With less than 50 days until the presidential election, more polls focusing on Latino voters are beginning to emerge. Besides a Univision poll of Latinos in swing states and a recent tracking poll both showing Hillary Clinton with big leads over Donald Trump, two new polls released Thursday conclude that Trump’s Latino support has yet to see any significant increases.
NBC News reported that Clinton has a 71-18% lead over Trump among likely Latino voters in a head-to-head matchup. Among registered Latino voters, Clinton has a 69%-18% advantage.
When the question includes Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Clinton is at 65% to Trump’s 17% with likely voters and 63%-16% with registered voters.
In addition, NBC News reported that 80% of Latinos polled view Trump unfavorably. This latest poll, which ran from September 15–20, was conducted by NBC News, Telemundo and The Wall Street Journal. It sampled 300 registered Latinos in both English and in Spanish. It has a +/- 5.66% margin of error for registered voters and a +/- 6% for registered voters. Here are the full results of the poll:
Another Swing State Poll
A poll of Latinos in five swing states from the Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative (FAU BEPI) provides additional insights about voter preferences. According to the poll, Clinton leads Trump by wide margins in both Latino-rich swing states (Colorado, Florida and Nevada) and swing states with smaller Latino populations (North Carolina and Ohio).
According to the poll, Clinton has leads over Trump in all age groups for the five swing states, except in Ohio, where Trump holds a 1% lead with Latinos 35-54 and in Florida, where Trump leads Clinton 49%-43% with Latinos 55–74.
Trump also has high unfavorables with Latinos in this poll. In Colorado, 80% of respondents view him unfavorably. In Florida, however, his unfavorables are just at 58%. Clinton’s highest favorable is at 65% with Colorado voters. Her highest unfavorables are at 42% in Florida and 44% in Ohio.
The FAU BEPI poll was conducted between September 15 and September 19. It sampled 400 registered Latino voters per swing state. The margin of error is at +/-4.9. You can read the full results below:
