A tracking poll released Tuesday by NBC News and SurveyMonkey shows Latino support for Donald Trump is now at 32%, compared to 61% Latino support for Hillary Clinton. A similar tracking poll from May 17 had Trump at 28% with Latino voters and Clinton at 65%.
Trump’s 32% Latino support from this tracking poll is now higher than the 27% Latino vote tally Mitt Romney got in 2012, when he lost to Barack Obama. Other polls, including those from Fox News Latino and FIU/Adsmovil, still have Trump doing poorly with Latino voters. The NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll did not include a Latino vote comparison between Trump and Bernie Sanders, although the tracking poll did show that Sanders is leading Trump by 12 points 52-40) among all voters surveyed, while Clinton holds a 2-point lead over Trump (47–45).
The NBC News/SurveyMonkey tracking poll is one of the few polls that is taking into account a large sample of online Latinos as part of its overall sample. This latest poll included 1,381 Latinos out of 14,797 total participants. The toplines for this tracking poll are available here.
