Pew Hispanic Research has published results from a new poll of political preferences among Latino registered voters and nonvoters, indicating broad support for Hillary Clinton. It doesn’t contain a lot of suprises but I’m posting some of the tables so readers can have an update. The poll was conducted between June 15 – 26, 2016.

 

Hillary Clinton has a significant advantage among Latino votes, one that Donald Trump may find very difficult to overcome.

Contrary to popular opinion, immigration is not the top issue for Latino voters in general, although it may be for certain specific Hispanic groups – and this may differ in various parts of the country.  In fact, immigration is No. 4 on the list.

Hete’s the most interesting finding: Latino support for Hillary Clinton differs based on English fluency. The more fluent in English, the lower the enthusiasm. Another fascinating finding: Millennial Hispanics greatly favor Hillary Clinton.
