Hispanics want to see a Hillary Clinton-Marco Rubio matchup in the 2016 presidential election, a new poll shows, with Clinton easily beating the son of Cuban immigrants.

The survey, conducted by Latino Decisions, found the two were easily the most popular candidates among supporters of the two major parties.

Clinton won 65 percent of votes among all Latinos except those who identified themselves as Republicans. Rubio received double the amount of support to his nearest rival, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, among all except Democrats.

In the election of the favored candidates, Clinton would get 66 percent of the Latino vote to Rubio's 28 percent.

The poll showed that whoever the candidates turn out to be, the Latino vote would go overwhelmingly to the Democrat.

Other highlights from the poll include:

• If Chicano San Antonio mayor Julian Castro is the Democrats' vice presidential candidate, he would give the presidential candidate a strong boost. However, if Cuban-American Ted Cruz is the Republican vice presidential choice, Latinos would be less likely to vote for the GOP candidate.

• A GOP plan to allow legal residence to undocumented workers without a path to citizenship would harm Republicans with Hispanic voters.

• 48 percent of those polled said they had voted at least once for a Republican candidate, against 46 percent who said they had never voted for the party. However, 74 percent voted for Barack Obama in the last election, with only 18 percent supporting Mitt Romney.
