Donald Trump I will win the Latino vote

Donald Trump “I will win the Latino vote.”

The poll of 250 Latinos found that 75 percent view the real estate mogul and GOP presidential front-runner unfavorably, with 61 percent saying that their view of him is “very negative.” Just 13 percent of respondents said they have a positive view of Trump.

The Republican presidential candidate has claimed that Latino voters “love” and support him, citing some state-based polls. But the new national over-sample of Latino adults found that more than half believe his rhetoric about immigration is offensive.

During his announcement speech in June, Trump said that Mexico is “sending people that have lots of problems… They are bringing drugs. They are bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Asked to assess that comment, 55 percent of Latinos said that the remarks were “insulting and racist and have no place in a campaign for president.

Another 29 percent said that “Trump should have been more careful with the language he used, but he is raising an important issue.” Fourteen percent said that “Trump had the guts to say exactly what was on his mind about an important problem we need to deal with.

A broad majority of those polled also believes that Trump is doing damage to the GOP’s image.

Sixty-nine percent of Latinos surveyed said that they believe Trump is hurting the Republican Party’s image, while just 12 percent said he is helping it. Sixteen percent said he is having no impact on perceptions of the GOP.

The poll of 250 Latino adults was conducted July 26-30. The margin of error for 250 interviews among Adults is ±6.20%.
