Poll: Florida Hispanics back Clinton 60% to 30% over Donald Trump
An Oct. 26-30 Univision poll of 800 registered Hispanic voters in Florida found Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump 60 percent to 30 percent, with Gary Johnson drawing 2 percent and Jill Stein 3 percent. Four years ago, Florida exit polls showed Barack Obama won 60 percent and Mitt Romney 39 percent.
The poll conducted by Bendixen & Amandi International and The Tarrance Group found Clinton trailing Trump among Florida Cubans, 49 to 42 percent, leading among Puerto Ricans 71 percent to 19 percent and leading Trump among other Hispanics 71 percent to 20 percent.
In the U.S. Senate race, Democrat Patrick Murphy led Republican Marco Rubio among Hispanics 50 percent to 44.
At least 58 percent of the Hispanics surveyed said they trust Clinton to do a better job handling the economy, handling the threat of terrorism, immigration reform and that she has the better temperment for the presidency.
Sixty percent had a favorable view of Clinton and 37 percent unfavorable, compared to 30 percent favorable and 67 percent unfavorable for Trump.
