Poll: Donald Trump Leads Mitt Romney, John McCain with Hispanics


Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump has more support from Hispanic voters than both 2008 GOP nominee Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney had during their general elections in 2008 and 2012.

A recent Pew Research poll found 24 percent of Hispanic voters support Trump in a head-to-head matchup with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Sixty-six percent of Hispanic voters preferred Clinton.

“Those numbers reflect Hispanic support for the two last Republican presidential nominees,” The Hill reports, noting Romney’s poll numbers were at 21 percent with Hispanic voters, while McCain polled at 23 percent — both slightly behind Trump’s 24 percent.

The last Republican to win the White House, President George W. Bush, won 35 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2000 and 40 percent in 2004.
