Trump: I will win the Latino vote

Donald Trump often vows he'll win the Hispanic vote if he becomes the Republican candidate for president next year.

If so, he might have some work to do.

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll released Wednesday finds that the real estate magnate is viewed unfavorably by 82% of Hispanics, with 68% feeling "strongly so." Just 15% of those surveyed view Trump favorably.

Those numbers are a sharp contrast to the Spanish-speaking Jeb Bush, who is viewed favorably by 43% of Hispanic voters, a higher percentage than is usual for Republicans.

But only 39% of whites have a favorable view of Bush, compared to 48% who have a positive opinion of Trump. The poll comes as Republicans are trying to expand its base after Mitt Romney won only 27% of the Hispanic vote in 2012
