Hispanic Presidential Support in Florida

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Politico is reporting that Hillary Clinton (D) is leading Donald Trump (R) by 24 points when it comes to likely Hispanic voters in Florida, a battleground state. With Hispanic voters, Clinton holds a 54%-30% lead over Trump, which is a direct contrast with the Florida senatorial race between Cuban-American Incumbent Senator Marco Rubio (R) who’s leading with 48% against rival Patrick Murphy (D) who has 39%.

This support comes in the form of strong backing by Democrats who support her 75%-13% and independent voters who support her 61% to 20% from a poll of 600 likely Latino voters. Trump holds a 63%-19% lead over Clinton when it comes to Republican Hispanics, and the lead could be much bigger, but 14% are still undecided, which is double the number of undecided Latino Democrats.

Hillary is estimated to be below the pool of Florida Hispanic votes that Obama received in the 2012 election, but the margin is 3 points higher than Obama’s was. It should be noted that third party candidates were not part of the exit polls that were surveyed.

With yesterday’s Vice Presidential debate, both Tim Kaine (D) and Mike Pence (R) squared off in a debate that left Pence as the clear winner. Pence’s performance, as reported by CNN, resulted in 29% of their test group commenting that they were moved toward voting for Donald Trump.

All eyes are on Trump this Sunday to give an equally strong performance like his running mate.
