Least Shocking News of the Day: Hispanics don’t Like Trump
Via Gallup: Trump Has a Major Image Problem With Hispanics
And it goes well beyond party affiliation:
Hispanics tilt Democratic, with 50% identifying as Democratic or leaning Democratic in the Jan. 2-March 8 period, contrasted with 23% who identify as Republican or who lean Republican. Trump’s negative image, however, is not merely a result of Hispanics’ Democratic political orientation — evident in the substantially more positive images that Hispanics have of the other three Republican candidates. Two of these — Rubio and Kasich — actually have slightly more positive than negative ratings, while Cruz’s image tilts just slightly negative.
Trump also has significant image issues among the relatively small group of Hispanic Republicans interviewed in this period. He is the only one of the four GOP candidates with a negative image among Hispanic Republicans, with a net favorable rating of -29. By contrast, Rubio, Cruz and Kasich all have net positive images among Hispanic Republicans, with Rubio’s +34 the best of the group. Trump is significantly less popular with Hispanic Republicans than the two Democratic candidates in the race, Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
