Two-thirds of Latino voters view Obama positively

More than three times as many Latino voters view former President Obama favorably than those who view President Trump favorably, according to a new poll.
A poll of Latino voters published Sunday by Noticias Telemundo, NBC News and The Wall Street Journal found that 67 percent of Latino voters have a positive view of Obama, while just 20 percent have a favorable view of Trump.

The poll found that 47 percent of Latinos view Obama very positively and 20 percent view him somewhat positively. A smaller portion of Latinos — 14 percent — said they hold a negative view of Obama.
Obama’s favorability ratings are consistent with results from the same poll at the end of his term. In the October 2016 version of the poll, 69 percent said they had a positive view of him, with 53 percent viewing him very positively and 16 percent viewing him somewhat positively.
Obama has reemerged on the campaign trail recently, bursting back onto the scene earlier this month with a speech in Illinois in which he offered a blistering rebuke of Trump. Obama also campaigned for several House candidates during a trip to California.
The poll also found that 12 percent of Latinos have a very positive view of Trump, while 8 percent have a somewhat positive view. Significantly more Latino voters view the president negatively, according to the poll, with 50 percent viewing him very negatively and 12 percent holding a somewhat negative view.
The poll’s results were based on interviews with 300 Latino registered voters from Sept. 16-18. The poll had a margin of error of 5.66 percentage points.
