Trump holds steady among Latinos in new poll

President Donald Trump appears to be holding relatively steady support among Latino voters compared to his performance in 2016, according to a new poll released Tuesday by Telemundo.

Nationally, 25 percent of Latinos say they would vote to reelect Trump — a slight drop from the 28 percent that most exit polls showed voted for him in 2016 — and 31 percent approve of his job performance. By comparison, 64 percent of Latinos overall say they would vote to replace the president, and 57 percent support impeaching and removing him from office.

Fifty-four percent of Latino respondents who identify as independents said they would vote to replace Trump with a Democrat.

The 25 percent of Latinos who would reelect the president is roughly in line with both Trump’s performance in 2016, and Mitt Romney’s four years earlier. The president has held mostly steady among Latinos despite his harsh anti-immigrant rhetoric and controversial policies such as family separations at the border.
