Powerline had an interpretation of the Nevada caucus results that was interesting. Among the Hispanic Democrats (not Hispanics as a whole) there was disproportionate approval for the true socialist, Bernie. This has been noted before in other contests. That may be related to what individuals think will benefit them in terms of the American economy, but I have to wonder if much of this does not come from hailing from places where even the free market isn't free. An entirely objective analysis would reveal that leftist market-gaming is even more corrupt in Latin America, but it is fair to notice that they have often been exposed to a fairly bad crop of rightists. Once one ends up on a side in political conflicts worldwide, whether by birth or accident or intent, one tends to harden in the position, remember the ills of those crack their eggs on the wrong ends and overlooking the corruption of one's own side.
They carry that forward when they come here, and likely pass it down for at least half a generation. I don't know if Republican Hispanics are a harder-right mirror image, for similar reasons. They've seen a particular bad batch of leftists in their home countries. Eastern Europeans in America tend to be stauncher rightists.
We think our politicians are bad, but that is merely because we are a more powerful country and they can cause more damage. A mild liberal with power in America can bring in more world socialism than a fanatic in Albania.
