A Google executive’s leaked email reveals efforts to increase the Latino turnout before 2016 AMERICAN presidential elections and of the council of the “surprise” on the Donald Trump of the performance among Latino voters.

The 675-word e-mail, first obtained exclusively by Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was written by the tech giant’s former head of multicultural marketing and details of a series of efforts to increase Latino turnout, including the support of a partner organization, which helped to drive voters to the polls.

“We have been working very hard. A lot of people did. We pushed to get out the Latino vote, our power, our partners and our voices. We loved our Googley efforts are non-partisan and followed us company, protocols for the election strategy,” the email begins. “We emphasize our mission to provide Latinos access to information so they can make an informed decision at the elections, and we feel very grateful for all the support to do this important work.”

At the end of the e-mail, the author who wrote that Hispanic Googler’s are “probably in pain now” and that the results of the elections will be “difficult to handle now that we know that not all of us were against it.”

The Google college recognizes that the Latino’s, long considered the “sleeping giant” of American politics is due to the fast-changing demography, it did vote in record-breaking numbers and turned out in the beginning—, but a large part supported Asset in place of Hillary Clinton.


“In the end, after all is said and [sic], the Latino community will come out to vote, and completely surprised us. We have never suggested that 29% of Latinos would vote for Trump. No one did,” the executive wrote.


After the elections, polls showed that Trump performed better among Latinos than most analysts had predicted.

“Objectively, our goal was achieved—we pushed and successfully launched the search of functions in Spanish, and we thank Lisa for her support in advocating for this work. I sent Philip a note yesterday to thank him because he and others expressed their support for this, and we appreciate it. Even Sundar [Pichai, Google’s CEO] gave the effort a shout out and comment in Spanish, it was really very special.”

A Google spokesperson previously told Fox News: “The views expressed in this e-mail from the employee’s personal political views and are not representative of the official position of the company. Google elections of the efforts—both in 2016 and in the run-up to this year’s mid—term elections-are completely unfettered. We will continue with the use of our products in an informative, unbiased way to go voters in the run-up to the November elections.”

Google also supported Voto Latino, a non-profit organization was co-founded by actress Rosario Dawson, according to its website, which seeks to “transform America by recognizing the Latinos’ innate leadership.”

The email states that Voto Latino helped ferry voters to the polls in key states, something the author labels as a “silent donation,” and that Google helped create ad campaigns to promote the rides to the polls with the help of other Latino non-profit group.


The search giant has teamed with the National Voter Registration Day, on which the board of directors the members and the secretaries of state of both sides of the political aisle. A source with knowledge of the efforts of the company said that the employee who sent the email was not involved in any formal get-out-the-vote efforts.

According to the e-mail, Google also worked with the Latino Community Foundation non-partisan “#YoVoyaVotaryTu” (I’m going to vote, you know?) and with YouTube influencers to mobilize voters. That hashtag campaign had 11 million impressions, the executive noted.

The e-mail also mentions an event that attracted 200 people and a Google hangout with a social media influencer on the power of the Latino vote.
