Though U.S. Hispanics overall view Hillary Clinton three times more favorably than they do Donald Trump (65% to 21%), her edge is significantly smaller among U.S.-born Hispanics (43% to 29%). Meanwhile, foreign-born Hispanics are almost seven times more likely to view Clinton (87%) than Trump (13%) favorably.
These data come from Gallup’s annual Minority Rights and Relations poll, conducted June 7-July 1.
Notably, U.S.-born Hispanics’ views of the candidates are similar to those of the larger population of national adults. Forty-three percent of U.S.-born Hispanics and 44% of national adults view Clinton favorably. Twenty-nine percent of U.S.-born Hispanics view Trump favorably, while his favorability is 34% among national adults.
Therefore, Clinton owes a lot of her overall image advantage among Hispanics to those born outside the U.S.
