Telemundo Poll Says 66 Percent Of Spanish-speaking Americans Believe Trump Won The Debate


Trump not only won the first debate he dominated in it!

A recent poll by the Spanish television network Telemundo states that 66% of Spanish-speaking Americans think Trump won the debate.

That’s huge!

NATIONAL POLL: Should Ilhan Omar Be IMPEACHED and Removed From Office?

32 million Latinos are registered to vote this November.

They will be a key part of who gets into office in swing states.

The Independent covered the story exclusively:

In Tuesday night’s feisty first presidential debate, it could be hard to make out anything, let alone decide who was more persuasive, but two thirds of followers of the Spanish language TV network Telemundo said Trump came out on top, according to a Twitter poll.

Sixty-six percent of respondents said Trump won the debate, though, as anchor Felicidad Aveleyra warns in Spanish, “This isn’t a scientific poll.”

In general, Biden retains a decisive lead among Latinos, with 62 percent supporting him over Trump, according to a mid-September the Wall Street Journal/NBC/Telemundo poll.  This result is basically in line with 2016 election results, where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, wont 66 percent of the Latino vote.

Newsweek covered the story also:

While the question of who won Tuesday’s presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden lies in the court of public opinion, many Spanish-speaking viewers of Telemundo gave their support to Trump in a poll conducted on Twitter.

Both candidates have campaigned heavily in the Latino community. Trump’s campaign has attempted to reel in Latino supporters with his Latinos for Trump initiative. Biden made an appearance at a September Hispanic Heritage Month celebration in Florida.

Work by the Trump campaign to attract Latino voters may be paying off.In a poll conducted after the debate, 66 percent of participants told Telemundo they believed Trump won the debate. Only 34 percent of poll participants thought Biden made a better showing in Tuesday’s debate. Telemundo hosts warned the poll was “not scientific” but was based on the responses on the participation of its followers on Twitter.

The poll has received backlash because it wasn’t a scientific poll but instead it was a poll conducted on Twitter.

Whether the poll is on Twitter or it’s a scientific poll if Trump wins he will receive backlash.
