CLEVELAND – Hillary Clinton now holds a 69-point lead over Donald Trump with Latino voters, according to the latest New Latino Voice (NLV) online tracking poll from Florida International University and Hispanic mobile advertising company Adsmovil. The poll’s July 5-17 results, which sampled 8,242 online Latinos, show Clinton with 81% of Latino support and Trump with only 12%.
The NLV poll’s newest numbers are consistent with other national polls of Latino voters, including NBC/Telemundo/WSJ (Clinton 76% Trump 14%) and Univision (Clinton 67% Trump 19%). The latest Pew poll has Clinton at 66% and Trump at 24%.
Ever since the NLV tracking poll launched in April, Clinton has seen her Latino support continue to increase steadily. One reason for the Clinton’s increase was the decrease in Latino support for an “Other” candidate, very likely Bernie Sanders. Once the “Other” candidate saw a significant drop in early June (around the time it was clear that Sanders would not get the Democratic nomination), Clinton has gone from 74% to 81%, while Trump has gone from 17% to 12%.

Why don’t you ask latinos about Libertarian Gary Johnson? I’ve seen him polling consistently in the teens with latino voters. Using “other” is designed to drive down responses.
If Trump continues to insist that Latinos love him, he is out of touch with Latinos who are distrustful of the Republican Party. Even Cuban-American Republican voters in Florida will not like Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric (some GOP-registered Cuban voters who don’t consider illegal immigration a salient issue in may vote for him because they see him as someone who can create jobs, others will not vote for him because of his support for Obama’s Cuba policy and his lenient foreign policy [Ros-Lehtinen and Curbelo have ruled out voting for Trump, presumably because they hate his anti-immigration rhetoric and they don’t like him endorsing Obama’s Cuba policy]).
Just a reminder that MOST day-day-life in the U.S. is regulated at the state and local level, including a lot of VOTING and other civil rights. Vote BLUE all the way down ticket!!
Can’t imagine why any Latino or minority or person of color would ever vote for Trump. Not even one.
This tells a different story.
