Jen Psaki: “And there is a massive disinformation problem in Spanish language media.”
The left just cannot accept the fact that not all Latinos are Democrats. they cannot fathom why a Latino would ever support a Republican, especially Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Former Press Secretary Jen Psaki:
The Latino vote is not the same everywhere! There are huge generational differences and in Florida population of older voters (more likely Rs) much larger than younger. Socialism does not play there. And there is a massive disinformation problem in Spanish language media.

María Elena Salinas, former Univision anchor and Latino Media Network board member, described Miami as “one of the ‘centers of disinformation'” and people shouldn’t interpret as how Latinos feel at the national level:
“We have to be careful not to read too much into this,” she said. “This is just Florida.”
DeSantis won Miami-Dade County. He is the first Republican since 2002 to win the county.
DeSantis crushed Democrat Charlie Crist, 59.4% to 40.0%.
MRC Latina Director Jorge Bonilla spoke to Fox News Digital:
“The remarks,” Bonilla told Fox News Digital, “show that what the left cannot have or control, they disparage. So, having lost significant chunks of the Hispanic vote over the past few years, they’ve gone to this old trope of Spanish language disinformation. It is a trusty trope, it is a reliable trope. It is a malleable trope.”
Bonilla gave full credit to DeSantis for the win, saying he “engaged Hispanics in a respectful manner” on issues ranging from immigration to the economy.
“He didn’t pander to the Hispanic community on immigration,” Bonilla said. “But treated Hispanics as parents, as people with aspirations, with jobs. He didn’t look at the Hispanic community as a monolith to be pandered to.”
Giancarlo Sopo, the founder of PR firm Visto Media, cited a poll conducted by his company that destroyed Psaki and Salinas:
Sopo said recent data questioned the notion that “Spanish disinformation” is driving Hispanics to the GOP. In a WPA Intelligence/Visto Media national poll of 1,086 likely Hispanic voters taken October 4-7, respondents were asked if they have become more liberal or conservative in the past five years. Among Spanish news consumers, there was a net gain of 10 points to the left, Sopo said. Among English news consumers, there was a net gain of 5 points to the right. Overall, among all Hispanics, there was a 3-point rightward shift.
“The Democrats convey tremendous ignorance when they blame ‘Spanish disinformation’ for their losses among Hispanics,” explained Sopo. “This excuse might help them avoid confronting difficult truths in front of donors, but it is entirely inconsistent with the research data.”

CNN exit polls show support for Republicans among Latino voters was way up from where it was in 2018 — and "it's not just Cuban Americans in South Florida…it's with Puerto Ricans, it's with Colombians, it's with Central Americans." pic.twitter.com/kz33zGPCRw
