Donald Trump’s ties to Russia have been well documented. And while Russia’s efforts to tilt the election in Donald Trump’s favor can certainly have a major effect, perhaps it’s Trump’s ties to the Castro regime that could sink him once and for all.
A new poll listed a large 8 point lead for Clinton in the state, out of line with other recent polls showing the race there much tighter. But the interesting thing was that this poll asked the question of those who have already voted. The results are good news for Clinton.
The pollster included 311 residents who already cast their vote inside a larger sample of 708. The early vote was huge for Clinton, with Trump having a slight advantage in the yet-to-vote.
Crucial to this lead was the fact that 28% of those Republican affiliates who said they had already voted were voting for Clinton.
In Florida, the GOP has a large Hispanic base. Marco Rubio is leading his Senate race by six points. Trump, however, has been working to break the Cuba embargo as he tried to build hotels in cooperation with the Castro’s regime. And he has been offensive to Hispanics throughout the presidential campaign.
Another interesting revelation is that older GOP Cuban-Hispanics hate Donald Trump on Cuba.
As reported by Political Dig, Donald Trump spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in Cuba was prohibited without U.S. government approval.
But the company did not spend the money directly. Instead, with Trump’s knowledge, executives funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort.
Below is the memo showing Donald Trump breaking the Cuban embargo:
A Trump win could prove a giant headache for Hispanics. And now they are registering more and voting more in early voting than in 2012. Hispanics are credited for securing Obama’s re-election in 2012.
