The Hispanic electorate and Elon Musk, perhaps unconsciously, have formed one of the most explosive alliances to jeopardize the Democratic aspirations to keep both houses of Congress in the November midterm elections.
On the one hand, Hispanics, an ethnic group historically linked to the Democratic Party, have radically turned their backs on the progressive policies of Biden and his party, and have turned energetically to the GOP (or at least, that is what several polls published in recent months represent).
The latest NPR/Marist poll shows that only 40% of Hispanics approve of Biden’s performance as president, while 55% disapprove, a huge drop from Biden’s initial good numbers with Latinos in March 2021, when 64% of Hispanics approved of his presidency.
To the loss of influence in the Hispanic community, we must add the awakening of Elon Musk, apolitical most of his life, has grown tired of censorship from the left and after buying Twitter has received all kinds of attacks, both from Democratic senators and congressmen, as well as from the mainstream progressive media. The latest to fire back at Musk was NBC anchor Mehdi Hasan, who said, “If [the “neo-Nazi faction” of the GOP expands in Nov.], we may look back on this … as a pivotal moment, when a petulant & not-so-bright billionaire casually bought one of the most influential messaging machines & just handed it to the far-right”
Musk responded on Twitter, “NBC basically saying Republicans are Nazis (…) Same org that covered up Hunter Biden laptop story, had Harvey Weinstein story early & killed it & built Matt Lauer his rape office. Lovely people.”

For the Democrats anything that goes against them is disinformation—that’s why they created the Ministry of Truth—, racism, white supremacism, and Nazism; however, the reality is starting to hit them in the face, and between Latinos, Elon Musk and freedom of speech, they will have it pretty tough in November.
