(The Hill) – Of the many constants political forecasters accept heading into 2016, it’s that all voting blocs are monolithic and all potential Latino voters next year pretty much despise Donald Trump. The ranting billionaire flame-thrower makes little effort to reverse that notion: for example, he has singlehandedly demolished any chance of comprehensive immigration reform passing any time soon. We’ve now reached the point where folks are openly mulling barcodes on human beings.

But there are quite a few numbers that keep pushing back against conventional wisdom on Trump’s standing with Latinos, the Republican Party’s relationship with the so-called “brown vote” and whether the only policy issue Latinos ever really worry about is immigration.

The problem here is that he seems unfazed by any of this. It’s as if he’s completely oblivious to the presence of Latino voters in 2016 or he believes they won’t be as pivotal as every other observer assumes. One theory concludes that’s just what Trump does: He comfortably embraces his straight-no-chaser bully ethos with style.
