1. Hispanic voters probably aren't all the same

Just like black voters aren't the same in every state. The Texas hispanics may be more conservative having lived in a conservative state. Arizona and California hispanics may be quite different, we'll see.

2. Clinton supporters are trying to hint

all hispanic voters support her so it's over.

even NBC hardly a pro-bernie source said bernie did well with hispanics in colorado while she won them in texas.

I would say winning in colorado is more important than texas.since any dem is dead on arrival in texas in general and dem could
win in colorado.

3. My 2 cents as a Texas native but who moved to New Mexico age twelve.

We in the Southwest have a very accepting and culturally diverse upbringing. We teach our kids early on to appreciate our Native American and Hispanic neighbors and their cultures. I live in an affluent area in Albuquerque and my family is "white". My kids cousins are half Hispanic. My kids friends through school and sports are AA, Asian, and Hispanic. There's a feeling that these groups only add richness to our lives. After living the first part of my childhood in Texas and going through desegregation and experiencing the racial divisions of a southern state, the differences are stark. I fully expect that the minority voters here in the SW will vote differently than those in the south as their life experiences are so different here. There's a lot of color blindness here and its one reason we love living here. I think we saw some of this in Nevada. The SW will be a different pattern than the South.
