Poll: Clinton Leads Trump By 50 Points Among Key Voter Group
A newly released poll conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal shows Hillary Clinton with a 50-point lead over Trump among Latino voters heading into the final weeks of the presidential election,67 percent to 17 percent.
In a four-way matchup, that also includes Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein, the poll found that 67 percent of Latino likely voters back Clinton, while just 17 percent back Trump.
In a head-to-head race with Johnson and Stein removed, Clinton lead is even higher, 70 percent to 17 percent among Latinos likely to vote.
Donald Trump’s inability to connect with the Hispanic community and anti-illegal immigration rhetoric have put the Manhattan billionaire in a massive hole with Latino voters with just weeks to go until Election Day.
On day one of his presidential campaign, Trump said that undocumented immigrants from Mexico were rapists and drug dealers.
Naturally, his favorability among Latinos remains strikingly low. The new poll shows that 80 percent view him negatively, compared with just 13 percent who view him positively.
