This is what liberals will never learn.

A political ideology that’s locked into the idea that how Americans vote is determined by the color of their skin or ethnic background is always going to be taken by surprise when it turns out individuals are perfectly capable of exercising their own judgment based on their own experience and their own principles.

And MSNBC just gave its viewers that kind of surprise with a report from a race for Congress in Texas.

In the Lone Star State’s 7th Congressional District, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle reported Tuesday, Republican Rep. John Culberson is in a “tight race” with Democratic challenger Lizzie Fletcher. Ruhle cited a poll showing Culberson with only a 1 percentage point lead and pointed out that the district is 30 percent Hispanic.

Reporting from on the ground in the district, which covers parts of Houston and areas west of the city, MSNBC’s Mariana Atencio found not all Hispanics are favorable toward Democrats’ policy of welcoming illegal aliens.

The Republican National Committee wasted no time in posting an exceprt of the Atencio report – an interview with a Hispanic man at an early voting site in Houston that proves immigration isn’t the Achilles heel for Republicans that so much of the liberal media likes to pretend.

Check it out here:

“Democrats believe that if they can get Latinos to turn out, that is what is going to push the Democratic challenger over the top,” Atencio said.

But she pointed out that Hispanic voting could be a two-edged sword.

“Texas Latinos, if they turn out, they may not all necessarily turn out blue,” Atencio said.

And one man she interviewed proved the point.

“I do believe, if somebody wants to live in the United States, they should go through the official process,” one voter, identified as Rob Gutierrez, told Atencio. “And so as a result, I tend to ally myself with people who agree with that.”

When Atencio pressed, asking if images of migrant caravans, for instance, might affect how Gutierrez votes, his answer was simple.

“Yes, it makes me want to vote Republican,” he said. “Because I think that if you want to live in this country, you need to abide by its laws.”

This is a voter who understands his principles, and he understands what political party shares them. And they’re completely independent of his ethnic background. And that’s something liberals will never learn.
