The second week of a National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) Education Fund, Telemundo and Latino Decisions tracking poll released hours before Monday night’s first presidential debate has Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by 54 points with Latino voters. In a poll that ran between September 12 and September 17 (+/- 4.4% margin of error), Clinton’s Latino support was as 72%, with Trump earning 18% support. In last week’s version of the the poll, Clinton was at 71% and Trump had 18% Latino support.
The September 12-17 tracking poll also asked how certain voters were for their choices. Only 12% said they were certainly voting for Trump, while 53% said they were certainly voting for Clinton.
Other findings from this week’s tracking poll included:
Latino voters think Donald Trump would be a poor choice on Latin American policy. Only 9% of respondents thought would Trump could be trusted to strengthen relations between the U.S. and Latin America. Conversely, 71% thought Clinton could be trusted on this issue.
Latino voters don’t think Donald Trump will bring the change Washington needs. In fact, 70% of voters think so. On the other hand, 75% of voters said Clinton possesses the right experience to be President.
