Republicans Unsure of How to Beat Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton leads the Republican presidential field in hypothetical general-election match-ups, with Ben Carson and Marco Rubio running the closest to her, according to a new national MSNBC/Telemundo/Marist poll.

And with just one exception, the margin of Clinton's lead among Latino voters determines just how competitive each match-up is.

Clinton's biggest lead is against current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump: She's ahead of him by 11 points among all voters, 52 percent to 41 percent, and a whopping 42 points among Latino voters, 69 percent to 27 percent.

To put these Latino poll numbers into perspective, Barack Obama defeated John McCain among Latinos by 36 points in 2008, 67 percent to 31 percent.

And he beat Mitt Romney by 44 points in 2012, 71 percent to 27 percent.
