A new NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday has Hillary Clinton earning 73 percent support from Latino voters, 51 points more than the 22 percent Latino support for Donald Trump.
In May, Trump’s Latino support in a similar poll was at 31 percent, while Clinton’s May numbers were at 61 percent. The newest NBC News/SurveyMonkey numbers are consistent with other recent polls that have sampled Latinos, including the FIU/Adsmovil (Clinton 75%, Trump 13%) and Fox News Latino (Clinton 66%, Trump 20%).
The latest NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll also showed that black and Asian American voters overwhelmingly preferred Clinton over Trump. Clinton has a 79-point lead over Trump with black voters and a 43-point lead with Asian American voters. Trump’s only lead over Clinton is with white voters, where the Republican candidate holds a 9-point lead.
Recently, the Trump campaign has been courting black and Latino voters through speeches and advisory panels, hoping to improve on Trump’s low numbers with these voting groups. In 2012, Mitt Romney won 6% of the black vote, 27% of the Latino vote, 26% of the Asian American vote and 59% of the white vote. In that same election, Barack Obama took 93% of the black vote, 71% of the Latino vote, 73% of the Asian American vote and 39% of the white vote.
