Hillary Clinton tops the entire Republican field in hypothetical 2016 election match-ups, according to a new national MSNBC/Telemundo/Marist poll, with GOP front-runner Donald Trump faring worst against the former secretary of state.

Ben Carson and Marco Rubio ran the closest to her in the poll of 2,360 registered voters, conducted between Nov. 15-Dec. 2:
  • Carson, by 48 percent to 47 percent; 61 percent to 35 percent among Latinos;
  • Rubio, by 48 percent to 45 percent, and 57 percent to 38 percent among Latinos;
  • Jeb Bush, by 49 percent to 45 percent, and 61 percent to 35 percent among Latinos;
  • Ted Cruz, by 51 percent to 44 percent, and 61 percent to 34 percent with Latinos;
  • Trump, by 52 percent to 41 percent, and 69 percent to 27 percent with Latinos.
However, the poll found that it wouldn't take just any Democrat to beat a Republican in the election, as if a "generic" Democrat ran against a "generic" GOP candidate, they would tie at 45 percent each, but the lead with Democrats expands among Latino voters, by 56 percent to 36 percent.

The Latino vote has been important in the past two elections, NBC notes, as in 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama defeated Arizona Sen. John McCain among Latinos by 36 points, at 67 percent to 31 percent.

Further, he defeated Mitt Romney by 44 points among Latinos in 2012, by 71 percent to 27 percent.

The poll carried an overall margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points, and one of 6 percentage points among the 264 Latino voters polled.
