More than three out of four voters of color polled in a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll
responded unfavorably to presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, adding concerns to his low numbers among minority voters.
When combined with a poll from last month:
- 88 percent of African-Americans see Trump unfavorably;
- 87 percent of Hispanics have an unfavorable view;
- More than 75 percent of each group have a "strongly unfavorable" view.
In comparison, presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's poll numbers show her to be nearly as popular with African-American or Hispanic voters as Trump is unpopular:
- African-Americans, 78 percent favorable;
- Hispanics, 70 percent favorable;
- White voters, 31 percent favorable.
Clinton's favorable numbers among white voters, though, has dropped by several points:
- 59 percent in 2013;
- 38 percent in mid-2015;
- 31 percent, now.
Overall, voters have unfavorable views of both Trump and Clinton, with him marking 70 percent unfavorable and he scoring 55 percent unfavorable, and those ratings are higher than in any Post-ABC poll in almost 25 years.
Part of Trump's issues date back to last year, when he complained in his first campaign speech about Mexican immigrants and has not backed down — including just a few weeks ago, when he attacked the judge overseeing a lawsuit against him and the now-defunct Trump University.
However, Clinton's weakness with white voters could cause her problems, reports The Post, with her 67-percent unfavorable rating among whites higher than President Barack Obama's at this point in 2012. However, Trump also marks low among white voters, at 55 percent.
The polls, conducted of combined May and June survey, surveyed 1,384 people, including sampling 187 African Americans and 250 Hispanics.
