Fully three-quarters of Latino registered voters in the U.S. have discussed Donald Trump with family, friends or coworkers over the past year, and the tone of those talks is not sympathetic, an extensive new survey shows.
The study by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center found Hillary Clinton leading Trump by about a 2-1 margin among Latinos — roughly the same as the edge that President Obama held over Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, four years ago. And that was before Trump spent a week feuding with a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado.
The support Trump does have among Latinos came primarily from older, U.S.-born men, especially those who are evangelical Protestants — a heavily Republican group.
The two potential weak spots for Clinton among Latino voters, the survey found, were the same that polls have found among non-Latinos — younger voters and overall turnout.
Latino voters younger than 35 showed even less support for Trump than did their elders, but significant numbers reported that they were considering votes for third-party candidates Gary Johnson, the Libertarian, and Jill Stein of the Green Party. Each of those candidates received support from about one in eight Latino millennials, the poll found.
Overall, the share of Latino voters who said they were definite about voting was somewhat lower than four years ago. That may have changed by now, however. The study was based on a poll conducted Aug. 23 through Sept. 21. It surveyed 1,507 Latino adults, including 804 registered voters. The margin of error for the registered voter sample is 4.6 percentage points in either direction.
