Clinton has peaked at 81% during the course of the NLV poll, while Trump’s best numbers have been at 17%. Since April, NLV has polled more than 200,000 online Latinos. Its results have been in line with more traditional polls, such as the ones from Univision/Washington Post and Telemundo/NBC News/WSJ.

Immigration continues to be the principal issue for Latinos; this week it rose considerably, although it is difficult to explain why there was an increase in this issue. Security dropped a bit but note that it has not dropped under 15 since Orlando. Clearly, if we were to combine economy and employment into a single variable, it would be evident that economic issues are the most important to Latinos.
