With just eight days before Election Day, Hillary Clinton has a 60-point lead over Donald Trump with Latino voters, according to the seventh week results of an eight-week tracking poll from the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund and Noticias Telemundo.
The poll —which ran from October 23 until October 29 (the same day the FBI director James Comey alerted Congress about possible new evidence surrounding Clinton’s email controversy)— showed Clinton with 74% of Latino support and Trump with 14%. Compared to Week 6 of the poll, Clinton’s support stayed at 74%, while Trump’s support decreased by one point. In 2012, Barack Obama won the Latino vote over Mitt Romney by 44 points.
Of Clinton’s 74% Latino support, 58% of respondents said they were “certain” to vote for the Democratic nominee. Only 8% of respondents from Trump’s 14% support said they were “certain” for him. NALEO also reported via a release that “Spanish-language respondents were more likely to state they would be voting for Hillary Clinton (81 percent) than their English-language counterparts (64 percent), as well as college graduates (77 percent) and those under 39 (75 percent). Trump support was highest among Republicans (61 percent), English-language respondents (21 percent) and Latino voters making more than $60k a year (19 percent).”
In addition, the poll reported that 46% of Latino voters have already voted early or plan to vote before Election Day.
Conducted by Latino Decisions, the poll interviewed 250 registered Latino voters and combined them with 250 responses from the previous week’s poll. The margin of error is +/- 4.4%. However, the margins of error for smaller subgroups from the poll can be higher.
