An Anglo-Latino Working Class?

Reihan Salam, formerly Ross Douthat's partner on the late, takes off from the Democratic primary results and posits the existence (or emergence) of an Anglo-Latino working class. For nearly four decades, enlightened opinion has seen Latinos as "people of color," who will respond to American politics much as blacks have done. All recent experience (and my own The New Americans: How the Melting Pot Can Work Again) suggest this is not so.
