In one of the first post-debate national polls of Latino voters, Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump increased by three points, from a 54-point margin to a 57-point one. The third week of a tracking poll released Monday morning by the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) Education Fund, Telemundo and Latino Decisions shows Clinton with 73% of Latino support and Trump with 16% (+/- 4.4% margin of error). The second week of the tracking poll released last Monday before the debate had it at Clinton 72%-18% over Trump.
Of the 72% who chose Clinton, 56% of those polled said they were “certain” to vote for the Democratic candidate. Of the 18% who chose Trump, only 12% said they were “certain” to vote for the Republican candidate. In 2012, President Barack Obama won the Latino vote over Mitt Romney by 44 points.
