POLL: Trump Leads GOP Field Among Hispanics, Records 34% Favorability


Presidential candidate Donald Trump leads other GOP contenders among Hispanics, a recent poll shows.

Trump recorded a 34% favorability rating among Hispanics in a national poll conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP) among 1,087 registered voters between July 20-21.

Trump has made immigration a seminal part of his campaign, receiving praise, but also criticism, from the political left and right.

During a much-publicized visit to the border in Laredo, TX last Thursday, Trump told reporters he thought he would "win the Hispanic vote."

Gov. Bush (R-FL) follows Trump with a 31% favorability rating among Hispanics, and Senator Cruz is close behind with 30%.

Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rand Paul (R-KY) both recorded 29%, Gov. Scott Walker (WI-R) 26%, and businesswoman Carly Fiorina 25%.

Rounding out the poll was Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) with 21%, and former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) and neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, both with 16%.

Announced GOP candidates Gov. John Kasich, former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY),  former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA), and Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) were not presented among the results.

Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton leads Democrats with a 50% favorability rating among Hispanics, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) 38%, former Gov. Martin O'Malley (D-MD) 18%, Gov. Lincoln Chafee (D-RI) 16%, and Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) 13%.

PPP stated the margin of error for the overall survey was +/-3%. 80% of respondents were reached by phone, and 20% through the internet.
