The fourth week of a national tracking poll by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund, Noticias Telemundo and Latino Decisions shows Hillary Clinton with a commanding 58-point lead over Donald Trump with Latino voters. The poll, which ran from October 2 to October 8 (a day before the second presidential debate), said Clinton got 74% of Latino support (a one-point increase from the previous week) and Trump got 16% (same the the previous week).
Of Clinton’s 74% support, 57% of respondents reported that they were “certain” to vote for her, while only 11% of Trump’s 16% support said they were “certain” to vote for him.
Here are findings from this week’s results:
Trump continues to have very high unfavorable ratings with Latinos. This week, Trump’s unfavorables were at 79%. NALEO also added that “Trump’s favorability has declined nine percentage points, falling from 25 percent to 16 percent this week.”
Passing immigration reform continues to be the most important issue for Latino voters. It has now topped the list for the fourth week in a row.
Latino voters believe Trump’s comments about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado were “disrespectful of women.” According to the poll, 75% thought the comments were “disrespectful of women,” with 16% saying they were “no big deal.”
