Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is viewed unfavorably by over 4 in 10 Hispanics, according to a new poll, though she holds a huge lead over GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump with the voting bloc.

Forty-one percent of Hispanics in Friday’s Fox News Latino survey said they view Clinton negatively, compared with 56 percent who view her positively. Forty-two percent said she desires the presidency for herself and not for the good of the country.

The favorability numbers for Trump are far worse than Clinton’s. Seventy-four percent said they view the businessman unfavorably, while 23 percent had a favorable opinion of him.

Seventy-two percent said they believe that Trump is seeking the presidency for personal gain.

Overall, 60 percent of Hispanic voters said they would vote for Clinton in November, while 23 percent would pick Trump.

While that’s a huge margin, many campaign analysts predict Clinton will need to run up the score with minorities to win, as the businessman has an early advantage with white voters. 

Fox News Latino conducted its latest sampling of 886 registered Latino voters via interviews from May 14-17. It has a 3.5 percent margin of error.

Trump says Hispanic voters will come around to his candidacy despite his hardline stances on border security and illegal immigration and his controversial comments about criminals coming into the country from Mexico.

He has sworn that he will deport the nation’s illegal immigrant population and build a wall along America’s southern border with Mexico.
