Surprised to see this in a NY Times article
Mr. Fehrnstrom, [Scott] Brown’s former consultant, called the Republican Party leaders’ redirection on immigration after the 2012 election a huge miscalculation.
“They told their candidates to support a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants as a way to increase outreach to Hispanics,” said Mr. Fehrnstrom, who also advised Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential race.
“And candidates who followed that advice are struggling. Donald Trump went in the opposite direction and he has total command of the 2016 field.”
Of course this is correct, but who would have expected to see correct analysis of the immigration issue in the New York Times?
