efforts to building a pipeline of Latino leaders and connecting with the Latino community to ensure their voices and issues are reflected in our electoral process. We will continue doing great work together going into 2024 and beyond.”
“Open Society Foundation is a partner of Mi Familia Vota — they currently support our work to protect our democracy and build Latino political power,” Mi Familia Vota CEO and President Hector Sanchez Barba also told The Messenger. “At this critical moment in our history, we look forward to continuing to work with them and other progressive foundations, making necessary investments to strengthen our democracy and fight extremism.”
America is in the middle of an era of close Presidential elections.
The 2016 and 2020 contests were decided by about 50,000 votes across three states.
The most recent polling from CNN and CBS showed Donald Trump leading Joe Biden nationally.
New York Times/Siena polling of the swing states the Latino groups targeted for their get-out-the-vote drive had Trump beating Biden in five of the six battlegrounds.
In an election where the margins will matter, Democrats could pay a price for the Soros decision not to fund Hispanic voter mobilization efforts.
