Poll Shows 75% Of Latinos Disapprove Of Trump

Donald Trump has made some much-publicized comments about Latinos in recent weeks, including that he's well liked by them. However, a poll taken in late July by NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo indicates that is not true.

Seventy-five percent of the 250 Latino respondents said they think poorly of the candidate, and 61 percent qualified their feelings of Trump as being 'very negative.'

Individuals were also asked how they felt about the comment Trump made in June while announcing his candidacy. At that time, the real estate mogul accused Mexico of "...sending people that have lots of problems...They are bringing drugs. They are bringing crime. They're rapists."

Fifty-five percent said the words are "insulting and racist and have no place in a campaign for president."
