Three out of four Hispanics view Trump unfavorably
More than three out of four Hispanics view Donald Trump negatively, according to the latest Gallup survey.
The billionaire presidential candidate has a 77 percent unfavorable rating and a 12 percent favorable rating among Hispanics in both parties, according to Gallup Daily tracking data collected between early January and early March.
The share of Hispanics who view Trump unfavorably has increased from this summer, when he was viewed negatively by 66 percent and positively by 14 percent.
Trump has angered Hispanics with his comments tagging Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals — and his numbers are unsurprisingly the worst of the presidential candidates on both sides, by far.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who is of Cuban descent, has the second-highest unfavorable rating (30 percent), though his favorable rating is more than double Trump’s at 26 percent.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio — who is also of Cuban heritage — are tied with 26 percent unfavorable, though Clinton’s favorable rating is much higher at 59 percent. Rubio lags behind at 32 percent.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has 16 percent unfavorable, and 35 percent favorable. And Ohio Gov. John Kasich has 14 percent unfavorability and 15 percent favorability.
The telephone poll was conducted Jan. 2- March 8, with random samples of between 1,173 and 1,236 Hispanic adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
