Hispanics Hate Trump: Hillary Clinton’s Approval Rating Beats Billionaire By 91 Points

Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 06:11 pm

A Gallup survey released on August 24, 2015, of 2,183 U.S. Hispanic adults conducted during July and August, reveals just how deeply unpopular Donald Trump has become with Latino voters. Given Trump’s explicitly racist campaign, it should come as little surprise that the billionaire is not well liked by Hispanic voters. However, the extent to which Latinos loathe Trump is truly staggering.

Only 14 percent of Hispanic adults say they have a favorable opinion of Donald Trump, compared to 65 percent who do not. Trump’s net favorable rating is an incredibly dismal (-51) percentage points. To put that in perspective, on the opposite side of the political spectrum, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has a 58 percent favorable to 18 percent unfavorable rating with Latinos. Clinton’s positive (+40) rating is an almost incomprehensible 91 percentage points better than Trump’s rating with Hispanics.

Since entering the presidential race, Donald Trump has made demonizing Latinos, especially Mexican immigrants, a cornerstone of his campaign. He referred to undocumented Mexicans as “rapists” during his highly publicized kick off event, and he hasn’t backed off his xenophobic rhetoric since.

By contrast, Hillary Clinton has expressed support for a humane, common sense immigration policy. She made that clear by issuing a statement in May, where she remarked:

The American people support comprehensive immigration reform not just because it’s the right thing to do – and it is – but because it will strengthen families, strengthen our economy, and strengthen our country. That’s why we can’t wait any longer, we can’t wait any longer for a path to full and equal citizenship. Now, this is where I differ with everybody on the Republican side.
The contrast between the two candidates could not be more stark. Fortunately, Hispanic-Americans appear to be paying attention to the clear differences between the two candidates.
As long as Donald Trump stays insulated within the overwhelmingly white GOP primaries and caucuses, he can maintain an illusion of electoral viability. However, in a head to head match up with Hillary Clinton, Trump’s miserable showing with Hispanic voters would all but guarantee his defeat in key swing states like Nevada and Colorado. Furthermore, a Trump candidacy would open the door for Hillary Clinton to win Arizona and possibly Texas as well. Donald Trump has built a wall between himself and Hispanic voters and if he becomes the Republican nominee, he will make the GOP pay for it.
