Poll: Large majorities of black, Hispanic voters say Trump has been bad for them

Large majorities of black and Hispanic voters think Trump’s presidency has made things worse for people like them, according to a poll released Monday.

The Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey found that about two-thirds of Americans overall disapprove of how Trump is handling race relations.

Sixty-nine percent of Hispanic respondents said Trump’s actions have been bad for Hispanics generally, while only 19 percent think they’ve been good.

Both African Americans and Latinos also overwhelmingly said Trump’s actions have been bad for each other, as well as Muslims and women.

Among white Americans respondents, roughly a third said Trump’s actions have been good for black Americans, women and Hispanics, while about a quarter said they have been good for Muslims.

Forty-seven percent said Trump’s actions have been bad for Hispanics, 44 percent said they’ve been bad for Muslims and 39 percent said they’ve been bad for women and black Americans.

AP/NORC surveyed 1,286 adults between Sept. 20 and 23 by internet or phone. The margin of error for the sample is 3.8 points.
