Simple logic would dictate that Donald Trump is universally despised in Mexico. But in this case, simple logic would be wrong.

According to a survey conducted by El Financiero newspaper in March, about 2 percent of Mexicans (about 256,000 people) have a "high" or "very high" opinion of Trump, Fox News Latino reports. Mexico has a population north of 128 million, according to worldometers.com.

"Donald Trump is not your everyday candidate," Jesús González, a strategic projects organizer in Mexico City, told Fox News Latino. "He already has money and he knows how to make more, and I think that will allow the United States to take back its former glory as a world power."

Further, Gonzalez believes Trump's rhetoric about Mexicans and his insistence on building a wall is aimed at a small segment of the population, saying, "If the shoe fits, they should wear it," Gonzalez told Fox News Latino.

Other Mexicans who support Trump like that they know where he stands.

“It is better to bet on Trump than to support Obama with such a hypocritical political approach,” Lourdes Pacheco, a surgeon with dual citizenship living in Mexico City, told Fox News Latino.

It was Mexico's former President Vicente Fox who has said, repeatedly, to at least three media outlets, "I'm not going to pay for that f**king wall."

Fox, Mexico's president from 2000-2006, went on to tell the Kickass Politics podcast earlier in May that Trump is a false prophet. That, some Mexicans might say, is the pot calling the kettle black.

"Fox's discourse was exotic and rude, and he offered unreal promises just like Donald Trump," Javier Urbano, coordinator of the master's program in Migratory Issues at the Universidad Iberoamericana, told Fox News Latino. "And yet people here liked this eccentricity and rudeness."
