“The Hispanics love me.” — Donald Trump
There he goes, thinking and spinning again.
Despite the hoopla over a freakish figure in Nevada – that Trump won 44 percent of the Hispanic vote, according to exit polls – most polling of Latinos nationwide shows we can’t stand The Donald. Still, in a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, Trump insists: “That was the single greatest vote ever cast for President Trump!”
But here’s a reality check: A nationwide survey by Latino Decisions of registered Hispanic voters finds that 87 percent have an unfavorable opinion of Trump. In a poll by the Washington Post and Univision, eight out of 10 Latinos viewed Trump unfavorably. And Trump calls the media dishonest?
In swing-state Florida, where the Republican Party’s leadership has wholeheartedly endorsed Trump, the dislike for the billionaire mogul dips a little. But the negative numbers are still high and show that the love Trump thinks he inspires in the heart of the largest minority group in the United States is one of the most delusional of the GOP front-runner’s statements. And he has quite a record on that score.
No matter what you call us, Hispanics or Latinos, or our geography, it’s simply not true that we like Trump.
