To Puerto Rican Democrat voters in FLORIDA …. “It is time for Puerto Ricans to stop being used as puppets: by the Democratic Party, or by anyone.
If Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party allow Puerto Rico to sink into the ocean, then it’s time to vote for someone else. “
According to the latest polls, Bernie Sanders has surpassed Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire: he now leads Clinton 44% to 37% among likely Democratic voters.
Also over the past week, Senator Sanders drew overflow crowds in Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles – over 50,000 people at the two events – and a wave of support is building on Facebook and Twitter.
And so, just like eight years ago, Hillary Clinton stands at a career crossroad: a few specific factors will make or break her presidential campaign. One of these factors will be the Puerto Rican vote.
For the past few decades, US presidential candidates have patronized the Puerto Rican people. They simply visit the island for a day or two, say a few Spanish words, throw a quick fundraiser, then hurry back to the mainland.
But this year is different. This year, Puerto Rico is in great trouble.
