Donald Trump's support among Hispanics is slightly higher than both Mitt Romney and John McCain, but it pales in comparison to Democrat Hillary Clinton, a new Pew Research Center poll reports.
Here are the results, released Friday, based on surveying 2,245 Hispanic registered voters:
- Clinton: 66 percent.
- Trump: 24 percent.
But with Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson in the mix, here is the breakdown:
- Clinton: 58 percent.
- Trump: 20 percent.
- Johnson: 13 percent.
In the 2012 campaign, here's how Romney compared to President Barack Obama among Hispanics, according to Pew:
- Obama: 69 percent.
- Romney: 21 percent.
And in the 2008 race, here's McCain's showing:
- Obama: 66 percent.
- McCain: 23 percent.
Pew does not explain why Trump surpasses Romney or McCain — only saying that the center's National Survey on Latinos found
Clinton polling better on a wide range of issues, including immigration, education and healthcare.
The Pew survey was conducted June 15-26, with a margin of error of 2.4 percent.
