Toxic Trump: Poll Says Bye Bye Cuban Vote In Florida If He's The Nominee

Rethink Trump

Is there any demographic that Donald Trump has not alienated to the point where he’s more hated than a sexually transmitted disease? Despite closing in on 1,237 delegates for the GOP nomination, he’s a reaching a point when it comes time to debate Hillary Clinton, she will walk on stage, cackle, point at Trump and walk away.

One of the more solid pro-Republican voting blocs in the USA can be found in the Miami-Dade county of Florida and the large Cuban-American population there. Of course, it’s not so solid when Trump is figured as the nominee:

Donald Trump is the catalyst who could force a decisive break between Miami-Dade County’s influential Cuban-American voters and the Republican Party, a new poll has found.

Local Cuban Americans dislike Trump so much — and are increasingly so accepting of renewed U.S.-Cuba ties pushed by Democratic President Barack Obama — that Trump’s likely presidential nomination might accentuate the voters’ political shift away from the GOP, according to the survey shared with the Miami Herald and conducted by Dario Moreno, a Coral Gables pollster and a Florida International University associate politics professor.

Thirty-seven percent of respondents supported Trump, a number that is still higher than the 31 percent who backed Clinton — but also “the lowest in history that any potential Republican candidate polls among this traditionally loyal demographic,” according to Moreno.

Some won’t bother voting if he is the nominee:

About 10 percent of poll respondents said — unprompted in an open-ended question — that they wouldn’t vote at all if Trump wins the nomination. Voters are usually reluctant to admit that they plan to skip an election.

“If you’re in a swing district and 10 percent of the Republicans aren’t going to vote — 10 percent of the Cuban Americans aren’t going to vote — that’s very dangerous,” Moreno said.

Of course, Trump supporters think that because he won a primary in Maryland, he’s some kind of unstoppable force.

Then reality sets in. Look at these negatives!

Moreno surveyed 400 likely Miami-Dade Cuban-American voters from April 21-23, conducting more than three-fourths of the interviews in Spanish. His results mirror those from a national poll conducted last month by Latino Decisions, a firm that has worked for Clinton, on behalf of the pro-immigrant America’s Voice organization. That poll found, among other things, that 73 percent of Florida Hispanic voters have a “very unfavorable” opinion of Trump.

Who has unfavorables in the 70’s and wins?

Not anybody and particularly not Donald Trump.
