Can Trump Win Over Latinos? (VIDEO)

Well, Trump is not doing very well [with Latinos]. The reports come out: ‘Trump 39 percent behind Hillary Clinton.’ But most of the polls I’ve looked at show that Trump is doing 8 to 10 points better among minorities than Romney did against Barack Obama and that the number he’s at with Latinos now — recent polls have it somewhere low 60’s to mid 20’s and actually give Trump an ability to get into the 30’s with Latinos.

And I think that what people dismiss is the idea with Latinos that immigration is their fourth or fifth highest priority, and their biggest priority, as with most Americans, is economic growth and economic development for themselves and their community. And I think that Trump has an ability to appeal to these voters in a way that other Republican candidates who are much more Wall Street- and business-oriented did not. And I think that Trump can get into the 30’s with Latinos, which would be a significant difference from the last election cycle.
