Last Call For Your Chart Of The Week

Tonight's chart of the week comes from the new Washington Post/Univision poll of Hispanic voters on the 2016 presidential race, and shows the net favorability each candidate has among Hispanic voters:

Yeah, that's GOP frontrunner The Donald over there with a net minus 64, when the GOP candidate is going to need at least 40% of the Hispanic vote to have a real shot at winning in November.

Considering 51% of those polled say they would definitely support the Democrat in November, that's going to be nearly impossible for even Rubio to get.  McCain got 31%, Romney 27%.  I'm betting that while Rubio could match McCain's numbers in the general, that's not going to be enough to win the election for him.  Cruz would be close to Romney, and Trump?  Trump might actually get a negative number of Hispanic votes, frankly.
